A 23-year-old woman with cranial fasciitis is described. Although cranial fasciitis commonly occurs in childhood, this patient was referred to our hospital for a rapidly growing mass which arose in the temporal scalp within a 2 month period. She had no neurological deficits and magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a ring-enhanced mass attached to the right temporal muscle. Surgical resection was performed and pathological examination revealed cranial fasciitis.
