Fibro-osseous lesions of the pediatric skull base are loosely associated group of bony lesions that are all uncommonly occurring clinical entities. Management differs significantly amongst the fibro-osseous lesions but clinical and radiographic presentation can overlap significantly. Fibro-osseous lesions include fibrous dysplasia, ossifying fibroma, osteoma, and aneurysmal bone cyst in addition to even less common lesions such as giant cell tumor of bone and osteosarcoma. In this chapter, the fibro-osseous lesions affecting the pediatric skull base will be reviewed with an emphasis on the clinical, radiographic, and management differences between diagnoses.
