Purpose: To present a young female patient with left anterior orbital leiomyoma that originates from the supraorbital neurovascular bundle. Case presentation: A 41-year-old female patient was admitted to our clinic with a complaint of swelling of the left upper eyelid. Based on the ophthalmological and imaging assessments, the excisional biopsy with the preliminary diagnosis of dermoid cyst was planned. The histopathological and immunohistochemical examinations of excised sample revealed surprisingly that the tumour was a leiomyoma...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to assess the prevalence of FFT as an additional tethering element in children operated for closed spinal dysraphism, where FFT was not the primary tethering pathology. METHODS: This is a retrospective study of 195 children (< 18 years of age) who underwent surgery for closed spinal dysraphism and did not have FFT as the primary diagnosis. All patients were operated during the period 2005-2017 by a single surgeon. The commonest diagnosis was a lipomyelomeningocele (LMMC, n = 81, 41...

Frontorhiny is one of the two forms of mid-facial malformations characterized by ocular hypertelorism, wide and short nasal ridge, bifid nasal tip, broad columella, widely separated nares, long and wide philtrum and V-shaped hairline. Sometimes these phenotypes are associated with ptosis and midline dermoid cysts. Frontorhiny inherits in an autosomal recessive pattern. Sequence variants in the Aristaless-like homeobox 3 (ALX3) gene underlying frontorhiny have been reported previously. Here, in the present study, we have investigated four patients in a consanguineous family of Pakistani origin segregating frontorhiny in autosomal recessive manner...

BACKGROUND: Nasal dermoid cysts are common tumors in children. Due to anomalies in embryologic development of the nasal complex, sometimes an intracranial extension exists. When these cysts become infected they can lead to meningitis, brain abscess and death. METHODS: We report the case of a 1.5-year-old girl admitted to the paediatric intensive care unit after infection of a nasal dermoid cyst. RESULTS: The infant had a spiking fever and epileptic seizures...

In the literature, less than ten cases of holocord intramedullary abscess in children have been described. A 15-month-old girl presented with flaccid paraplegia and dermal sinus in the sacral region. MRI highlighted an infected lumbar dermoid cyst. The child underwent surgery to remove the cyst and purulent collection. Five days after surgery, she developed upper limbs paresis. An MRI showed a holocord abscess. A catheter was inserted through a cervical myelotomy into the abscess for drainage with a good postoperative recovery...

Meningitis retention syndrome (MRS), a rare complication of aseptic meningitis, can present with acute urinary retention. The rupture of a dermoid cyst, which is a benign intracranial tumor, can sometimes induce chemical meningitis. We herein present a case of chemical meningitis and acute urinary retention that was induced by the rupture of a dermoid cyst. The patient experienced urinary retention for approximately 60 days, and then made a complete recovery thereafter. This is the first reported case of acute urinary retention due to the rupture of a dermoid cyst...

A 32-year-old woman, who presented for laparoscopic sterilization after two full-term normal deliveries, was incidentally diagnosed to have a left-sided complex cyst in the pouch of Douglas (POD). She had no history of previous surgeries or any symptoms of lower abdominal pain, nausea, or vomiting in the past. She underwent laparoscopy, and the left ovary and distal portion of the fallopian tube were absent in their normal position. An ectopic left ovary with dermoid cyst was noted in the POD. The right ovary and tube were in their normal position...

Pancreatic dermoid cysts are rare and benign congenital abnormalities of germ cell origin. They occur equally in males and females without age predilection. Though radiographic imaging aids in the diagnosis, most times they are inconclusive and require fine-needle aspiration cytology for confirmation. We report the first case of a dermoid cyst presenting as recurrent pancreatitis in a 49-year-old male. Computed tomography scan, followed by magnetic resonance imaging, showed a complex cystic mass lesion adjacent to the pancreatic tail...

Several periorbital lesions can be clinically misdiagnosed as dermoid cyst. We retrospectively reviewed the histopathological findings for 97 biopsied periorbital lesions with a clinical diagnosis of dermoid cyst from January 2006 to July 2016 at a single center and identified 5 cases that were eventually found to have been misdiagnosed. The main presenting symptom was a long-standing mobile painless mass with intact overlying skin below the medial aspect of the brow in 4 patients and below the center of the brow in 1 patient...

