Palmar epidermoid inclusion cyst mimicking Dupuytren’s contracture

Gokce Yildiran, Mustafa Sutcu, Osman Akdag.


Abstract
Epidermoid inclusion cyst in palmar localization is very rare. We present an unusual case of palmar epidermoid inclusion
cyst which causes Dupuytren-like contracture in hand. A 32-year-old male patient was complaining of the traction feeling of
the mass. The mass was excised surgically, it was a hairy nodule like structure and reported as epidermoid inclusion cyst.
Cystic lesions are very common masses. However epidermoid inclusion cysts in the palmar region are important because
they may arise from the eccrine ducts and may be relevant with HPV infections. Thus, HPV screening should also be done
in such a case.

Key words: Palmar fascia’s contracture, Dupuytren’s contracture, epidermoid inclusion cyst
