Abstract

Eight cases of congenital dermoid cysts over the anterior fontanelle have been encountered in Chinese children at the Veterans' General Hospital, Taipei, in the past 4 years. This is the largest series of this anomaly reported in a Chinese population. These children were 3 months to 13 years old, with a female-to-male ratio of 5:3. All of the cysts presented with a nontender subgaleal mass over the anterior fontanelle. The size of these cysts ranged from 1 to 5 cm. The contents of the cysts were pasty and semisolid. In CT scan studies and at surgery, the cysts showed no intracranial extension. Simple surgical excision was adequate.
