A case of epidermoid cyst of the testis in Gardner's syndrome is reported. This is the first instance of epidermoid cyst occuring in a parenchymatous organ in Gardner's syndrome. The soft tissue tumors of extra-colonic sites are of diagnostic importance, as often these antedate recognition or appearance of the colonic polyps which form a premalignant lesion.
