Abstract

A mass lesion of amyloid involving the central nervous system is a rare finding. A 64-year-old woman presented with a large amyloidoma at the skull base causing neural tissue compression. The only accompanying disease was an asymptomatic renal cyst. The mass had caused destruction of the bone elements and pathological calcification as seen on x-ray films, computerized tomography (CT) scans, and magnetic resonance (MR) images, and was enhanced after injection of contrast medium on both CT scans and MR imaging.
