Primary lymphoma of the cranial vault

J Neurosurg Sci. 1987 Oct-Dec;31(4):183-6.


An exceptional case of a large intracranial extradural lymphoma arising from the skull and causing intracranial hypertension syndrome, in the absence of other localizations elsewhere in the body is described. Only another similar observation was reported in the literature. The diagnosis of this exceptional localization of lymphomas, which can mimic other intracranial tumors, is discussed on the basis of the computer-tomography findings and the usefulness of the radiotherapy is pointed out.
