A 13-year-old female presented with sudden onset of severe headache and altered sensorium. Computed tomography (CT) scan showed a hyperdense midline mass in the posterior fossa. At preoperative diagnosis, the mass was thought to be a hemangioblastoma or pilocytic astrocytoma with bleed. Operative findings and histological examination revealed spontaneous bleed into epidermoid cyst. This uncommon presentation of intracranial epidermoid cyst has prompted us to report the case.
