Epidermal Inclusion Cyst is a Sebaceous/ Epidermoid Cyst formed due to trauma or may be congenital. We report a rare case of Epidermal Inclusion Cyst in the Maxillary Sinus in a healthy 27 year old male patient with complaints of swelling in the right Maxillary Sinus region with history of pus discharge from Right Maxillary Vestibular region with foul smell since two months. To our knowledge there is no reported case of Epidermal Inclusion Cyst in Maxillary Sinus. The cyst was removed by enucleation through standard elliptical incision and a regular follow-up of the same has been uneventful till date.
