Intraoral Dermoid Cyst-How Common are they in a Paediatric Population? A Retrospective Case Series
Received Date: Sep 09, 2019 / Accepted Date: Oct 17, 2019 / Published Date: Oct 24, 2019
Oral dermoid cysts are rare especially in the paediatric population. They can rapidly enlarge causing dysphagia and airway compromise. We present a case series of paediatric oral dermoid cysts in our centre over the past 5 years and suggest a predisposition to tongue tie procedures. All our cases required surgical intervention and we suggest that all clinicians consider this important diagnosis when presented with a child with an intraoral swelling.
