Skull vault and scalp lesions are present in every day radiologist,
but in many cases they go unnoticed and when detected generate a great diagnostic dilemma due to non-specificity and unfamiliarity with the findings.
The scalp is composed of five layers: skin; connective tissue; galea aponeurosis; loose connective tissue and periosteum Fig. 1 .
The skull vault can be divided into three layers: outer board,
dipole and inner board.
due to this constitution,
the radiological presentation can be quite varied,
both in terms of topography and image.
With the technological evolution and greater accessibility to the radiological examinations,
the evaluation of these anatomical regions became more frequent and necessary.
