A German Shepherd Dog presented with recurrent intermandibular and intralingual swelling. Cytological and microbiological findings on fluid aspirated from the mass were consistent with an infected cyst lined by epithelium. The sinus was explored and an epithelium-lined cystic structure was extirpated from the frenulum and body of the tongue. This structure was diagnosed histologically as a dermoid cyst.
