Learning objectives: To illustrate computed tomography aspects of intracranial pericallosal lipoma.  

Background: —Intracranial lipomas  are uncommon and rare lesions, they represent only about 0.1% of all intracranial malformations (1)   —Though lipomas, are considered to be tumors, the intracranial ones are thought to be malformations (1)   —The multiplication of lipoma cells is never observed [...]
