Abstract

A 44-year-old man presented to the hospital with multiple intracranial epidermoid cysts. The clinical manifestations of his disease included chronic headaches and one seizurelike episode. Findings determined by magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, surgery, and histological analysis indicated intrathecal and intraventricular seeding of the cysts. Spontaneous (nontraumatic) seeding of multiple daughter cysts from intracranial epidermoid cysts is still very rare and their multiple appearances on MR imaging should be distinguished from the simple scattering of oily contents due to cyst rupture.
