Penile epidermal cysts are uncommon. We report a pediatric case of epidermal inclusion cyst of the penis after urethroplasty, responsible of the appearance of an urethro-cutaneous fistula. In our opinion, surgical excision of epidermal inclusion cyst after urethroplasty must be performed as quickly as possible to avoid occurrence of postoperative complications.
