The long term surgical results in a series of 17 epidermoids of the cerebello-pontine angle are reported. In 11 cases the capsule was removed subtotally and in 6 totally. The absence of mortality among the patients who underwent subtotal removal and the onset of recurrences, if any, only long after the first operation, justify subtotal removal when tight capsular adhesions are present.
