  • Look Inside

We report a rare case of malignant lymphopma of the cranial vault. A 71-year-old woman developed an asympto-matic subcutaneous mass on the scalp. The skin over the lesion was normal and the mass was firm and attached to the skull. Neurological examination revealed no abnormalities. Plain CT scans showed a high-density lesion that was widely attached to the skull and the surface of the skull was slightly irregular. About 25 days later, enhanced showed that the mass was well enhanced and extended into the cranium, and decalcification of the skull adjacent to the lesion had progressed.
