We read with great interest the excellent article by Rajesh and Charumathi[1] and congratulate the authors on the management of this case. The authors have mentioned that full excision of an intact capsule is the only cure for dermoid cysts.

Herein, we like to state that there are many minimally invasive procedures too for the treatment of dermoid cyst in the eyelid region. Intralesional injection of sodium tetradecyl sulfate (sclerosing agent) alone[2] or in combination with radiofrequency coblation[3] are also commonly used treatment modalities.
