ABSTRACT

Two cases of epithelial inclusion cyst as a late complication of childhood female circumcision in patients aged 39 and 27 years are reported. Symptoms were interference with sexual intercourse and discomfort during sitting. Surgical treatment of the condition is known to be effective with few complications and gave correct aesthetic and functional results. Histology confirmed the diagnosis of epithelial inclusion cyst.
