Intracranial dermoids may gradually reach an enormous size before the onset of symptoms. Common clinical presentations of intracranial epidermoid include headache and seizures. We present a case of a 35-year female patient with giant middle fossa epidermoid that presented with Holmes' tremor syndrome, and we review the relevant literature. To the best of our knowledge, such a presentation has not previously been described in the literature.
