Bottom Line: Epidermoid cysts are common cystic lesions in the skin, ovaries, and testicles, but their occurrence in the oral cavity is uncommon.The differential diagnosis includes ranula, dermoid cysts, and lingual thyroid.This paper aims to report a case of epidermoid cyst in patient with swallowing and breathing difficulty, highlighting the clinical and surgical planning.

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.

Mentions: In this case for safe surgical approach,was observed the depth of the lesion in the submandibular space. Also it became evident that the lumen of the lesion is of low density, assisting in the appropriate development of a clinical diagnostic. Expansion of the lesion was confirmed with a reduction of nasopharynx space, observed in CT images (Figure 2).
