Abstract

Objective

This is a case report of a dermoid cyst located in the infratemporal fossa and its surgical removal using infratemporal fossa type B approach.

Case report

A 15-year-old male was referred from a local clinic after an incidental finding of a mass lesion in the skull base area on computed tomography (CT). Pre-operative magnetic resonance imaging showed a large cystic mass lesion, expanding to the foramen ovale with fat component in the right infratemporal fossa region. The lesion was completely excised using an infratemporal fossa type B approach.

Conclusion

An extremely rare case of dermoid cysts of the infratemporal fossa was managed with infratemporal fossa type B approach without severe complication.
