Radiologic findings of a congenital suprasternal dermoid cyst

Ahmet Savranlar1, Tülay Özer, Varım Numanoğlu, Banu Doğan Gün

A congenital cystic mass was detected at the
suprasternal notch of a seven-month-old male infant.
After radiologic examinations including ultrasonography,
computed tomography, and magnetic resonance
imaging, the cyst was excised and diagnosed as a
dermoid cyst. Dermoid cysts of the head and neck
are rare lesions, but a midline location is characteristic
for these congenital masses. To our knowledge,
only two reports have been published, which were
similar to our case in localization. Dermoid cysts
should be included in the differential diagnosis of
midline cysts.
