Epidermal cysts are benign epithelial cysts occurring within the skin. Epidermal cysts are not uncommonly found in the skin of the breast, but rare in the nipple and subareolar area. There have been only a few radiologic reports. We report a case of a 40-year-old woman with an incidentally discovered epidermal cyst, located in the subareoalr area, and this lesion was radiologically resembled a benign solid mass.
