Cranial fasciitis presenting with intracranial mass: a case report.

Author information

We describe a very rare case of cranial fasciitis presenting with intracranial mass in a 3-year-old girl. There was no palpable scalp mass. CT scan and MRI demonstrated an epidural mass adherent to the dura with destruction of the inner table of the skull. The tumor was extirpated completely and the resected specimens were diagnosed as cranial fasciitis. When neurosurgeons, pediatricians and radiologists encounter an epidural tumor in a pediatric patient, cranial fasciitis should be kept in mind.
