""Dermoid cysts" are a type of teratoma, named from the Greek word "teras" meaning "monster." According to the @MutterMuseum, the term "dermoid" is no longer correct and regarded as obsolete terminology. The appropriate term is now "mature cystic teratomas of the ovary". #TBT (To see more fascinating medical artifacts and anatomical specimens, follow "MutterMuseum" on the Figure 1 app)."

Indian J Pathol Microbiol. 2022 Jan-Mar;65(1):184-186. doi: 10.4103/IJPM.IJPM_1357_20.ABSTRACTMature cystic teratomas are benign unilateral tumors often diagnosed in young females. Carcinoid tumors are slow-growing tumors originating from neuroendocrine cells. A thorough histopathological study of the tumor is mandatory and the surgical treatment is adapted according to the characteristics of the patient. The present case was considered as a primary mucinous carcinoid tumor of the ovary because it was confined to the ovary, had an intact capsule, no vascular invasion, or other suspicious lesions were noted in the abdominal...

While mature cystic teratomas are relatively common ovarian neoplasms typically comprising of multiple embryologic cell types, a specific monodermal subtype involving thyroid tissue, struma ovarii, can rarely be seen. This case reviews typical imaging characteristics with MRI and ultrasound of struma ovarii and details possible complications from these masses with intraoperative and histologic correlation.

Conclusions: Benign renal tumors often occur in specific age groups but may overlap that of Wilms tumor. Proper interpretation of clinical presentation, CT scan, and FNAC findings help in avoiding preoperative chemotherapy. Upfront nephroureterectomy is curative. Histopathological findings decide further treatment. Children with AML and tuberous sclerosis need lifelong follow-up.

In this article, we present a 31-year-old female who presented with intermittent headache and oligomenorrhea of over 10 years’ duration. Imaging revealed a large suprasellar mass with sellar extension. The patient underwent an endoscopic endonasal trans-sphenoidal surgery to resection of the mass. Clinical, radiological, and operative findings from this patient were initially considered to be Rathke’s cleft cyst (RCC). However, postoperative histological examinations revealed a mature cystic teratoma. No radiotherapy was performed after surgery. At the most recent follow-up, approximately 1 year later, the pati...

Ovarian teratomas with an extensive solid component in patients aged more than 40  years should raise the suspicion of malignancy. Such specimens should be thoroughly sampled, and the patient must be followed up for a long period.
