Lipoma involving brain and spinal cord is a rare tumor that most commonly located in the midsagittal region. This lesion is usually asymptomatic and has been reported incidentally at postmortem examination. Recently, the CT scan establishes the diagnosis of intracranial lipoma on the basis of typical X-ray absorption and location. The authors experienced a case of intracranial lipoma of occipital lobes. The patient was 7 months-old male who had protruding mass on the occipital region after birth. The mass revealed an uncapsulated lipoma with foca cartilage formation. We report this case with brief review of literatures.
Key Words: Intracranial lipoma; CT scanning; Occipital lobe; Skull defect; Cartilage formation
