Abstract

The giant cholesterol cyst (GCC) is a benign lesion that gradually enlarges and causes progressive bone erosion and serious neurologic deficits of the cranial nerves within the temporal bone and jugular foramen. We report here a lesion located behind the petrous bone and describe the diagnostic evaluation, pathology, and surgical management.
