Giant Sebaceous Cyst over the Sacrum: A Case Report
Abstract: Epidermal cyst commonly known as sebaceous cyst are cysts lined with true, stratified-Squamous epithelium, derived from hair follicle infundibuli or traumatic inclusion. They can occur anywhere, fixed to skin and usually have a central punctum . It is usually asymptomatic and mostly presents as a slowly growing painless mass. It is most commonly confused with sebaceous cysts and dermoid cyst but histopathological examination provides the final diagnosis. Here we present a large sebaceous cyst over the sacrum. A large sebaceous cyst over the sacrum of this size is rarely reported.
