Abstract

Abstract Round ligament tumors are rare, and when found are typically leiomyomas. Herein is described a case of an epidermoid cyst of the round ligament, previously reported only once in the literature. Epidermoid cysts are similar to dermoid tumors but have only an epidermis-lined structure filled with keratin. Management included laparoscopic removal of the tumor. The patient’s recovery was uneventful.
