This report describes two cases of epidermoid tumor of the fourth ventricle diagnosed with metrizamide computed tomography. They both presented as a low-density lesion in the region of the fourth ventricle on computed tomography. They did not show any enhancement after intravenous injection of contrast medium and had no hydrocephalus. Metrizamide-enhanced computed tomography demonstrated the irregular fourth-ventricular filling defect characteristic of epidermoid tumors.
