Abstract

A 27-year-old male with left temporal protrusion from childhood presented with complaints of headache, nausea and vomiting. Cranial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed fluid collection measuring 6.00 cm × 7.00 cm × 8.00 cm in left temporal fossa. The diagnosis of epidermoid cyst of brain was made and surgical resection of the tumor was done. Epidermoid cysts of brain grow slowly and are composed of epidermoid cells debris rich in cholesterol. The prophylactic removal of these tumors with goal of preventing recurrence is recommended.
