Retroperitoneal epidermoid cysts are rare. The authors report a case of an 11-year-old boy with an asymptomatic subdiaphragmatic cyst, which was found incidentally during an investigation for hypertension. At laparoscopy, the cyst was densely adherent to the diaphragm, resulting in a pneumothorax during dissection. Nevertheless, the excision and the diaphragmatic repair could be completed laparoscopically without complication. Microscopic examination showed an epidermoid cyst. No similar case has been reported in the literature.
