A case of two corneal epithelial inclusion cysts affecting the left eye, in a 3 years old female Labrador cross was investigated. The etiopathogenesis of the cysts formation was suspected to be traumatic. The two masses were removed successfully by superficial keratectomy followed by a third eyelid flap. Histologically, both lesions were represented by cystic formations lined by multilayered squamous epithelium, consistent with stromal inclusion of surface corneal epithelium. Recovery was complete and there was no recurrence at three months follow up.
