The treat­ment of seri­ous cra­ni­al ­defects has ­always ­been a fas­ci­nat­ing and con­tro­ver­sial ­issue for cra­ni­o­fa­cial sur­geons and in the ­last ­years ­many solu­tions ­have ­been pro­posed. One of the ­most effec­tive meth­od is a per­son­al­ized tita­ni­um ­plaque pre­pared by pro­cess­ing ana­tom­i­cal ­data ­obtained ­with a CAT of the ­patient. A ­case of ­wide cra­ni­al ­defect on the ­left fron­to-parie­tal ­region in a 56-­year-old man treat­ed ­with a per­son­al­ized tita­ni­um ­plaque ­obtained by pro­cess­ing the ­data of a spi­ral CAT of the ­skull is ­described. No com­pli­ca­tions ­were ­observed in the post­op­er­a­tive ­course and fol­low-up ­after 6 ­moths ­showed ­that the ­patient was in ­good gen­er­al con­di­tion.
