EPIDERMOID CYST OF CERVIX UTERI

EPIDERMOID CYST OF CERVIX UTERI No instance of a cyst of this nature occurring in the cervix has been found in a survey of the literature or in the standard texts of gynecology. Geller1 reports a number of atypical epithelial growths on the cervix, but they are all either polypoid or solid tumors of possible malignant character. Wharton,2 in 1921, reported several cases of rare tumors of the cervix, including condyloma and granuloma, but none of cystic nature. The origin of the epidermoid cyst reported here may bear an embryologic relation to Meyer's3 "pavement epithelium nodules" found in the uterine mucosa, although he records no cystic development arising from these nodules. The cyst here described is apparently entirely unrelated to the usual type of cyst found in this location, the nabothian or retention cyst, and affords, in my experience, a rare pathologic picture.

Abstract

No instance of a cyst of this nature occurring in the cervix has been found in a survey of the literature or in the standard texts of gynecology. Geller1 reports a number of atypical epithelial growths on the cervix, but they are all either polypoid or solid tumors of possible malignant character. Wharton,2 in 1921, reported several cases of rare tumors of the cervix, including condyloma and granuloma, but none of cystic nature. The origin of the epidermoid cyst reported here may bear an embryologic relation to Meyer's3 "pavement epithelium nodules" found in the uterine mucosa, although he records no cystic development arising from these nodules. The cyst here described is apparently entirely unrelated to the usual type of cyst found in this location, the nabothian or retention cyst, and affords, in my experience, a rare pathologic picture.
