Intracranial lipomas, which are in congenital lesions of central nevre system, are seen rarely. They are located mostly in the middle line, especially in corpus callosum. They are generally asymptomatic and are detected in radiological examinations or during autopsy. Headache, epileptic seizure, psychomotor disorders, cranial nerve paralysis are observed. In symptomatic intracranial lipomas, intracranial lipomas rarely show the need for surgical treatment. Surgery should be avoided in the treatment of intracranial lipomas. In addition to cases in which unwanted complications indicating more severe clinical signs developed, fatal cases have also been reported after surgery. For patients with intracranial lipoma, anti-epileptic treatments should be recommended. Here, the case of a patient who applied to our clinic with complaints of syncope and seizures, and who was detected to have a case of intracranial lipoma as a result of the tests are discussed.
