Adjacent calvarial hyperostosis is commonly used to aid in the radiological diagnosis of a meningioma. While occasionally reported in dural non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), adjacent calvarial hyperostosis has not been reported with systemic presentation of Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL). We report the first patient with systemic HL presenting as an extra-axial mass mimicking meningioma with adjacent calvarial hyperostosis confirmed on CT scan and MRI.
