A rare tumour of the prepubertal child, an epidermoid cyst was excised with testicular preservation. Childhood testis tumours are usually benign. Although epidermoid cysts of the testis may have teratomatous component, testicular teratomas are generally benign in the prepubertal child. For these reasons testis sparing surgery seems applicable in childhood epidermoid cysts.
