  • Look Inside

A case of ossifying fibroma of the cranial vault is described.

Several reports emphasized the rare existence of this lesion limiting in the cranial vault. The patient was a 76-year-old woman who suffered mild headache in the parietal region after a trivial head trauma. Physical and neurological examination were normal. Plain skull X-P revealed irregularly bordered, 4×4 cm sized radiolucent area in the left temporal bone. The bone scintigraphy using 99mTc-MDP showed an abnormal uptake like a doughnut. Levels of serum P, Ca and alkaline phosphatase were within normal range.
