Introduction. Cavernous haemangiomas are benign tumours that rarely affect the skull. A correct suspicion diagnosis is seldom obtained when typical radiological signs are lacking. In this way a definite diagnosis is only obtained after a surgical procedure in most cases. Case report. A 52-year-old female presented a painless, slow-growing tumoration in her right forehead. Skull CT showed an osteolytic lesion located within the right frontal bone. On suspicion of a metastatic origin of the lesion, a sistemic research for a primary tumour was performed without significative findings. Finally, en bloc resection of the lesion was performed followed by cranioplasty. Microscopically, the lesion proved to be a cavernous haemangioma of the frontal bone. Conclusion. Despite their low frequency, cavernous haemangiomas must be included in the differential diagnosis of slow-growing osteolytic lesions located within the skull. The elective treatment of this tumours includes a complete resection by craniectomy, with safe bony margins.

    Brown tumors are rare focal giant cell lesions of the bone caused by primary hyperparathyroidism (HPT). Brown tumor was reported in 1891; it presents as the end-stage findings of HPT. Common involvements are skull and pelvic girdle. We describe a case of 46-year-old female hemodialysis patient,...
