Direct excision of dermoid cysts of the brow may lead to a prominent facial scar. These scars can be completely avoided with an endoscopic temporal approach that places the incisions in the hair-bearing portion of the scalp. Over the past 10 years, this approach was offered to every pediatric patient with a cyst in the area of the brow, and outcomes were favorable. The operative technique and results in 8 consecutive patients are reviewed.
