We report a case of recurrent squarnous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the scalp with deep cerebral invasion in a 15-year-old girl. Plain films and CT showed extensive, full thickness, and skull destruction at the vertex. Gadolinium-enhanced MRI revealed neoplastic invasion of the meninges and both cerebral hemisphers down to the lateral ventricle. This case represents an example of (SCC) imitating a primary brain tumor by exhibiting intracranial extension.
