Özet

The first case of a postrhinoplasty cyst lined with unusual stratified squamous epithelium, unlike the other published mucous ones, is described in this article. There are two different theories accounting for this complication: namely mucosal herniation and the free graft theory. Although the cyst was very close to the marginal rim incision, there was no connection between the cyst and vestibuler skin. Thus the free graft theory is more logical than the herniation theory to explain the development of this cyst.
