This report describes a highly unusual case of an 11-month-old infant girl with a congenital subcutaneous nodule of the midsternum that rapidly grew to 7 by 8 cm in size. Imaging studies revealed the cystic nature of the nodule and the absence of deep extensions. The nodule was excised with a conservative technique. Histology demonstrated a dermoid cyst.
