Rationale: Epidermoid cysts are slow-growing, benign tumor which account for less than 1% of all intraspinal tumors and epidermoid cyst with Atypical Hyperplasia is very rare. Surgical resection is the standard treatment of the tumor, but recurrence is not uncommon after incomplete resection. Inappropriate treatment can lead to repeated recurrent. Here, we reported a case of repeated recurrent epidermoid cyst with atypical hyperplasia treated with radiotherapy after surgery. Presenting concerns… 

Case Report: Recurrence of an Extradural Spinal Epidermoid Cyst Following Surgical Excision in a Dog

TLDR
The case report highlights the clinical and MRI features of a recurrent extradural spinal epidermoid cyst treated by subtotal excision in a 4-year-old female spayed boxer with a history of ambulatory paraparesis and proprioceptive ataxia.

Multiple Epidermal Cysts of the Scalp: Dermatosurgical Approach with Favourable Outcome!

TLDR
First-line treatment of epidermal cysts is surgical excision, and it is important to remove the cyst wall to minimise the risk of relapses and recurrence.

Intraspinal dermoid and epidermoid cysts: Long-term outcome and risk factors

TLDR
The gold standard treatment for intraspinal tumors is gross total resection, but the operation needs to protect the remaining nerve function as much as possible and follow-up should be focused on patients with a high risk of poor outcome.

Cerebellopontine Angle Epidermoids: Comparative Results of Microscopic and Endoscopic Excision Using the Retromastoid Approach".

TLDR
Pure endoscopic excision in CPE is feasible, associated with a lesser duration of hospital stay, better extent of excison in selected cases, and it has a comparable cranial nerve morbidity profile albeit with a higher rate of CSF leak.

Development of Multiple Epidermal Inclusion Cysts After Radiofrequency Microtenotomy for Plantar Fasciitis: A Case Report.

TLDR
The purpose of the present case report was to discuss a case of the development of multiple epidermal inclusion cysts of the plantar heel after radiofrequency microtenotomy for treatment of plantar fasciitis, where the patient remained cyst-free.

Lumbar Intramedullary Epidermoid Following Repair of Sacral Myelomeningocele and Tethered Cord: A Case Report With a Review of the Relevant Literature and Operative Nuances

TLDR
A rare case of a lumbar intramedullary and extramedULLary epidermoid occurring at a level higher than the previous surgical site is presented, along with a discussion of the causes of such an occurrence and operative nuances regarding the management of an intramingullary epidersmoid in a pediatric patient.

Surgical Nuances of Intramedullary White Epidermoid Cyst in the Conus Medullaris: A Rare Entity

TLDR
Two rare cases of intramedullary white ECs present at the conus medullaris, which was hyperintense on T1-weighted magnetic resonance imaging and underwent laminectomy with the evacuation of the cyst with electrocoagulation of cyst epithelial lining are reported.

TLDR
Newly identified contrast enhancement strongly indicates malignant change in epidermoid cysts, and Gamma knife radiosurgery may be useful for short-term control of intracranial squamous cell carcinomas.

TLDR
Although radiotherapy is not established in the treatment of epidermoid cysts, it should be considered as an alternative to palliative surgery and in patients who cannot undergo operations.

Malignant squamous degeneration of a cerebellopontine angle epidermoid tumor. Case report.

TLDR
The case of a woman with a cerebellopontine angle epidermoid cyst that degenerated into a squamous cell carcinoma is presented, and the combination of subtotal resection, external-beam radiotherapy, and stereotactic radiosurgery may be useful for local tumor control.

Iatrogenic Intraspinal Epidermoid Cyst

TLDR
The patient progressively showed remarkable neurological recovery after the operation, and the cause of epidermoid cyst is considered iatrogenic concerning history of several times of lumbar puncture as meningitis.

TLDR
A case of an epidermoid tumor in the cerebellopontine angle that transformed into a squamous cell carcinoma in a patient with facial weakness is reported.

TLDR
Although an epidermoid cyst is a benign tumor, it is apt to recur locally following inadequate removal, therefore, complete excision with preservation of neural function is an ideal protocol for intraspinal epiderMoid cysts.

Squamous cell carcinoma developing in an intracranial prepontine epidermoid cyst.

TLDR
A 66-year-old man presented with a state of confusion and died six months after his first admission to hospital, with a well-differentiated epidermoid carcinoma arising from a cystic lesion whose wall was lined by a squamous epithelium with a benign appearance.

TLDR
Although rare, malignant transformation of intracranial epithelial cysts has a poor prognosis and surgery followed by radiotherapy seems to be the best therapeutic modality.

Spinal epidermoid cyst formation after spinal fracture operation: a case report.

TLDR
This is the first case ever reported showing the formation of epidermoid cyst after primary spinal fracture operation, and patients with a history of spinal fractures should be taken into consideration if the low back pain and radiculopathy were refractory.
