A 20 yr old girl presented with neck and occipital pain for 6 wk, which was found to be due to a unicameral bone cyst of the left occipital condylar region. Although there have been very few reports of simple bone cysts in bones other than the long tubular bones, it appears that the present case is probably the first report of such a lesion occurring in the skull.
