Abstract

Aim. Intradiploic epidermoid cyst is a slow-growing tumor affecting only rarely the cranial bones. Patient. The authors describe a case of intradiploic epidermoid cyst of the cranial vault in which there was a predominantly intracranial extension. Roentgenographic and CT findings do not permit a differential diagnosis. Complete removal of the cyst and its capsule was accomplished, with complete recovery. Conclusion. Total removal oft the tumor and its capsule is associated with a very good long-term prognosis without recurrences.
