Disease relevance of Dermoid Cyst


High impact information on Dermoid Cyst

  • Untreated aging VDR(-/-) mice did not exhibit tumor formation, but did develop a progressive skin phenotype characterized by thickened wrinkled skin, dermoid cysts and long curly nails [6].
  • We found high levels expression of ERV3 env mRNA in human sebaceous glands in normal skin and dermoid cysts of the ovary [7].
  • Posterior fossa dermoid cysts and the Klippel-Feil syndrome [8].
  • Christopher's Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, showed that 37% of the dermoids in the body occurred in the orbital and peri-orbital areas [9].
  • Free keratin and dermoid cyst of the iris [10].
