Giant epidermal inclusion cyst in an unusual site: A case report
Background: Most cases of female external genitalia epidermal inclusion cysts reported were localized to the labia majora and clitoris, with only one previously reported on the labia minora. Here we report a case of giant epidermal inclusion cyst of the labia minora.
Presentation of case: A 31 year old multipara presented with an 8 year history of painless vulvar swelling causing difficulty in walking and marital disharmony. The swelling was located on the right labia minora and measured 8 by 10cm. The histology report of the excised mass revealed vulvar epidermal inclusion cyst. The patient was discharged from the hospital with no complications.
Conclusion: Epidermal inclusion cyst should be considered as one of the differential diagnosis of a giant vulvar tumours and evaluation and diagnosis should be performed promptly.
