Abstract
Congenital cranial dermal sinus is a depression or an epithelial lined tract that forms a abnormal communication between the scalp and the deeper tissues within the cranial cavity. This is a dysraphic condition resulting from incomplete seperation of cutaneous structures and neuroectoderm in early gestation. The clinical importance of the lesion lies in its associated neurological complications which usually present in early childhood. These complications include symptoms and signs referable to the presence of an mass and those referable to infection, particulary unexplained meningitis. We report a case of congeital dermal sinus.
