Abstract

We present an unusual case of molluscum contagiosum occurring in epidermal cyst on back of a 5-year-old girl. Histology showed an intradermal cyst containing lamellated horny materials and typical molluscum cells. In Korean literature, 5 such cases were reported. We report an additional case of molluscum occurring in epidermal cyst.
