Abstract

Epidermoid cysts are commonly encountered in clinical practice and while the majority are benign, isolated cases of premalignant and malignant conditions have been identified in their walls. We report four cases of squamous cell carcinoma arising in the walls of epidermoid cysts and review the literature.
