• The sporadic occurrence of several dermoid cysts of the head and neck in children led us to investigate the relative incidence in a series of 594 epidermal cysts in which 33 such lesions were found. We review the classification of dermoid cysts according to their embryogenesis and location to help avert diagnostic or therapeutic pitfalls.
This study emphasizes the importance of adequate general anesthesia and excision of these interesting lesions.
