Department of Radiology, Northwell Health System, The Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, 300 Community Drive, Manhasset, NY 11030, USA. Electronic address:

Dermoid cysts, or mature cystic teratomas, are complicated by malignant degeneration in only 1-2% of cases. Rarely, dermoid cysts result in complications of small bowel obstruction or entero-ovarian fistula formation. In the current report we present the case of a 59-year-old female with a known dermoid cyst who presented with leukocytosis and was discovered to have a small bowel obstruction at the level of an ileo-ovarian fistula.

Nasofrontal surgical reconstruction by external table flap of frontal bone following removal of a dermoid cyst revealed by a fistula: A case report and review of the literature.

GMS Interdiscip Plast Reconstr Surg DGPW 2019 30;8:Doc01. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

Neurosurgery Department, Arrazi Hospital, University Hospital Mohammed VI, Marrakesh, Morocco.

Nasofrontal fistulas correspond to the persistence of an abnormal communication of embryological origin between the deep layer of the skin and the central nervous system (CNS). They can rarely be associated with a dermoid cyst and be revealed by a locoregional infection, and especially neuromeningeal infections can be serious. The treatment is mainly surgical by performing a total excision of the cyst and the repair of defects. Read More

Evolution of epidermoid cyst into dermoid cyst: Embryological explanation and radiological-pathological correlation.

Neuroradiol J 2019 Apr 3;32(2):92-97. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

2 Department of Pathology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, India.

Intracranial dermoid and epidermoid cysts are usually considered to be two different entities in the radiological and surgical literature. Epidermoid cysts are classically off midline in location, isointense to cerebrospinal fluid on T1 and T2-weighted images and have restricted diffusion, whereas dermoid cysts are classically midline in location, have T1-hyperintense regions due to the presence of fat and show facilitated diffusion. We report a case of radiological epidermoid cyst in baseline imaging, which evolved into a radiological dermoid cyst over time, and explain this unique occurrence with a review of the embryology and histopathogenesis of these cysts.

Department of Pediatric Neurosurgery, Istituto Giannina Gaslini, Genoa, Italy.

Objective: Given the lack of significant responses to many queries regarding behavior, treatment options, and possible prevention of iatrogenic intraspinal inclusion tumors (IITs), we think that further clinical, radiologic, and follow-up data are mandatory to better characterize this entity. We retrospectively reviewed a series of 14 consecutive patients with IIT occurring after myelomeningocele repair. The long follow-up is a mainstay of this series and may help a better understanding of the history of this slow-growing disease. Read More

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2018 Nov/Dec;34(6):e208-e209

Department of Ophthalmology, UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, Texas.

Dermoid cysts in the orbit classically present in children as a mass in the superotemporal or superonasal orbit along the zygomatico-frontal or fronto-ethmoidal suture lines. The presence of a dermoid cyst in the superficial eyelid, not associated with the tarsus, has only been reported once previously. The authors present a case of a 60-year-old man with a painless right lower eyelid mass inferonasally that was completely excised and found to be a dermoid cyst. Read More

Bahcesehir University, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Neurosurgery, Gaziantep Medical Park Hospital, Gaziantep, Turkey.

Tethered cord syndrome (TCS), a neurological disorder characterized by the lower settlement of the conus medullaris, is a congenital spinal disease which is caused by split cord syndrome, meningomyelocele, and spinal tumors. Cranial dermoid tumor (CDT) is a congenital benign tumor which is generally located on the midline of the cranium. Even though TCS is highly associated with spinal dermoid tumor, the relationship of CDT and TCS is unusual. Read More

Follicular carcinoma arising in a large ectopic lingual thyroid: a case report and review of literature.

J Surg Case Rep 2018 Oct 22;2018(10):rjy196. Epub 2018 Oct 22.

Department of Surgery, Makassed General Hospital, Beirut, Lebanon.

Ectopic lingual thyroid has been described, however, follicular carcinoma arising within it is an extremely rare entity with only 40 cases reported in the literature. Lingual thyroid carcinoma is undistinguishable from benign enlargement of lingual thyroid, the later should also be differentiated from many oropharyngeal pathologies including but not limited to thyroglossal duct cyst, lipoma, dermoid cyst and salivary gland tumors. Ectopic lingual nature of thyroid tissue can be diagnosed with scintigraphy scan; however, malignant transformation confirms just after pathological examination. Read More

Infantile Dermoid Cyst in the Lateral Wall of the Cavernous Sinus: A Case Report and Literature Review.

NMC Case Rep J 2018 Oct 20;5(4):111-113. Epub 2018 Sep 20.

Department of Neurosurgery, Sendai Medical Center, Sendai, Miyagi, Japan.

Dermoid tumors originating from the cavernous sinus are typically intradural, and thus, presentation with ophthalmoplegia is uncommon. Infantile dermoid tumors originating from the interdural space of the lateral wall of the cavernous sinus are also very rare. We herein present a 4-year-old infantile case of a dermoid cyst that was embedded in the lateral wall of the cavernous sinus. Read More
