Epidermal inclusion cyst of oral cavity is a rare benign cystic lesion. In oral cavity, the most common affected site is floor of mouth but the tonsillar involvement by epidermal inclusion cyst seems to be very rare. Intratonsillar multiple epidermal inclusion cysts (EICs) are even rarer and only handful of case reports are reported in available literature. From the data search over Pubmed, Scopus and Goggle, we haven’t found any case of intratonsillar multiple epidermal EICs from immunocompetent patient in India.
We discussed the role of histopathology in such rare lesions and highlight its rarity in view of clinical suspicious of malignancy. Histopathological diagnosed as multiple epidermoid cysts of right tonsil in a 40-year-old immunocompetent female.
