SANZ, Lorena; GAMBOA, Francisco J.  and  RIVERA, Teresa. Epidermoid cysts of the floor of the mouth: presentation of two cases and review of the literature. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2010, vol.32, n.3, pp.115-118. ISSN 2173-9161.

Epidermoid cysts are a frequent pathology; nevertheless their location in the oral cavity is exceptional. Their size and anatomical location are determining factors in the surgical approach. We present two cases diagnosed in our ENT Department between 1999 and 2007, which were referred to us due to slow growing masses on the floor of the mouth. A literature review was made on the diagnosis, surgical techniques and management of epidermoid cysts in an attempt to standardise their management.

Keywords : Epidermoid cyst; Floor of the mouth; Slow-growing mass; Surgical technique.
