Giant intradiploic epidermoid cysts of the skull. Report of two cases.


The authors describe two cases of giant intradiploic epidermoid cysts of the cranial vault in which there was massive intracranial extension causing signs of neurological involvement. The very slow growth and the benign histological nature of these tumors explain their long preoperative evolution and the mild neurological signs in some cases. Roentgenographic and computerized tomography findings permit a correct diagnosis. Complete removal of these cysts and their capsules can be easily accomplished, despite their large size. Total removal of these cysts is associated with a very good long-term prognosis.
