Abstract

A case of epidermoid cyst in the cerebello-pontine angle, resulting in trigeminal neuralgia, is presented. There were no abnormal findings in the clinical and radiologic examination except the typical neuralgic pain. The tumor was found incidentally during posterior fossa exploration for neurovascular decom pression of the trigeminal nerve under diagnosis of primary trigeminal neuralgia. The patient was treated with only removal of the tumor.
