ABSTRACT
Epidermoid cysts, or epidermal cysts, are common lesions on the skin. Epidermal cysts may develop due to epithelial implantation of superficial epidermal tissue into dermis or subcutaneous tissue. Primary epidermal cysts of salivary glands are very rare. It is important because it could be easily mistaken for a salivary gland neoplasms in radiological imaging. We present a rare case of a 49-year-old woman presenting with a soft swelling on the left side of the face in the parotid gland.
ÖZET
Epidermoid kist veya diğer adıyla epidermal kist, ciltte sık görülen lezyonlardır. Epidermal kistler yüzeyel epidermal dokunun dermis veya subkütan dokuya implantasyonu sonucu gelişir. Tükürük bezlerinin primer epidermal kistleriyse çok nadir görülür ve radyolojik olarak parotisin kistik maligniteleri ile karışabilmesi nedeni ile ayrıca önemlidir. Yüzün sol tarafında yumuşak bir şişlik ile başvuran 49 yaşındaki kadın olguda saptanan ve nadir görülen parotis epidermoid kist vakasını sunuyoruz.
