Abstract

Intracranial epidermoid cysts are relatively rare congenital inclusion cysts. They are the third most common cerebellopontine angle cistern mass after vestibular schwannoma and meningioma. White epidermoid is a rare variant. We present the first case, to our knowledge, of a white epidermoid cyst anterior to the pontomedullary junction, emphasising its imaging appearance, location and the importance of pre-operative diagnosis, which may reduce operative complications.
