Hyperostosis frontoparietalis

Dr Dan J Bell and A.Prof Frank Gaillard et al.

Hyperostosis frontoparietalis is a variant of the more common and more well known hyperostosis frontalis interna. As the name suggests, it is merely inner table thickening of not only the frontal bones, but also extending more posteriorly into the parietal bones.

This is a common incidental finding on the CT/MRI brains of elderly women.
