In this paper, we will present a case of a 63-year-old female with bifrontal epidermoid tumor who has gone under bilateral craniotomy. In a case report study, a 63-year-old female with a chief complaint of progressive headache that has been admitted to Department of Neurosurgery was studied. Magnetic resonance imaging was performed for better evaluation. After detection of bifrontal epidermoid cyst, the patient underwent surgery, and following the surgery, a cut of the tumor has been excised, sent for pathology sampling and reviewed for detection of cyst. Microscopic review of the resected part reported normal brain tissue along with sections containing parts of cyst wall covered by squamous epithelium and huge amount of irregularly stratified keratin within its lumen, which clearly emphasizes on diagnosis of a typical epidermoid tumor. Bifrontal epidermoid cyst is rare, and according to our study, the clinical symptoms and patients imaging were consistent with other studies.
