Epidermoid cysts of the ovary are rare benign, non teratomatous lesions and are usually an incidental finding in hysterectomy specimens (1). They must not be misdiagnosed as mature cystic teratomas of the ovary. Some authors believe that they are monodermal teratomas. Their histogenesis is still uncertain. Some authors believe that these epidermoid cysts arise from the Walthard cell nests, a type of epithelial cell nests. We report here, a case of an epidermoid cyst which was incidentally found in the ovary of a female who was worked up for fibroid uterus.
