Abstract: Description Congenital extracranial dermoid cyst is a benign tumour most frequently located on the anterior fontanel. It was described in all races. Objective The purpose is to report the epidemiological, the clinical, the radiological and the surgical features with review of the pertinent litterature . Methodology A retrospective study has been conducted from january 1968 to december 2000 about five young patients admited at the neurosurgical unit at Fann university teaching hospital, Dakar. Results The authors report 5 cases with a female-to-male ratio of 4 :1. The dermoid cyst over the anterior fontanel was found in 3 cases and 2 cases in the mid-forehead inferior to the anterior fontanel. The skull roentgenogram was normal in all cases. Sonography was perfomed in admission in 2 cases and showed the cyst with hypo and hyperechoic areas without subdural extension. The post operative course was uneventful and the children were discharged without any neurological deficit. Histological examination confirmed the diagnosis of dermoid cyst in all cases. Conclusion Congenital extracranial dermoid cyst is a benign tumour. The lesion should be treated surgically and radical removal is necessary to prevent recurrence
