Cranial fasciitis with massive intracranial extension.
Childs Nerv Syst. 1995 Apr; 11(4):242-5.CN

Abstract

The case of a 10-month-old boy with cranial fasciitis is described. The patient had a rapidly growing subcutaneous mass in the left frontotemporal region. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging clearly demonstrated a mass in the left temporoparietal bone extending both intra- and extracranially. The tumor seemed to originate from the calvarium, being located between the periosteum and the dura mater. Total resection of the tumor was performed, and the tumor was histologically identified as cranial fasciitis. A brief review of the literature is included that emphasizes the need for further investigation of this benign lesion that is frequently confused with a malignant neoplasm.
