Epidermoid and dermoid cysts represent less than 0.01 % of all the oral cavity cysts. Most often, they are located in the submental region. Most of the patients present with a painless slow growing lump. Imaging is used to know the contents of the lesion and the plane of the swelling, so that a surgical approach can be decided. Here, we present a case of an epidermoid cyst in the neck, which was diagnosed by ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging and confirmed by histopathological examination.
