Dermoid cysts are uncommon in the neck and the clinical diagnosis is confused with other neck masses. We present a case of dermoid cyst in the submandibular area in a 7 year old boy. The recurrent infections and radiological picture resemble lymphadenitis with abscess formation. The distinction between dermoid cyst and other similar neck masses is important for the correct diagnosis and proper selection of surgical procedure which can save the patient much anxiety and trauma.
