Unusual Presentation of Congenital Dermal Sinus on Lateral Buttock

Dr. Sagar B Joshi | Niharika N Singh

Abstract: Congenital Dermal Sinus is rare disease usually present in the midline of the body and may communicate with spinal canal. We present one-year-old boy with dimple inthe right lateral buttock noted since birth. MRI showed tract extending from dimple, traversing the subcutaneous tissue and connecting to the abscess cavity in right pelvic cavity and not connected to the spinal canal. MRI also showed no abnormality in spinal canal. Histopathological examination had shown sinus tract lined by squamous epithelium suggesting epidermoid cyst. Staph aureus (MSSA) and Klebsiella pneumoniae species are identified in culture.
