Abstract

Because the term 'dermoid' is frequently used in the literature, some authors believe that this term should be used for all congenital cysts of the floor of the mouth. Three subclasses of congenital floor of the mouth cysts are described in the literature: (1) epidermoid (simple) cysts, (2) dermoid (complex) cysts and (3) teratoid (complex) cysts. The teratoid cyst is the least common. Most of these cases present during the second and third decades of life, thus presentation during infancy is extremely rare. Surgical excision is the treatment of choice. We present a 2-month old male who underwent expedient surgical excision for progressive airway compromise secondary to a teratoid cyst of the floor of the mouth. Radiographic and histopathologic evidence, as well as a review of the literature is presented.
