Background:Epidermal inclusion cysts are uncommon in the breast, and is a rare, benign condition, it can be seen at any location. Epidermal cysts are commonly found on the scalp, face, trunk, neck, and extremities. They are rarely seen in the breast parenchyma. These benign lesions are important in that they may undergo neoplastic differentiation, although very rarely in fewer cases. Epidermoid cysts usually develop as a result of the implantation of superficial epidermal tissue into the dermis or subcutaneous tissue after trauma or surgical procedures, Breast is an uncommon site for EIC, and only few cases have been reported., we report a case of EIC arising from a peri areolar region with coexisting fibroadenoma in a 31-year-old female who presented to the department of surgery with painful swelling.
