dc.description.abstractRATIONALE: Most of the intracranial epidermoid cysts are benign, but malignant lesions are occasionally reported. These lesions appear as squamous cell carcinoma and carry a dismal prognosis. Here, we report a case of a primary intracranial squamous cell carcinoma arising in a cerebellopontine epidermoid cyst. The relevant literatures were also reviewed. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 53-year-old woman presented with dizziness and diplopia 9 months in duration. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed an epidermoid cyst in the left cerebellopontine angle and prepontine region with a focal enhancing lesion on T1-weighted gadolinium-enhanced images. DIAGNOSES: Histopathologic diagnosis revealed squamous cell carcinoma on a background of epidermoid cyst. Imaging studies excluded metastases. INTERVENTIONS: The tumor was removed subtotally through a lateral suboccipital approach. The patient received intensity modulated radiation therapy (6720 cGy total) postoperatively. OUTCOMES: The patient was free from recurrence of the tumor until 3 years after surgery, at which point she was lost to follow-up. The patient died 4 years after the surgery. LESSONS: The epidermoid cyst may occasionally become malignant. Finding an area of enhancement through preoperative magnetic resonance imaging can help to make a correct diagnosis. Based on the review of previous reports, surgical removal followed by radiotherapy shows the best result to treat malignant epidermoid cysts.-
