Gorham's vanishing bone disease is a rare disorder characterized by massive osteolysis. Its etiology is unknown. We report the case of a 14-year-old girl with an unusually aggressive course and extensive involvement originating within the skull base. To our knowledge this pattern has not been described previously. MR findings are discussed.
