Introduction: Large posterior vaginal wall inclusion cysts are rarely reported. According to our review, this case is the largest such cyst reported after posterior vaginal repair.

Aim: We present the successful excision of a very large posterior vaginal wall inclusion cyst that developed after posterior vaginal wall repair.

Methods: A 44 year old patient presented with a 7 cm symptomatic posterior vaginal wall cyst 5 years after posterior vaginal wall repair. She underwent aspiration of the cyst twice with recurrence before successful surgical excision.

Results: The patient recovered without complications. Histopathology revealed a benign inclusion cyst.

Conclusions: Although most epidermal inclusion cysts are asymptomatic and can be managed expectantly, cysts that enlarge or become symptomatic should be excised surgically.

Keywords: Cyst fluid, epidermal inclusion cyst, epithelial cyst, posterior vaginal wall repair, vaginal surgery
