Conclusion

There is a wide spectrum of conditions, both benign and malignant, that can present as a head lump in the pediatric population. Radiologists attending a child with a head lump must know the appearance of the most frequent benign lesions affecting the skull in order to avoid further unnecessary diagnostic procedures. Ultrasound (US) is the first-line modality of choice. In some cases, further evaluation with CT or MRI should be done.
