A Rare Presentation of a Giant Epidermoid Inclusion Cyst Mimicking Malignancy

Epidermoid inclusion cysts, infundibular cysts, and retention cysts are dense, well-encapsulated benign soft tissue lesions that develop after a portion of the epidermis has become implanted in the dermis on a follicular surface such as the scalp, face, or trunk. However, on acral surfaces such as the palms and soles, these cysts present 5 cm. However, a rare subtype of epidermal cysts known as giant epidermal cysts tends to be much larger.
