A Case of Traumatic Epidermal Cyst Containing Glass Pieces


We report a case of a 40-year-old man with a traumatic epidermal cyst on the lateral malleolus. It was unusual that the cyst contained glass pieces as a foreign body, which did not induce foreign body reaction in both clinical and histopathological aspects. To our best knowledge, this is the first case of an epidermal cyst to manifest as a foreign body cyst containing glass pieces in cystic contents.
