Summary of "Ovarian dermoid cyst presenting with unusual complaint of hair coming out of the anal orifice - A case report."

Dermoid cyst of the ovary is a common benign condition. It is usually asymptomatic but can present with pain, mass, hormone related symptoms or paraneoplastic syndrome. Hair is a common morphological component of the dermoid cyst; however, it rarely manifests as a presenting complain. We report a case, who presented with the complaints of hair coming out through her anal orifice for a year. Ultrasound and computed tomography scan revealed a dermoid cyst of the right ovary adherent to the rectum. Surgical removal showed hair coming out of the cyst. Primary repair of the defect in rectal wall was performed which resulted in resolution of the symptoms.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A tumor consisting of displaced ectodermal structures along the lines of embryonic fusion, the wall being formed of epithelium-lined connective tissue, including skin appendages, and containing keratin, sebum, and hair. (Stedman, 25th ed)

Cyst occurring in a persistent portion of the urachus, presenting as an extraperitoneal mass in the umbilical region. It is characterized by abdominal pain, and fever if infected. It may rupture, leading to peritonitis, or it may drain through the umbilicus.

A true cyst of the PANCREAS, distinguished from the much more common PANCREATIC PSEUDOCYST by possessing a lining of mucous EPITHELIUM. Pancreatic cysts are categorized as congenital, retention, neoplastic, parasitic, enterogenous, or dermoid. Congenital cysts occur more frequently as solitary cysts but may be multiple. Retention cysts are gross enlargements of PANCREATIC DUCTS secondary to ductal obstruction. (From Bockus Gastroenterology, 4th ed, p4145)

A form of retention cyst of the floor of the mouth, usually due to obstruction of the ducts of the submaxillary or sublingual glands, presenting a slowly enlarging painless deep burrowing mucocele of one side of the mouth. It is also called sublingual cyst and sublingual ptyalocele.

Cysts formed from epithelial inclusions in the lines of fusion of the embryonic processes which form the jaws. They include nasopalatine or incisive canal cyst, incisive papilla cyst, globulomaxillary cyst, median palatal cyst, median alveolar cyst, median mandibular cyst, and nasoalveolar cyst.
