Epidermoid cysts are slow-growing benign tumors that represent less than 1–2% of all intracranial tumors. They are even rarer in supratentorial intraparenchymal location accounting for 2% of all intracranial epidermoid cysts. We present a rare case of pediatric supratentorial intraparenchymal epidermoid cyst with its variable radiographic features, surgical management, histopathology, and a review of the literature.
