Intracranial squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs) are extremely rare. They can be primary or represent a degeneration of an epidermoid cyst (EC). We report the case of a patient operated, with an endoscopic transnasal approach, for a primary intracranial SCC. The optimal management for patients with primary intracranial SCC or ECs which have undergone malignant degeneration has yet to be identified.
