Dermoid cysts are cystic lesions which are lined by epithelium with associated adnexal structures in the connective tissue or comprising of tissues of ectoderm, mesoderm and endoderm.[1] They constitute 1.6- 6.9% of all cysts of head and neck and 0.01% of intra-oral cystic lesions.[2],[3] The dominant site of occurrence is the floor of the mouth, predominantly the submental region, very rarely in other sites. Dermoid cysts are usually treated by enucleation.[4],[5] Enucleation of the entire lesion usually leads to a good prognosis. Malignant transformation of the dermoid cyst has been reported in sites other than the oral cavity.[6],[7] This case report documents an implantation dermoid cyst in the left molar region of a female patient.
