Abstract

Dermoid cysts are congenital lesions derived from ectodermal differentiation of multipotential cells. Only 7% of all dermoid cysts occur in the head and neck region and about a quarter of them are seen in the floor of mouth. Dermoids confined to the tongue are rare entities. Only 13 such cases, mostly in infants, have been reported in literature. One such case of an infant with intralingual dermoid and feeding difficulty, relieved following cyst excision, is reported.
