Abstract

We are reporting a case of manic depressive illness in a patient with a falxial chondroma in the right parietal region. Neurological symptoms were absent except for right hemicranial headache and examination was normal, prior to the presentation with mania. The mania responded to psychotropics. Subsequent evaluation with a head CT scan using contrast enhancement showed a 2.5 x 2 cm high density mass which on craniotomy and biopsy was noted to be a chondroma. For two years following removal, the patient remained euthymic without medication. To our knowledge, this is the fourth reported case of a chondroma in the parietal region and the first case of secondary mania associated with such a tumor.
