Epidermoid İnclusion Cysts (EIC) occur as a result of the implantation of the epidermal keratinized squamous epithelial cells and sebaceous glands into the dermis and subcutaneous tissue after trauma and surgical interventions. A 5-year-old boy with a penile EIC who was operated elsewhere at the age of 1 year for an anterior hypospadias with a usage of skin graft covering urethroplasty is presented and discussed with regard to the foregoing literature. In order to avoid psychological and surgical trauma that can be seen after circumcision and hypospadias surgery in children, all the surgical interventions should be performed carefully and during surgical intervention implantation of the epidermis into the dermis and subcutaneous tissue should be avoided.
