Abstract

We report MRI findings in four patients with essential primary cutis verticis gyrata (CVG). The patients were all men, aged 49-81 years (mean 65 years). They had no symptoms related to this rare scalp condition, preceding scalp disease or associated systemic disease. Coronal images showed a characteristic corrugated appearance of the thickened scalp at the vertex, diagnostic of CVG. Neuroradiologists should be aware of this condition.
