Primary bone lymphomas rarely occur in cranial vault. Excision is an effective treatment for primary cranial vault lymphoma (PCVL). Due to the tumors may originate in bone, the advisable management of autologous skull flap are needed. Although many methods are widely used to inactivate bone tumors, there is no standard to deal with the autologous skull flap of PCVL. We report two patients of PCVL who received total resection and tentative management of autologous skull flaps (microwave inactivation and titanium mesh repair). The outcomes of the two cases suggest that entirely remove the tumor tissues may effectively delay the recurrence.
