We present two cases of a very rare tumor, intracranial lipoma, diagnosed by computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In one case, the lipoma was in the superior cerebellar cistern, the other was in the periphery of the corpus callosum. In the case in which MRI was used, identification of the lipoma using a routine MRI examination was difficult. These cases are reported now because the incidental diagnosis of intracranial lipoma is likely to increase due to advanced neuroradiological techniques such as CT and MRI.
