Iatrogenic implantation of squamous epithelium during middle-ear surgery may cause epidermoid cyst (EC) development. These cysts may arise in different localizations of the head and neck following otological surgery. In this rare case, a giant EC with a size of 56 mm × 30 mm, which appeared in the preauricular area growing in the past 1 year in a 40-year-old male patient who underwent type 1 tympanomastoidectomy due to chronic otitis media without cholesteatoma 8 years ago, was discussed with the literature in terms of clinical findings and differential diagnosis.
