Background: We report a patient with a prepontine chordoma, presented with MRI features of an Epidermoid Cyst (EC) including hypointensity on T1-weighted image, hyperintensity on T2- weighted image, hyperintensity on DWI, and no contrast enhancement. We also presented a concise review of the relevant clinical data, since such cases were rarely reported in the English medical literature.
