Dermoid cysts are common tumors resulting from entrapped ectodermal elements at fetal suture lines. Management is conceptually straightforward, with surgical excision of the mass in its entirety without rupture. The conspicuous location and potential scarring from direct excision can be objectionable, particularly in children. The authors describe 2 cases using a hidden hairline incision and an endoscopic approach to remove dermoid cysts in the nasoglabellar region.
