Several orbital cystic lesions may occur in the childhood. Cystic lesions of the orbit include cysts of the surface epithelium (dermoid and epidermoid cysts), teratomatous cyst (teratoma), neural cysts, mucocele, inflammatory cysts (parasitic cyst), lymphangioma, and rhabdomyosarcoma.

Epidermoid cyst (benign epithelial cyst) of orbit is a rare benign congenital tumor that causes proptosis in newborns. The incidence of simple epithelial cyst is uncertain. This abnormality is characteristically associated with a developmentally normal globe. The epidermoid cyst may exhibit rapid growth after birth, causing severe proptosis and exposure.

A 3-day-old male newborn presented with a severe proptosis of the left eye leading to exposure keratopathy. He underwent debulking of the cyst and biopsy of a tumour and received the pathological diagnosis of epidermoid cyst of orbit. Clinicopathological features of this rare disease are discussed.
