Departments of 1Pediatric Surgery, 2Pediatric Pathology and 3Pediatric Radiology, Hacettepe University Faculty of Medicine, Ankara, Turkey. E-mail: The ileocecal region is an extremely rare location for a dermoid cyst (DC) in children, and as such, it is not considered in the differential diagnosis of cystic masses of the ileocecal region. Herein, the authors present the first childhood case of ileocecal DC, which was treated with laparoscopy-assisted excision. DC should be included in the differential diagnosis for a cystic mass located in the ileocecal region in children. Keywords : dermoid cyst, cecum, mesentery, ileocecal region, ileum.
