Background: Intracranial osteochondromas are uncommon. The majority of lesions arise from the base of the skull or from bones developed by endochondral ossification. A minority of cases are attached to the falxcerebri in the fronto parietal location. Case Description: We report a case of a giant intracranial osteochondroma in a 24-year-old man. This patient presented with complaints of convulsions and headache. Imaging studies of the brain, gross, and histological features concluded it to be an osteochondroma. Conclusion: This case is reported in view of extreme rarity of the lesion, and to emphasize the fact that complete surgical resection is curative.
