: Cutaneous ciliated cysts (CCC) are rare benign cysts known to occur in the lower extremities of females of reproductive age. Currently, there are 2 theories that attempt to explain the histogenesis of this rare entity. The theory of Mullerian heterotopia provides a plausible histogenetic explanation for the vast majority of CCC. A proposed alternative theory is the ciliated metaplasia of eccrine glands. We believe that previously reported cases of CCC include 2 distinct entities. We report, herein, the first case reported in the literature of a cutaneous ciliated eccrine cyst occurring on the scalp.
