Nasal dermoids are unusual lesions resulting from embryopathology. They are diagnosed easily by physical examination. Treatment is complete surgical excision, aided by microsurgical techniques. Involvement of the skullbase is common with "deep-seated" ND, and intracranial involvement is not uncommon. The high-resolution CT scanner is believed to be valuable in diagnosing ...
