Abstract:

An hour-glass-shaped multidensity lesion found by CT in a B-year-old boy who had been admitted to the emergency department after a mild car accident. This lesion turned out to be a congenital dermoid tumour of the right cerebellopontine angle-tentorial notch region containing 12 mature teeth and 14 pseudocarilagenous structures. This is the first case of dermoid tumour containing so many teeth, reported in an asymptomatic person and located off the midline.
