Introduction: Epidermoid cysts are benign slow-growing lesions that originate from the epidermis. They mostly affect young men and middle-aged adults. They occurmost often on the face, neck and trunk, are atypical in perineal region, extremities, bone and breast.

Clinical Case: Male, 45 years old, with perianal tumor of 3 years of evolution. Discomfort when sanitizing and itching. MRI reports cystic lesion without anal canal involvement. Complete exceresis of the cyst with its capsule. Anatomopathological report: epidermoid cyst. Clinical control without recurrences.

Conclusion: Epidermal cysts in the perianal region are atypical. It is relevant to rule out other pathologies such as abscess, pilonidal cyst to tumor lesions. Complete surgical exceresis without efractions and with its capsule is the rule in order to avoid recurrences.
