Epidermal inclusion cysts are uncommon in the breast, but theconsequences can be severe when these cysts occur in the breastparenchyma. Here we report one such case. The patient was 45 years old women with 3*2 cms mobile lump in lower outer quadrant of left breast and another 3*1 cms mobile lump in central quadrant of right breast. Mammography showed well defined oval shaped mass in both the breast suggestive of fibroadenoma of bilateral breast. FNAC was done and showed features of epidermal inclusion cyst in left breast and fibroadenoma of right breast. The excision biopsy confirmed the same diagnosis.
