Primary presentation of a central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma is rare. Primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the skull with extra and intracranial extensions without systemic or skeletal manifestations is extremely rare. This type of lesion often causes dilemma in diagnosis as they mimic other conditions. We herein report a case of primary lymphoma of the skull involving the scalp, skull vault, and meninges and invading the brain parenchyma, which mimicked meningioma radiologically as well as intraoperatively.
