Nasal dermoid cysts are congenital malformations which result from anomalous embryological development. Two cases occurring in siblings are presented. There have been several previous reports that the condition may be familial but in this report the initial suspicion of the milder anomaly in the younger child was raised primarily because of his older brother's history. This further report suggests that the incidence of familial occurrence of this anomaly may be greater than current literature suggests, and the possibility that other family members maybe affected should be remembered by clinicians treating patients with this condition.