We report an extremely rare case of a dermoid cyst of the urinary bladder in a 30-year-old female who presented with pain in the left flank and dysuria since 9 months. On imaging (ultrasound and computed tomography), a relatively well-defined mass lesion with areas of fat and calcification was seen arising from the bladder wall. Cystoscopy showed presence of hair on the surface of the lesion. Histopathological findings were consistent with dermoid cyst in the urinary bladder.

This case is, to the authors' knowledge, the first reported case in the literature of bilateral orbital abscesses as result of an infected nasal dermoid. The baby presented with what proved to be bilateral supraorbital subperiosteal abscesses with associated frontal osteitis/osteomyelitis and soft tissue infection of the glabella. Methicillin-sensitive staphylococcus aureus infection was found in the setting of a midline nasal dermoid with tuft of hair and infected sinus tract that was at least initially missed on diagnosis...

OBJECTIVE: Benign mature teratoma during pregnancy is common, mostly discovered incidentally by antenatal sonography. However, repeated pregnancy coincident with ovarian mature teratoma is rarely reported. The cases of teratoma with rapid growing characteristics are even more unique. CASE REPORT: A 17-year-old woman was pregnant at 6 weeks of gestation with a left ovarian teratoma. She underwent artificial abortion followed by surgical removal of the teratoma. However, eleven years after the surgery, a right ovarian teratoma was found incidentally by antepartum sonography at 21 weeks of gestation...

A wide range of masses develop in the nose, nasal cavity, and nasopharynx in children. These lesions may arise from the nasal ala or other structures of the nose, including the mucosa covering any surface of the nasal cavity, the cartilaginous or osseous portion of the nasal septum, the nasal turbinates, and the nasal bones. Lesions may also arise from the nasopharynx or adjacent structures and involve the nose by way of direct extension. The causes of nasal masses in children include congenital and developmental disorders such as congenital nasolacrimal duct mucocele, dermoid cyst, cephalocele, and nasal neuroglial heterotopia; inflammatory and infectious processes such as mucocele, polyp, and pyogenic granuloma; benign neoplasms such as infantile hemangioma and juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma; malignant lesions such as rhabdomyosarcoma and nasopharyngeal carcinoma; and masses related to prior trauma such as septal hematoma...

PURPOSE: To assess the sensitivity of computed tomography for the diagnosis of spontaneous localized orbital dermoid cyst rupture with granulomatous reaction. METHODS: The charts of 42 patients with dermoid cysts were reviewed retrospectively. The data collected included demographics, clinical features, CT imaging, and postoperative histopathological analysis of the lesions. The association between radiological signs of inflammation and histopathological evidence of an inflammatory reaction was tested by univariate logistic regression...

Metastatic primary testicular carcinoid tumor remains a very rare condition. We report the first case of metastatic primary testicular carcinoid tumor where along retroperitoneal lymph node dissection excision of the Inferior Vena Cava was also performed. The rarity is further emphasised by the presence of a contralateral testicular dermoid cyst. Given the features of the tumor were not in keeping with the traditional predictors of metastases (primary tumor >7.3 cm, poor differentiation and the presence of carcinoid syndrome) this case adds valuable addition to the relatively limited literature available on this rare condition...

Giant ovarian cysts, ≥15 cm in diameter, are quite rare in women of reproductive age. Here, we present a case of ovarian cyst with unusual presentation treated by laparoscopic surgery. On histology, mass was found to be mature cystic teratoma. The diagnostic and management challenges posed by this huge ovarian cyst were discussed in the light of the literature.

Congenital midline nasal anomalies are rare, with a prevalence of 1 in 20,000 to 40,000 births and with 5% to 7% of them being nasal glioma. Differential diagnoses of nasal anomalies include nasal dermoid cysts, gliomas, encephaloceles, nasal polyps, and some other rare anomalies. Due to current medical technological advancements, most of these anomalies are easily correctable, though delaying management may lead to fatal effects. This report describes two cases-one of nasal glioma and one of nevus lipomatosus cutaneous superficialis-that presented as respiratory distress in a newborn...
