ABSTRACT
Epidermoid cysts are common cystic lesions in the skin, ovaries, and testicles, but their occurrence in the oral cavity is uncommon. They consist of cysts delimited by a fibrous capsule without cutaneous annexes and are lined by stratified squamous epithelium. The differential diagnosis includes ranula, dermoid cysts, and lingual thyroid. Despite their benign presentation, these cysts can cause functional limitations, requiring special clinical attention for extensive lesions located in regions that preserve vital structures. This paper aims to report a case of epidermoid cyst in patient with swallowing and breathing difficulty, highlighting the clinical and surgical planning.

fig1: Clinical aspect of mass in floor of the mouth, asymptomatic. The patient related difficulty breathing and swallowing.

Mentions: A 45-year-old male patient presents with extensive mass in the buccal floor, with limitation in mouth opening and speech associated with dysphagia and dyspnea. The period of evolution of lesion was unknown. The clinical examination revealed an expansive mass, asymptomatic, exophytic, and no history of associated trauma, and fluctuated upon palpation (Figure 1). The lesion surface had normal-appearing overlying mucosa. The clinical diagnosis was ranula, dermoid cyst, or epidermoid cyst.
