Abstract

The malignant transformation of an epidermoid cyst can be discovered at the same time as a pre-existing epidermoid cyst, or during a follow-up examination after an incomplete excision. We describe a rare case of malignant transformation of a cerebello-pontine angle epidermoid cyst which extended into the middle cerebellar peduncle.
