fig3: Histopathological picture confirms the diagnosis of penile epidermal inclusion cyst.

Mentions: Subcoronal circumferential incision with degloving of penile skin was performed. The cyst was incised and revealed 4 different size stones (Figure 1). The inner side of the wall of the cyst proved to be penile skin suggesting the diagnosis of epidermal inclusion cyst (Figure 2). Complete excision of the cyst was done and the opening of the urethra was closed using continuous vicryl 6/0 sutures. A dartos flap was dissected from the ventral aspect of the penis and was sutured as a second layer over the urethra, then penile skin was closed. Catheter was removed after one week and patient had no recurrence of the urethrocutaneous fistula. The histopathological diagnosis was an epidermal inclusion cyst of the penis (Figure 3).
