FANDINO, J.; BERMUDEZ, J.  and  ARAN, E.. Quadrigeminal cistern and calcarine fissure lipoma: case report and review of the literature. Neurocirugía [online]. 2005, vol.16, n.2, pp.173-176. ISSN 1130-1473.

We report the case of a multiple intracranial lipoma in a 47 year-old patient presenting with headache dizziness and cuadrantanopsia. MR imaging revealed the presente of 2 lipomas, one located within the cuadrigeminal cistern and the other in the calcarine fissure. To our knowledge, this combination of this rare lesion has not been yet described. We review the current literature.

Keywords : Multiple Intracranial lipoma; Calcarina fissure; Cuadrigeminal cistern.
