Osteoradionecrosis of the skull appears to be an increasingly rare complication following irradiation for intracranial neoplasms, probably in part due to the use of high energy techniques rather than orthovoltage during recent years. An awareness of the usual asymptomatic nature and possible late discovery of these lesions aids in the correct roentgenographic diagnosis. Among several differential diagnoses which are discussed, osteomyelitis and metastatic neoplasms are generally the most important considerations.
