Epidermal inclusion cyst

INTRODUCTION

Digital myxoid cysts are characterized by soft, dome shaped nodules typically found on the proxi­mal nail fold of the fingers and infrequently on toes. The origin of digital myxoid cysts is controversial, with some authors believing them as a synovial cyst from interphalangeal joint space while others believe them to be a degenerative lesion of the fibroblasts. Epidermal inclusion cysts are the most common cutaneous cysts occurring primarily on any hair-bearing areas. However epidermal inclusion cysts in nonfollicular regions, such as the palms or soles, may complicate as a result of penetrating trauma to the skin.

Herein, we report an extremely rare case of con­current occurrence of digital myxoid cyst and epidermal inclusion cyst on the lateral aspect of the great toe. levitra plus
