Epidermoid cysts are developmental benign cysts which are frequently encountered on location like extremities, scalp, face, rarely on locations like external ear. Very few cases of EIC are described in this location and have been reported in literature. The lesion is usually benign but may undergo malignant transformation if left untreated. Therefore timely diagnosis by FNAC is useful and considered necessary for evaluation of such cases. We hereby describe a case of 4 years old child who was referred to cytopathology department for FNAC for the swelling involving upper part of left side of pinna extending to posterior aspect measuring 3.0 x 2.1 cm in size and was non tender. It was diagnosed as EIC on FNAC and subsequently confirmed on HPE. FNAC is found useful tool to diagnose such uncommon lesions found at unusual locations.
