Endoscopic endonasal resection of an epidermoid cyst in the cavernous sinus: A case report and literature review.



Epidermoid cysts of cavernous sinus (CS) are rare congenital neoplasms of the central nervous system. In previous literature reports, the treatment for CS epidermoid cysts was mainly microsurgical resection, and the surgical methods included simple microsurgery and endoscope-assisted microsurgery. The present case report demonstrates the first case of complete resection of a CS epidermoid cyst by a simple endoscopic endonasal transcavernous (EET) approach.
