A Case Report on Submental Dermoid

Dr. K. Beatrice Jeba Mani | Dr. G. Saravana Kumar

Abstract: This article presents a detailed case report of a 48-year-old female patient with a rare presentation of a dermoid cyst in the midline neck, highlighting the challenges and nuances in diagnosis and management. Despite being commonly misdiagnosed as thyroid tumors, dermoid cysts require specific attention due to their congenital origin, histological composition, and potential for misdiagnosis. Through an exploration of the patient?s clinical presentation, diagnostic process, and surgical management via a Sistrunk procedure, this study emphasizes the importance of considering dermoid cysts in differential diagnoses for neck swellings. The findings underscore the critical role of histological examination in confirming the diagnosis and the efficacy of surgical excision in treating these benign yet potentially complicated tumors. The case contributes valuable insights into the surgical approach, potential complications, and the excellent prognosis post-operatively, underscoring the significance of early and accurate diagnosis.
