Epidermoid cysts are benign slow-growing congenital lesions, constituting approximately 1% of all cranial tumors. Most of these lesions are located intradurally, while about 10-25% of them are located within the diploic spaces. Intradiploic epidermoid cysts are usually discovered incidentally and may remain asymptomatic for many years, but in rare instances, they may grow intracranially and produce brain compression. Sometimes, intradiploic epidermoid cysts may occlude the main cranial venous sinuses causing intracranial hypertension.

Abstract

Epidermoid cysts are benign slow-growing congenital lesions, constituting approximately 1% of all cranial tumors. Most of these lesions are located intradurally, while about 10-25% of them are located within the diploic spaces. Intradiploic epidermoid cysts are usually discovered incidentally and may remain asymptomatic for many years, but in rare instances, they may grow intracranially and produce brain compression. Sometimes, intradiploic epidermoid cysts may occlude the main cranial venous sinuses causing intracranial hypertension.
