A 12-year-old male patient had a well-defined, flesh-colored, elevated, round, firm, pea-size papule on his left scapular area for 4 months. Histopathologic findings revealed that there were several cystic structures with epidermal-like squamous epithelium as their walls and containing laminated horny materials. In addition, many molluscum bodies scattered in the cyst walls and in the laminated horny materials. Diagnosis of "molluscum contagiosum ocurring in epidermal cysts" was made. The lesion was totally excised.
