Abstract

We report the case of a large osteoblastoma arising in the frontal bone of a 20-year-old female. The lesion was first noted after a fall, and grew steadily in size following further head injury during pregnancy. Initial plain radiography demonstrated an area of radiolucency, with subsequent cross-sectional imaging revealing the extent of the lesion. Following successful surgical resection, histological features were suggestive of an aggressive osteoblastoma with aneurysmal bone cyst-like changes. We consider the influence of pregnancy and trauma on osteoblastoma behavior.
