ABSTRACT
OBJECTIVE:
The authors report an analysis of clinical data including incidence, clinical manifestations, diagnostic tools and surgical treatment of neoplasms of scalp and calvarium in adults.
METHODS:
The clinical, radiological, and pathological records of 67 patients who underwent mass excision in scalp or skull at our department during recent five years were reviewed.
RESULTS:
The mean age was 43 years(range 16 to 85 years) and male to female ratio was 42 : 25. There were 62 scalp and five calvarial masses. Among scalp masses, there were 52 tumors, three vascular lesions, three inflammatory lesions and four miscellaneous lesions. The scalp tumors were composed of 44 benign lesions and nine malignant lesions. The most common type of scalp tumor was lipoma, followed by epidermoid and dermoid. The calvarial masses consisted of four osteomas and one eosinophilic granuloma. Surgical excision was carried out in all cases.
CONCLUSION:
Most scalp and calvarial masses are benign lesions, however, surgical excision seemed to be indicated in most cases for diagnosis and treatment.
