Abstract

Dermoid cysts are congenital anomalies that arise from trapped pouches of the ectoderm near the normal fold or from the surface ectoderm that has failed to separate from the neural tube. Dermoid cysts of head and neck area are relatively rare, whereas those located in the postauricular area are extremely rare. In Korea, only 3 cases of postauricular dermoid cysts have been reported. In this article, we report a case of postauricular dermoid cyst in a 21 year-old man, along with a review of articles.
