Intradural der­moids ­are ­rare con­gen­i­tal ­tumors rep­re­sent­ing approx­i­mate­ly 0.05% of ­all intra­cra­ni­al ­lesions. These ­benign ­tumors ­have a typ­i­cal appear­ance on CT ­and MR ­due to ­their lip­id com­po­nents. The com­pli­ca­tion ­caused by rup­ture ­are ­the spill­age of ­the fat­ty mate­ri­al ­into ­the cere­bro­spi­nal ­fluid. We ­report a ­case of a rup­tured der­moid ­cyst show­ing ­fat/­fluid lev­els in ­both ­side ven­tri­cles ­and fat­ty mate­ri­al in ­the sub­arach­noid ­space on CT ­and MR-imag­ing ­and ­the fol­low-up ­over ­four ­years ­after incom­plete resec­tion of ­the ­tumor.
