Author information

School of Medicine, Taipei Medical University, Taipei, Taiwan, Republic of China.


We present a case of a 28-year-old woman with a cerebellopontine angle and prepontine cistern epidermoid cyst with unusual signal intensity. She presented with cranial nerve neuropathy and unsteady gait. MR imaging showed a tumor mass with central area of hemorrhage and a focal area of heterogeneous signal intensity with spotty enhancement, which correlated histologically to old blood in a cystic lumen and granulation of a cystic wall, with a large area of hemorrhage and mild vascularity.
