Abstract

Cranial aneurysmal bone cysts are uncommon. Cranial aneurysmal bone cysts of the occipital bone are exceedingly rare. A 2-year-old toddler with this rare cyst presented with a large space-occupying lesion of the posterior fossa, with cerebellar tonsillar herniation. The patient experienced complete recovery after total excision of the lesion. We review the literature regarding this rare presentation, and discuss the origin, pathogenesis, pathologic features, imaging characteristics, and treatment of cranial aneurysmal bone cysts.
