Epithelial inclusion cyst of the cecum (EICC) or epidermoid cyst of the cecum is extremely rare. Only seven cases of EICC have been reported in the English literature until now. A case of EICC is being reported in a 25-year-old female who presented with a pelvic mass associated with lower abdominal pain radiating to back. Abdominal contrast-enhanced computed tomography scan showed a well-defined mass juxtaposed to cecum. During operation, a subserosal cystic mass was found adherent to the anterior wall of the cecum and confirmed to be an epithelial inclusion cyst histopathologically. It is being reported due to its extreme rarity.
