DERMOID CYST OF THE NASAL DORSUM

DERMOID CYST OF THE NASAL DORSUM Abstract Recently Luongo1 reported a case of dermoid cyst of the nasal dorsum in a woman, aged 30.

REPORT OF A CASE History.—Patsy A., a full term child, weighed 7½ pounds (3.4 Kg.) at birth. At the time of examination the weight was 22 pounds (10 Kg.). She had not had any illnesses or irregularities. At about 3 months of age, the father, a physician, noted a swelling in the skin exactly in the midline over the nasion.
