Abstract: We describe a case of Proteus syndrome in a 34-year-old man who started to notice growths over his left frontal and temporal regions about 15 years ago. An abdominal ultrasound confirmed splenomegaly which was palpable on clinical examination. A skull X-ray showed well-circumscribed lesions over the left frontal bone and at the mastoid processes with a hazy appearance of the matrix, a narrow zone of transition and no periosteal reaction. CT demonstrated hyperostosis of the skull.
