Although they are exceedingly uncommon in the salivary glands, epidermoid cysts are a very common skin condition. These cysts begin as a traumatic epithelial implantation during prenatal life or as the trapping of epithelial remains that may manifest later in life. Here, we present one of the extremely uncommon occurrences of an epidermoid cyst in a woman who was 25 years old and had it in her left submandibular gland.
