Intradiploic epidermoid cysts are congenital benign lesions. They commonly occur intracranially. Intradiploic epidermoid cyst of the calvarium is very rare and few cases have been reported to date. We describe a giant intradiploic epidermoid cyst of the occipital bone with CT and MRI characteristics including DW imaging and ADC values.

    Epidermoid cysts in brain are commonly seen as hypo dense lesions on CT scan, hypo intense on T1W MR imaging with no post contrast enhancement and show marked restricted diffusion on DWI. Rarely they are hyper intense on T1W imaging and referred as white epidermoid. We describe two unique cases...
