Primary cranial vault lymphoma mimicking a meningioma

Neurochirurgia (Stuttg). 1983 Jul;26(4):130-2. doi: 10.1055/s-2008-1053627.


Primary extra-lymph node lymphomas are not uncommon but they often cause difficulty in diagnosis because they mimic other conditions. We present a case of primary lymphoma arising from the skull vault and masquerading clinically and radiologically as a meningioma, the true diagnosis of which was established only after operation.
