Epidermoid cyst of anterior fontanelle with clear contents

, : Epidermoid cyst of anterior fontanelle with clear contents. Surgical Neurology 68(3): 313-5; Discussion 316

Epidermal inclusion cysts very rarely occur in the midline in the area of the anterior fontanelle. We report the second case of epidermal inclusion cysts in the midline in the area of the anterior fontanelle in world literature of a 7-month female infant who presented with a slow-growing soft mass located in the midline over the vertex of the head. These lesions with clear contents can have all the features of encephalocele on clinical examination, and imaging will show the exact location, but histopathology will confirm the diagnosis.
