Epidermoid tumors are rare slow-growing lesions, accounting for 0.3% to 1.8% of all primary intracranial neoplasms [3]. Common locations include the cerebellopontine angle (37%), parasellar region (30%), and more rarely the middle cranial fossa, diploe or spinal canal [3, 5]. Purely intraparenchymal epidermoid tumors are rarely described. The pathogenesis of such a location is still not clear. A 40-year-old man was admitted after a sudden episode of convulsive seizures followed by a prolonged… Expand
