A rare case of ruptured dermoid in the region of corpus callosum and lateral ventricle is reported. The CT scan appearance of multiple fat density lesions in the subarachnoid space along with a non-enhancing cyst with or without calcification is pathognomonic of a ruptured dermoid cyst. Early intervention and excision of the dermoid cyst with washing of subarachnoid space and systemic steroids help to reduce the morbidity and mortality.
