Scrotal Epidermal (Epidermoid) Cysts and Idiopathic Scrotal Calcinosis

  • Anthony Hall


Epidermal (epidermoid or infundibular ) cysts are common dermal cysts lined by stratified epithelium, which occur mostly on the face, neck and trunk but are also seen on the scrotum. Idiopathic scrotal calcinosis is a rare disorder of the scrotum characterized by single or multiple calcified nodules in the setting of normal calcium and phosphate metabolism.
