Because of the rich blood supply of the dura and bone, tumors involving these structures are frequently hypervascular. The unique dual function of the dura as the periostium of the inner table of the skull, and as a protective covering for the central nervous system, makes tumors affecting the dura and/or bone of particular interest. Presenting complaints may involve central nervous system manifestations, or, if the lesion grows outward local changes in the bone, muscle or skin.
