We analyzed the MR findings of five patients with benign intracranial epithelial tumors, commonly called epidermoids. The neoplasms were categorized into two groups on the basis of T1-weighted MR signal intensity (relative to brain): high-signal-intensity masses (short T1) and low-signal-intensity masses (long T1). Surgical specimens were obtained and analyzed by means of 13C MR spectroscopy. Epidermoids with short T1 values (white epidermoids) had a high lipid content comprising mixed… CONTINUE READING
