Epidermal inclusion cysts (EIC) are benign lesions that can be encountered throughout the body, but with a low incidence in the head and neck region. (1.6 to 7%) The various locations in this region where the cyst can arise are sublingual, submental, submandibular and buccal mucosa. EIC present in the tonsils are extremely rare and reported less than 0.01% in published English literature. We report a rare and incidental finding of epidermal inclusion cyst with actinomycetes in tonsil in a 57 year old male who presented with sore throat and difficulty in swallowing.
