Abstract

Epidermoid cyst of the breast is a rare, benign cystic lesion, diagnostically challenging, interesting entity that may potentially be malignant as well as associated with complications like rupture. We diagnosed an epidermoid cyst of right breast in a 52-year-old female on fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). We highlight the role of FNAC in diagnosing such rare but benign entities like epidermoid cyst for effective (simple excision) management of the patients. To the best of our knowledge; only 90 cases of epidermoid cyst of breast were reported in the literature till 2016.
