The patients presenting with lump in inguinal area are mostly suspected as hernias. Epidermoid cyst commonly presenting in head and neck region rarely may develop from inguinal canal structures. We present here a rare case of epidermoid cyst measuring 7×8 cm as a content of inguinal canal diagnosed by ultrasonography. Surgical excision was done and confirmed as epidermoid cyst by histopathology. We conclude that cutaneous cysts in inguinal area may be a presentation and should be kept in mind for differential diagnosis.
