Abstract

Eosinophilic granuloma is a benign disorder usually of children and young adults. Although its identity is still controversial, some authors consider this disease a distinct pathologic entity to be differentiated from Letterer-Siwe and Hand-Schuller-Christian disease. The skeleton is most commonly affected, but occasionally the skin, lung, and gastrointestinal tract are involved. The skull is the most frequent site of bony involvement, and it is occasionally accompanied by a palpable soft-tissue mass. Although the conventional radiographic findings are well documented, the computed tomographic (CT) appearance has not yet been described. We present the CT and ultrasound findings of two patients with eosinophilic granuloma of the skull.
