Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Herein we describe a rare case of exclusive submental dermoid cyst in the first decade of life. The preoperative ultrasonography (US) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) diagnosis was confirmed by the results of a histopathological examination. US followed by MRI is the gold standard for the non-invasive diagnostic differentiation of dermoid cysts from other submental swellings and submental excision remains the best surgical option.
