We present the case of squamous cell carcinoma that arose in the lining of an epidermoid cyst that developed within the sublingual gland in a 64-year-old woman. Malignant transformation in epidermoid cysts is rare, particularly in the floor of the mouth. We know of no cases reported of an epidermoid cyst arising within the sublingual gland.
