They explained the condition was rare but not life-threatening as penile epidermoid
cysts are uncommon.
Dermoid and epidermoid
cysts of the mouth are rare lesions, i.
Various types of cysts can occur in the clitoral region, including atheroma, dermoid cysts, dysontogenetic cysts, and epidermoid
As the name suggests, MEC mainly consists of mucin-producing cells and epidermoid
Orbital cysts (Dermoid, epidermoid
, simple cyst) were also seen in present study sample.
This study included 18 benign testicular diseases, namely seven cases of testicular torsion, three cases of testicular infarction, two cases of traumatic hemorrhagic necrosis, two epidermoid
cysts, two cases of acute mumps orchitis and three undescended testes.
The pathology report indicated epidermoid
cyst (tailgut cyst).
Neuroendocrine tumours have been previously classified by the World Health Organization by tissue of origin; neural or epidermoid
. Tumours of neural origin include paragangliomas and Merkel cell carcinoma of the integument.
This cell type was intermediate between epidermoid
and mucous-producing cells.
An incisional biopsy exhibited fibrous connective tissue stroma with predominance of mucicarmine-positive mucous cells with pale foamy cytoplasm intermixed with intermediate, epidermoid
, clear, and oncocytic cells.
Thus, the initial working diagnosis was infected epidermoid
The most common choristomatous orbital cysts are dermoid followed by epidermoid
cysts in both adult and pediatric populations.
They can be clinically confused with other lesions that can appear in this area such as malignancies and less frequently other benign neoplasms, such as lipomas, papillary hidradenoma, and epidermoid
carcinoma in 64% of the patients (n=26), adeno carcinoma in 28% (n=11), and large cell carcinoma in 8% (n=3) were detected.
