  • type of cyst
  • The types of methods used to treat this type of cyst are curettage and bone grafting, aspiration, steroid injections, and bone marrow injections. (wikipedia.org)
  • En-block resection and reconstruction with strut grafting are the most common treatments and procedures that prevent recurrences of this type of cyst. (wikipedia.org)
  • dermoid cysts
  • While all ovarian cysts can range in size from very small to quite large, dermoid cysts are not classified as functional cysts. (wikipedia.org)
  • Dermoid cysts originate from totipotential germ cells (which are present at birth) that differentiate abnormally, developing characteristics of mature dermal cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • Dermoid cysts can appear in young children, often near the lateral aspect of the eyebrow (right part of the right eyebrow or left part of the left eyebrow). (wikipedia.org)
  • If dermoid cysts appear on the medial aspect, the possibility of an encephalocele becomes greater and should be considered among the differential diagnoses. (wikipedia.org)
  • Dermoid cysts develop during pregnancy. (wikipedia.org)
  • They occur when skin cells and things like hair, sweat glands, oil glands or fatty tissue get trapped in the skin as a baby grows in the womb.Dermoid cysts are present at birth (congenital) and are common. (wikipedia.org)
  • Dermoid cysts more often involve the lumbosacral region than the thoracic vertebrae and are extramedullary presenting in the first decade of life. (wikipedia.org)
  • Spinal abnormalities, e.g. intramedullary dermoid cysts may arise more frequently in the lumbosacral region (quite often at the level of the conus medullaris) and may be seen with other congenital anomalies of the spine including posterior spina bifida occulta as identified by the neuroradiological analysis. (wikipedia.org)
  • tumor
  • In those rare cases wherein the dermoid cyst is malignant, a squamous cell carcinoma usually develops in adults, while infants and children usually present with an endodermal sinus tumor. (wikipedia.org)
  • form a cyst
  • This leads to the cerebrospinal fluid that fills the subarachnoid space (the space between the arachnoid layer and the innermost pia mater coverings of the brain and the spinal cord) becoming locked inside the perineurium to form a cyst. (news-medical.net)
  • fluid
  • The fluid-filled abnormal sacs affect the sacral region of the spine, in particular, and are also known as sacral nerve root cysts. (news-medical.net)
  • Therefore, to treat large Tarlov cysts, they are sliced with one or more cuts and the cerebrospinal fluid is drained out. (news-medical.net)
  • Sometimes fluid accumulates inside the follicle, forming a simple (containing only fluid) cyst. (wikipedia.org)
  • excision
  • Sometimes complete excision is not practical if the cyst is in a dumbbell configuration, whereby it extends through a suture line in the skull. (wikipedia.org)
  • bone
  • A bone cyst or geode is a cyst that forms in bone. (wikipedia.org)
  • These cysts typically resolve after skeletal maturity and are not typically associated with bone tumors. (wikipedia.org)
  • Jaffe and Lichtenstein provided a detailed discussion of simple bone cysts in 1942. (wikipedia.org)
  • This type of bone cyst is a condition found in the long bones and jaws. (wikipedia.org)
  • Watchful waiting and activity modifications are the most common nonsurgical treatments that will help resolve and help prevent unicameral bone cysts from occurring and reoccurring. (wikipedia.org)
  • Traumatic Bone Cyst The traumatic bone cyst treatment consists of surgical exploration, curettage of the osseous socket and bony walls, subsequent filling with blood, and intralesional steroid injections. (wikipedia.org)
  • Young athletes can reduce their risk of traumatic bone cyst by wearing protective mouth wear or protective head gear. (wikipedia.org)
  • cause
  • Although the root cause of Tarlov cyst disease is yet to be elucidated, there are a number of studies which suggest that the Tarlov cyst is owing to the dilation of the nerve root covering. (news-medical.net)
