Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Infected dermoid cyst on a 38 year old man's ear. A dermoid cyst is a sac-like growth present from birth. It occurs when tissues become trapped during fetal development and can contain a variety of different tissues, including bone, tooth and hair, although the skin appears normal. They are most commonly found on the ovaries, face, lower back and skull. This cyst has become red and inflamed due to an infection. The infection is treated with antibiotics and the cyst is surgically removed.
