      Abstract

      The computed comographic and clinical findings in 17 patients with fatty intracranial tumors and in 10 patients with epidermoid tumors, all of maldevelopmental origin, are presented. Fat was found in linomas (the most frequent), dermoids, and teratomas. Differentiation between these tumors is discussed on the basis of density, calcification, location and symptomatology.
