The article cites a case of a 48-year-old man who was diagnosed with ruptured intracranial dermoid. The patient has sudden-onset headache, febrile with tachycardia, neck rigidity and positive Kernig's sign. He also exhibited temporary sensory and motor disturbances. Findings from imaging showed ruptured dermoid with intraventricular and subarachnoid dissemination of its fatty contents.
