Abstract A 13-year-old girl presented headache for 5 d upon admission to hospital. An initial CT revealed 3 lesions located in her skull, the sizes of which were 2.5 cm×3.2 cm,1.2 cm×1.0 cm,0.3 cm×0.3 cm, respectively. The largest lesion was resected by surgery and confirmed as eosinophilic granuloma by pathology. After surgery, she took oral indomethacin 25 mg b.i.d for 3 months and tolerated it well. CT scan was performed 3 months and 1 year later, and the results showed that the unresected lesions shrank progressively and the defected bones were regenerated and healed one year later after operation.
