  • Look Inside

We report a rare case of giant skull myofibroma oc-cupying left anterior cranial fossa. A 53-year- old woman presented with left exophthalmos for 2 years. Neurological examination showed left exophthalmos, disturbance of bilateral visual acuity, and bitemporal hemianopsia. A CT scan revealed an ossifing mass at left anterior cranial fossa. On magnetic resonance im-ages, the tumor showed iso-intensity on T 1-weighted image, heterogeneous high intensity on T 2-weighted image, and was heterogeneously well-enhanced afteradministration of Gd-DTPA. The tumor was fed mainly by middle meningeal artery.
