An epidermal cyst is the most common cyst in the skin and slowly growing intradermal or subcutaneous tumor. Epidermal cysts occur most commonly on the face, scalp, neck and trunk. These lesions occur infrequently on the palms and post-trauma. Traumatic epidermal cysts occur often on exposed sites such as the palms, fingers and soles. These cysts were reported more frequently on the palms than soles. We report a case of a 61-year-old man with a epidermal cyst on the finger post-trauma.
