In this case report, we present a rare epidermoid cyst in the anterior and posterior left maxillary region extends to the maxillary sinus and infratemporal area with its surgical treatment and postoperative follow-up. A 25-year-old male, showing no systemic pathology, referred to otorhinolaryngology clinic with the complaints of nasal obstruction, abscess formation and pus outflow into the mouth due to oroantral fistula. After radiological and histological examinations, epidermoid cyst was diagnosed. Due to the large extensions of the lesion patient was underwent multiply surgical operations by maxillofacial surgeon, neurosurgeon and otorhinolaryngologist. After surgical operations, patient’s symptoms were relieved. Differential diagnosis should be made with the other lesions for precise diagnosis of epidermoid cyst before surgery. Multidisciplinary evaluation in such cases is important and surgical operations should be performed simultaneously with multidisciplinary approach.
