Dr. Rajnish Kalra, Dr. Deepika Jain and Dr. Gurupriya*
Epidermal inclusion cyst (EIC) in the axillary lymph node is an uncommon finding and may be mistaken for malignancy. A 26- year old female presented with lump in the left breast for 1 month. Mammography was suspicious of malignancy. Lumpectomy followed by histopathology showed infiltrating ductal carcinoma. Modified radical mastectomy was performed, no residual tumour was identified. All the lymph nodes isolated showed reactive hyperplasia with no evidence of metastasis. One of the lymph node showed epidermal inclusion cyst.
