Spinal dermoid cysts originating intracranial fat drops causing obstructive hydrocephalus: case reports.
Surg Neurol. 1995 May; 43(5):466-9; discussion 469-70.SN

Abstract

The authors report two cases of spinal dermoid cysts whose rupture originated the migration of free fat drops into the ventricles and intracranial subarachnoid spaces. In both cases the fat drops caused obstructive hydrocephalus, which represents a quite exceptional complication. Moreover, one of the cases is unique, since the finding of intracranial fat causing hydrocephalus considerably preceded the discovery of the spinal neoplasm. The authors suggest that the finding of intracranial fat in the absence of a local source makes the search for a intraspinal dermoid or epidermoid tumor mandatory.
