Primary intraosseous lytic meningiomas are rare tumors, with only 16 cases described in the literature. We present a case in which CT and MR imaging with contrast agent helped diagnose preoperatively an enlarging skull mass as a primary intraosseous lytic meningioma in a 70-year-old woman. Radiographic findings revealed a lytic mass centered on the coronal suture line that separated and thinned both the outer and inner tables of the frontal bone.
