Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Dermoid cysts are the most common teratomatous lesion; however, they infrequently arise in the head and neck region. Very rarely, dermoid cysts have been described in the thyrohyoid region, masquerading as a thyroid nodule. We describe the case of a 31-year-old woman with a lateral neck mass, associated with the thyroid gland inferiorly, which was excised and found to be a dermoid cyst. We then review the pathogenesis of dermoid cysts in this region, as well as review diagnosis and treatment of dermoid cysts of the head and neck.
