BACKGROUND: Skull base cholesterol granulomas (SBCGs) are rare lesions that have traditionally been managed via middle fossa or transtemporal approaches. Despite the relative paucity in the literature, the endoscopic endonasal approach may serve as a potential alternative surgical route. In this study, we report our experience with the management of SBCG using this minimally invasive approach.
