Sebaceous cysts are common skin cysts that can pop up really anywhere on the body but are more frequently seen on the head, back of the ears, neck, and trunk. In addition, some genetic disorders like Gardner's syndrome may predispose a person to develop sebaceous cysts. In fact, the true name for sebaceous cyst is an epidermoid cyst, although many people, even health care professionals, still erroneously use the term sebaceous cyst.
Vulvar inclusion cysts contain epithelial tissue; vulvar epidermal cysts develop from sebaceous glands. Both cysts eventually enlarge with cellular debris and sometimes become infected. Inclusion cysts are the most common vulvar cysts; they may also occur in the vagina.
Vaginal cysts are uncommon benign cysts that develop in the vaginal wall. It develops within vaginal tissue present at the site of an episiotomy or other vaginal surgical sites. Often, they are found by the women herself and as an incidental finding during a routine pelvic examination.
Epidermoid cysts, also called sebaceous, keratin, or epithelial cysts, are small, hard lumps that develop under the skin. These cysts are common. They grow slowly. They do not cause other symptoms and are nearly never cancerous.
Pathological findings were correlated with the clinical records of the patients and histochemistry results. There were 12 cases of mullerian cysts Patient age ranged from 20 to 75 years with a mean of 35 years, and a peak incidence between years 13 cases,
Epidermoid cysts can occur in a variety of locations including face, trunk, neck, extremities and scalp. Up to now, those vulvar epidermal cysts reported in the literature were localized on the labia majora and the clitoris. This is the first case of epidermal cyst reported on the labia minora.
Background: Epidermoid cysts, one of the common benign intradermal or subcutaneous tumors commonly result from the trauma to the pilosebaceous unit in the hair bearing area. In areas without hair, these cysts are considered implantation and proliferation of squamous epithelium into the dermis due to injury. Aims: The aim is to evaluate the clinicopathological details with emphasis on unusual findings related to epidermoid cysts.
Cysts that develop on the vulva include inclusion cysts and epidermal cysts. Vulvar inclusion cysts are small sacs that contain tissue from the surface of the vulva. Vulvar epidermal cysts are similar but contain secretions from oil-producing sebaceous glands near hair follicles.
