Lympho-epithelial cyst is a rare, non-odontogenic, benign, soft tissue developmental cyst emerging within the oral cavity. Oral lympho-epithelial cyst predominantly appears within ventral surface or posterolateral lingual margin, floor of mouth, soft palate, buccal mucosa, hard palate, labial mucosa, palatoglossal fold, tonsillar pillar, lip, glossodesmus fold or retro-molar region. The asymptomatic lesion can represent as a miniature, painless lump or a yellowish white, soft to firm, submucosal nodule of around ~one centimetre magnitude. Cyst cavity is layered with attenuated, para-keratinized, ortho-keratinized or non-keratinized stratified squamous, pseudo-stratified columnar, respiratory metaplastic, ciliated pseudostratified or ciliated columnar epithelium with mucous or goblet cells and intensely infiltrated by mature, small lymphocytes configuring germinal centres.
