Abstract

FIGUEIREDO, EBERVAL GADELHA et al. Giant osteoblastoma of temporal bone: case report. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 1998, vol.56, n.2, pp. 292-295. ISSN 0004-282X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0004-282X1998000200021.

Benign osteoblastoma is an uncommon bone tumor accounting for approximately 1% of all bone tumors. There are only 35 cases of skull osteoblastoma reported in the literature. We describe the case of a 23 year old male with a giant osteoblastoma of temporal bone submitted to a total removal of the tumor after an effective embolization of all external carotid branches. The authors discuss diagnostic and management aspects of this uncommon skull tumor.

Keywords : osteoblastoma; temporal bone; embolization.
