The most recent case report of dermoid cyst of the nose in American literature was made by Hagens1 in 1938. His article included a complete review of the literature, which revealed that only 3 similar cases had been reported in America. More cases had been reported in European literature. Luongo,2 with his report of a case, reviewed the genesis of these cysts. In most cases previously reported the cyst has been in the upper portion of the nose, and the location necessitated an external operative approach. The case to be reported here differed in Lateral roentgenogram, showing a probe in the fistula and cyst. The outline of the nose was added to show the relation of the probe to the soft tissues. that the cyst was confined to the cartilaginous portion of the septum and the fistula opened between the two lower alar cartilages on the dorsum of nose.
