Headache; routine assesment.

Patient Data

Age: 32
Gender: Male

Bony expansion, some cortical destruction of right squamous temporal bone, with groundglass matrix, and no soft tissue component.


Groundglass matrix is well seen, and is seen to buckle adjacent cerebral cortex, however no edema.

Case Discussion

Based on fibro-osseous groundglass matrix, and CT/MR morphology, lesion was presumed to be Fibrous Dysplasia. Patient was stable, and thus no intervention was planned.
