Epidermoid Cyst Newport Beach & Orange County, CA
Epidermoid Cyst Treatment in Orange County
An epidermoid cyst is congenital, rarely acquired, and forms at fetal development during the 3rd to 5th week of pregnancy when normal developmental cells are trapped within the growing brain. This slow-growing cyst can occur in many parts of the brain, but mostly in the cranial base. The cranial base is a highly complex and anatomically challenging region, comprising the base of the cranium, the ventral surface of the brain and brainstem, and the nerves, arteries, and veins entering and exiting the skull.
