Cranial fasciitis of childhood

Acta Neuropathol. 1985;66(4):337-9. doi: 10.1007/BF00690967.


A case of the new entity cranial fasciitis of childhood is reported. It should be regarded as a special type of nodular (pseudosarcomatous) fasciitis. It is characterized by its localization to the cranial bone of young children. Knowledge of this apparently malignant, but actually completely benign lesion is equally important to both neurosurgeons and neuropathologists.
