A 61-year-old woman presented an intracranial epidermoid tumor manifesting as dizziness and right facial hypesthesia. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging revealed a well-defined lobulated mass in the right cerebellopontine angle as nearly isointense to the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) on both T1- and T2-weighted images but inhomogeneously hyperintense on fluid-attenuated inversion recovery images. MR imaging performed 1 year later revealed that the tumor had significantly enlarged, and now appeared hyperintense to the CSF on T1- and T2-weighted images. The lesion was confirmed at surgery to be an epidermoid tumor filled with xanthochromic fluid. Histological examination found no evidence of hemorrhage in the resected tumor, so the changes in the MR imaging signal intensity were attributed to changes in the protein concentration of the intratumoral fluid, accumulation of debris, or some other non-hemorrhagic process.
