Teratomas are the most common type of germ cell tumour. It can be congenital or acquired and are usually found in gonads (testes and ovaries). Parasitic dermoid cysts are rare and their actual incidence is unknown. We are reporting a case of 25-year-old gravida two, para one and one living child, who underwent emergency cesarean section in view of symptomatic placenta previa. A parasitic dermoid cyst was found incidently in front of uterus which was attached to uterovasical fold of bladder. This cyst did not show any connection to uterus or adnexa...

Mature cystic teratoma co-existing with a mucinous cystadenocarcinoma is an infrequently encountered entity with only a handful of cases reported till date. The possibilities in such a case are either a malignant transformation of a benign teratoma into adenocarcinoma or a collision tumor between a mature cystic teratoma and a mucinous tumour of either a primary ovarian surface epithelial-stromal origin or a secondary from a primary gastrointestinal tract tumour. The importance of distinguishing between the two entities has significant bearing on subsequent therapeutic management...

We present a very rare case of malignant transformation of a benign mature cystic teratoma. The pathology report revealed malignant transformation of both the epithelial and sarcomatous elements of a benign dermoid cyst. To the best of our knowledge, this appears to be the third case of a malignant fibrous histiocytoma and a squamous cell carcinoma developing from a mature cystic teratoma. Malignant transformation of a dermoid cyst is usually diagnosed postmenopausally, but our patient was premenopausal. The etiology and prognosis of malignant transformation of this benign condition remain unknown...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine the diagnostic accuracy of MRI for detecting acute appendicitis in pregnancy in a multi-institution study involving general body MR readers with no specific expertise in MR imaging of the pregnant patient. METHODS: Retrospective review of MRI examinations on PACS in 42 pregnant patients was evaluated for acute right lower quadrant pain. Three fellowship-trained general body radiologists analyzed the MRI examinations in consensus and attempted to localize the appendix, assess for features of appendicitis, and exclude alternative etiologies for the right lower quadrant pain...

OBJECTIVE: Intracranial dermoid cysts are rare, slow-growing masses of sellar, parasellar regions, and posterior cranial fossa. The symptomatology of these cysts depends on the localization and presence of rupture. The preoperative diagnosis of these cysts by imagining techniques is distinctive as they have characteristic appearances. PATIENT: Endoscopic transnasal transpterygoid approach to infratemporal fossa for an extradural dermoid cyst of a 24 year-old woman is presented in this clinical report...

INTRODUCTION: Retrorectal cysts are rare benign lesions which are frequently diagnosed in middle-aged females. According to their origin and histopathologic features, retrorectal cysts are classified as squamous-lined (dermoid or epidermoid) cysts, postanal gut (tailgut) cysts, and rectal duplications (enteric or enterogenous cysts, enterocystomas). Described in this case report is an extremely unusual patient, a woman who simultaneously had a retrorectal cyst and an ovarian serous cystadenoma in addition to a long history of misdiagnosis and multiple unsuccessful surgeries...

REVIEW
K H Lee
Mature ovarian cystic teratoma (also known as ovarian dermoid cyst) is a slow growing encapsulated tumor which contains well differentiated derivations of at least two out of three germ cell layers (i.e., ectoderm, mesoderm and endoderm). The lesion is lined by ectodermally derived squamous epithelium containing skin appendages. The cyst content commonly consists of keratin, sebaceous materials and fat. On CT images, the intracystic globules of sebum/fat could appear as multiple free floating rounde hypoattenuating nodules, giving the classical 'sack-of-marbles' appearance...

AIMS: The histogenesis and cell lineage of small cell carcinoma of the ovary of hypercalcaemic type (SCCOHT) is unknown. We aim to provide evidence that this may be a primitive germ cell neoplasm arising from a teratoma. METHODS/ RESULTS: Following the identification of two cases of SCCOHT associated with germ cell tumours (one dermoid cyst, one immature teratoma with a focus of yolk sac tumour), we undertook a literature review to look for any prior reports of SCCOHT in association with other neoplasms or elements...

RATIONALE: Spontaneous rupture of intracranial dermoid cyst is a rare but serious clinical event that can result in cerebral ischemia. Cerebral vasospasm and vasculitis are considered as potential mechanisms of dermoid cyst rupture-related cerebral ischemia. However, the hemodynamic mechanisms between cerebral ischemia and dermoid cyst rupture are not well known. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 55-year-old, right-handed man was admitted to our hospital with sudden receptive aphasia and right-sided hypoalgesia...

REVIEW
Roa Alammari, Michelle Lightfoot, Hye-Chun Hur
Ovarian cysts are common in the reproductive age. Pathological cysts such as endometriomas and dermoids often require surgical intervention if symptomatic. Laparoscopic cystectomy is the first line treatment for these cysts, and is associated with better pain control and less recurrence than drainage or cyst ablation procedures. There has been an emerging concern about the effect of ovarian cystectomy on ovarian reserve with some evidence of short term and long term reduction in ovarian reserve. Certain cyst characteristics (endometrioma pathology, large cyst size, bilateral presentation) are associated with greater decline in ovarian reserve after cystectomy...

BACKGROUND: Submental dermoid cysts are uncommon midline cysts which occur due to entrapment of ectoderm between the second and third branchial arches during embryogenesis. Most dermoid cysts of the head and neck are benign, but rarely malignant transformation may occur. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of a carcinosarcoma arising in a submental dermoid cyst. CASE PRESENTATION: A 42-year-old Sri Lankan Tamil man presented with a large cystic swelling in his submental region which was diagnosed as an extensive submental dermoid cyst...
