Conventional radiographs of the right index show a cystic lesion surrounded by a sclerotic rim in the distal epimetaphysis of the middle phalanx. Thinning and expansion of the cortex and swelling of the surrounding soft tissues are noted. Microscopic examination of the resevted lesion showed an epidermoid type of epithelium with a central thick layer of kerati. No atypical cells were found. These findings as well as the radiological for intraosseous epidermoid cyst.
