Developmental cysts of the head and neck are rare, but are the most frequent cause of cystic masses of the head and neck. Of these, thyroglossal duct cysts are the most common, comprising about 70%. Branchial cleft cysts are the next most common, with most other lesions being very rarely encountered. The incidence of dermoid and epidermoid cysts in the head and neck region is 7%. This report describes a case of a dermoid cyst localized in the right lateral aspect of middle third of the face, showing signs of gradual enlargement and progression. Histologically, a diagnosis of epidermoid cyst was made and surgically treated with no evidence of recurrence.
