SETTING: Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Seoul National University Hospital, Korea. PATIENT(S): A 22-year-old woman with a 5-year history of a slowly growing suprapubic mass, which had begun to bleed intermittently 6 months before presentation. INTERVENTION(S): Complete excision of the suprapubic mass and primary closure of the wound. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): The natural course of the suprapubic dermoid cyst and histologic findings. RESULT(S): The excised suprapubic mass was histologically diagnosed as a dermoid cyst. CONCLUSION(S): Subcutaneous dermoid cysts should be part of the differential diagnosis of suprapubic wall masses.
