Abstract

Abstract Dermoids of the posterior cranial fossa in children are rare. We report the clinical and pathological data on nine children with these lesions. A mean follow-up of 17.3 years after total removal confirms the excellent prognosis irrespective of whether the presenting symptom is meningitis or intracranial hypertension. A brief review of 39 published cases follows.
