Eosinophilic granuloma of bone is a rare, self limiting disease of uncertain etiology, characterized by single or multiple areas of osteolysis. Skull bones are not and uncommon site of involvement (Liebermann et al. 1969, Upadhyaya and Bheemsen 1968, Hussain et al. 1972, Krishna et al. 1973). Involvement of lungs, gastro-intestinal tract, liver, spleen and lymphnodes besides the skeletal system are also known (Rigler 1966). The disease is commonly observed in children and young adults however, the isolated case observed by us belonged to elderly age group at the time of onset of the disease and had multifocal involvement of skull bones.
