Epidermal cysts

Epidermal cysts (epidermoid cysts, keratinous cysts) are firm, often yellow-brown masses, diagnosed clinically as "sebaceous cysts". However, real sebaceous cysts (steatocystomas) are very rare and most cysts will histologi-cally show a lining with stratified squamous epithelium without pilosebaceous glands. The cysts are filled with strands of keratin. Epidermal cysts can be caused by dermal inclusion of epithelial cells after a microtrauma, but also by occlusion of a pilosebaceous unit. If an epidermal cyst ruptures, keratin will be released between the collagen bundles of the dermis, causing a granulo-matous foreign body reaction.
