Ebner,1 in 1904, was the first to describe cyst formation in the external semilunar cartilage. Since then there have been twelve other cases reported: one by Schmidt,2 six by Riedel,3 one by Eden,4 and four by Ollerenshaw.5 The two cases reported here are apparently the first to be reported from this country.
