Epidermal cysts are a subset of epithelial inclusion cysts, which are common benign skin lesions. In general, they are usually located on the face, neck, or trunk. However, they may form on any part of the body and occasionally occur in the perianal area. These lesions tend to grow over time and in rare cases can become infected. Total excision is the preferred method of treatment. Definitive diagnosis is made only by histopathological examination. The differential diagnosis of perianal cyst should include hemorrhoids, tailgut cysts, anal canal cysts, retrorectal/presacral cysts, teratomas, and dermoid cysts. Here, we present a rare case of very large perianal epidermal cyst in a male patient who received medical treatment for a diagnosis of hemorrhoids and underwent surgical excision when his symptoms did not improve.

Keywords: Epidermal cyst, surgery, perianal involvement

Epidermal kistler, yaygın benign deri lezyonları olan epitel inklüzyon kistlerinin bir alt grubudur. Genellikle yüz, boyun veya gövdede bulunurlar, ancak vücudun herhangi bir yerinde yerleşebilirler ve perianal bölgede nadiren görülürler. Zamanla büyüme eğiliminde olan bu lezyonlar nadiren enfekte olurlar. Total eksizyon tercih edilen tedavi yöntemidir. Kesin tanı sadece histopatolojik inceleme ile konulur. Perianal kistin ayırıcı tanısında hemoroid, tailgut kistleri, anal kanal kistleri, retrorektal/presakral kistler, teratomlar ve dermoid kistler düşünülmelidir. Burada, hemoroid teşhisi konarak medikal tedavi altına alınmış ve şikayetlerin geçmemesi üzerine cerrahi eksizyon ile tedavi edilmiş nadir karşılaşılan ve büyük boyutlara ulaşmış perianal yerleşimli epidermal kist olgusu sunulmaktadır.
