Epidermoid cysts over the anterior fontanelle were once regarded as rare and exclusive to blacks. The latest reports in the literature indicate a more widespread incidence. Only a few cases have been described in Europe. The authors report three cases of epidermoid cysts in this location occurring in Spaniards. Clinical, radiological, and surgical features are briefly discussed and pertinent literature is reviewed.
