Congenital dermoid inclusion cysts located in the anterior fontanelle were defined as Adeloye-Odeku Disease by Adeloye and Odeku in 1971. The epidemiological characteristics of this rare disease are still unclear. These cysts are subgaleal benign lesions, and the main treatment is surgical excision. Radiological imaging is important in diagnosis and surgical planning due to their location. Although adult cases have been reported in the literature, Adeloye-Odeku Disease is primarily a subject of pediatric neurosurgery. In this study, we present a 10-month-old case of an anterior fontanel dermoid cyst and conduct the first national review of the disease with 9 cases reported from our country.
