Dermoid Cyst

Dr. Sonal Madan*, Dr. Deval Mehta**, Dr. Smit Desai***.

Dermoid cysts of the Pre-auricular area are extremely rare. We report one case of Pre-auricular dermoid Cyst. Case involved a gradually enlarging mass of the superior and anterior aspect of the pre-auricular region on left side. During the operation, a lesion was found just under the skin, not fixed parotid or adjacent cartilage. Histologically, specimen contained desquamated squamous epithelium and keratin in the lumen. Dermoid cysts at the pre auricular region are rare and a diagnostic challenge, but , it should be considered as a differential diagnosis in cases of painless long standing enlargement of parotid gland which is soft in consistency.
