Following FGM, epidermoid cysts are mainly seen in the clitoris, labia majora, and labia minora, at various rates according to the type of circumcision (1, 8, 21, 22).
They are partially encapsulated and contain cystic spaces filled with mucin, lined by mucus-secreting, intermediate, and epidermoid cells.
Our findings are consistent with Chinda et al.19 In our study, Dermoid cystic lesions were most frequent benign tumors, comprising of 10% followed by epidermoid cysts (3%), simple cysts (1.8%) and sebaceous cysts (1.8%).
Epidermoid cyst is the most common benign intratesticular neoplasm, accounting for approximately 1%-2% of all resected testicular masses (35, 36).
(10) These embryogenic cell-derived cysts can be classified as epidermoid cysts, dermoid cysts, neurogenic cysts, teratomas, and enteric cysts.

Oncocytic cells were also seen to be intermixed with the cellular elements of mucous, epidermoid, and intermediate cells (Figure 2(a)).
As a result, these masses are often mistaken for sebaceous or epidermoid cysts and are treated as such.
The radiological differential diagnoses included epidermoid cyst and adenoid cystic carcinoma.
Other common benign lesions in the skull base that may present with TN or trigeminal dysfunction include meningioma (Figure 4B) and epidermoid (Figure 4C).
Histologically, the tumor was consistent with a high-grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma, characterized by the presence of epidermoid, intermediate, and mucous-producing cell types.
