Congenital inclusion cysts of the subgaleal space in 23 white children are reported. Twenty-two cysts were dermoid and one was epidermoid in nature. The lesions were extracranial and had no intracranial extension. Their location in the subgaleal space was median or paramedian. Their clinical, radiologic, biochemical, and histologic characteristics are detailed and compared with those from Africa. This series counters the motion that such cysts are extremely rare in whites and that the anterior fontanel is their only site of location, as claimed by various authors from Africa.
