Giant nonparasitic splenic epidermoid cysts are relatively uncommon. These lesions can lead abdominal pain, but most of then are asymptomatic, and they are discovered incidentally. We report a 13-y old female with a giant splenic epidermoid cystic, given the special interest of diagnostic and therapeutic decision-making of this rare entity. CASE REPORT: A 13-y old female with clinical history of abdominal pain since the last two months. On physical examination a firm, tender mass was palpable in left hypochondrium...

Posttraumatic pseudoaneurysms are extremely rare in pediatric populations. In many cases, pseudoaneurysms may be confused with abscesses, epidermoid cysts, arteriovenous fistula, foreign objects, and ganglion cysts, as well as tumors. They are associated with distinguishing findings of "pulsatile mass, a palpable thrill, and an audible to-and-fro murmur" (1), which can be confirmed by various imaging techniques. In this report, we describe the case of a 4-year-old boy who presented to the pediatric emergency department 3 weeks after falling and subsequently getting cut by glass...

BACKGROUND: Spinal epidermoid cysts are benign tumors, which are rarely seen as an intradural extramedullary spinal cord tumor in the conus medullaris region. Acquired spinal epidermoid cysts are mostly caused by iatrogenic procedures, such as lumbar puncture, and the majority of acquired spinal epidermoid cysts have been reported below the L1 level, because lumbar puncture is usually performed around the iliac crest. Here, we report an extremely rare case of an epidermoid cyst that occurred as an intradural and extramedullary spinal cord tumor attached to the conus medullaris after repetitive epidural anesthesia...

An elderly female patient presented to surgical outpatient clinic with complaint of gradual onset of painless submental and sublingual midline swellings for 6 months of duration. The swellings were noncompressible, nontranslucent, nonpulsatile, and nontender on palpation. Clinical diagnosis was plunging ranula or dermoid cysts. Ultrasound examination of sublingual swelling showed cystic lesion with particulate content. Submental swelling showed cystic swelling with few echogenic floating lobules inside suggesting possibility of epidermoid/dermoid cyst...

The epidermoid cyst is a development cyst, skin, filled with keratin and imprisoned by stratified squamous epithelium similar to skin. They are more frequent in males. Clinically presenting as flabby, prevalent over the face, neck and back. They are usually asymptomatic and its etiology is directly linked to trauma, as well as the imprisonment of epithelial rests during embryonic fusion. This study aims to present a case report of a patient 54 years old, with an epidermal cyst in the face, which was treated surgically...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Epidermoid and dermoid cysts are benign cystic lesions, lined by ectodermal squamous epithelium. They are not common in the head and neck areas, which constitute ~7% of all cases of epidermoid and dermoid cysts. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical characteristics of epidermoid and dermoid cysts that developed around the ear. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: The clinical records were retrospectively reviewed for patients confirmed histologically as idiopathic epidermoid and dermoid cysts of the ear from January 2011 to December 2015...

Epidermoid cysts are rare benign tumors developed by ectodermic inclusions. They are usually located at the level of the pontocerebellar angle, the parasellar region and the temporal fossa. They exceptionally develop at the level of the fourth ventricle We report the case of a 47-year old woman admitted for intracranial hypertension syndrome associated with walking disorders. The diagnosis of fourth ventricle epidermoid cyst was evoked based on diffusion MRI data then confirmed intraoperatively and by histologic examination...

Holmes' tremor is characterized by a combination of rest, postural, and intention tremor. Tremor is predominantly proximal and more severe during posture; however, the tremor frequency is usually <4 Hz on surface electromyography. We report Holmes' tremor in a patient secondary to cerebellopontine angle epidermoid cyst.

METHODS: A case of fourth ventricular epidermoid cyst is presented and a systematic review of five popular databases was performed by independent authors. Stepwise logistic regression was performed to identify clinical predictors of outcomes. RESULTS: A 21-year-old female presented with 3 months of headaches and visual obscurations and was diagnosed with a multi-lobulated mass in the fourth ventricle...

BACKGROUND: Ecchordosis physaliphora (EP) is a benign notochordal remnant, which is usually asymptomatic. Herein, we report a case of symptomatic large EP mimicking an epidermoid cyst. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 44-year-old female presented with right facial dysesthesia. Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a mass with a diameter of 3.2 cm that was hypointense on T1-weighted images (T1WI), hyperintense on T2-weighted images (T2WI), iso-to-hyperintense on diffusion-weighted (DW) images, and hyperintense on apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) map (1...

Oral foregut duplication cysts are extremely rare lesions with approximately 57 cases reported. They are congenital cysts, located in the anterior or ventral tongue, and occur predominantly in males. They are lined by one or more types of epithelia which is limited to gastric, intestinal or respiratory epithelium. The differential diagnosis includes lymphangioma, hemangioma, ranula, epidermoid cyst, teratoma and less likely a malignant process.

The aim of the present study was to evaluate the value of identifying fluid-fluid level via preoperative magnetic resonance (MR) images in differentiating pituitary adenomas from craniopharyngioma, Rathke's cleft cyst (RCC), and other cystic sellar-suprasellar lesions. The data of 293 consecutive patients who underwent surgery for sellar-suprasellar lesions between July 2010 and December 2012 was retrospectively reviewed, and a total of 133 cystic cases were included in the present study. MR images and pathological features of all subjects were examined...

Testicular seminoma is the most common malignant tumor of the testis. It classically manifests as a painless mass. Radiologic evaluation with high-frequency ultrasonography (US) is critical for diagnosis. Seminomas are usually homogeneously hypoechoic masses at US. In challenging cases, magnetic resonance (MR) imaging may help confirm that a mass is intratesticular and provide data for local staging. Computed tomography (CT) provides valuable information for staging, including the presence and size of retroperitoneal lymph nodes...

INTRODUCTION: Epidermoid cyst is a common clinical entity and it can occur anywhere in the body. But its occurrence and huge size in the breast is very rare and more liable to develop complications, including malignant transformation. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We present here an unusual case of a giant epidermoid cyst in the breast, which is about 7cm in greatest dimension. After proper preoperative diagnosis by clinical, imaging and histopathological findings, it was managed by total excision...

Accessory spleens (ASs), ectopic splenic tissue at intrapancreatic and extrapancreatic sites, rarely contain epidermoid cysts. Our aim was to analyze the incidence of epidermoid cysts in ASs and perform an immunohistochemical analysis of its epithelial lining. We included in the study 148 ASs from 135 patients, for which pathological data were available. Eleven were intrapancreatic ASs (IPASs) and 137 were extrapancreatic ASs (EPASs). Six of the eleven (55%) IPASs contained epidermoid cysts, but they were not detected in EPASs...

Xanthogranulomatous orchitis has been reported to be an extremely rare inflammatory change caused by infection and is difficult to distinguish from testicular tumor. We report a 28-year-old man who presented with a lump in his left testis after a blunt testicular trauma. Based on a series of imaging tests, we suspected benign tumor such as epidermoid cyst and performed tumor enucleation (testis-sparing surgery) on the patient. Histopathological findings showed xanthogranulomatous orchitis. It is assumed that xanthogranulomatous orchitis in this case was caused by blunt testicular trauma and this is the first successful case of xanthoglomatous orchitis in salvaging the testis...
