Dermoid cysts can be found anywhere in the body, particularly in areas where embryonic elements fuse together. Dermoid cysts arising in the head and neck lesion are relatively common, but that of nasolabial area has not been reported. Recently, we experienced a case of epidermoid cyst mimicking nasolabial cyst. The patient was a 49 year-old man with an anterior nasolabial swelling that has been presented for 1 year. After cyst excision, a histologic examination revealed that it was an epidermoid cyst. We report this case with the literature review.
