DOI : 10.9775/kvfd.2022.28663 Dermoid sinus is a congenital defect that develops during embryonic development when the skin cannot be completely separated from the ectodermal neural tube. It extends ventrally at different levels under the skin. It has been reported in many different breeds, but is most common in Rhodesian Ridgeback dogs. In this case, the dermoid sinus in the nasal region of a Rhodesian Ridgeback dog was characterized by computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. In this presentation, it is aimed to emphasize the importance of introducing the lesion and race and characterization using advanced imaging techniques in determining the treatment method.
