Seventeen cases of cranio-cerebral erosion were subjected to detailed histopathological study in order to get a better insight into the pathogenesis of this lesion. It was found that the bone and brain at the site and edge of the defect show not only evidence of damage at the time of initial injury, but also of "active" progressive damage months and years later. The possible causes for continuing damage to the brain and bone are discussed.
