Cranial defects lead to unesthetic appearance and are a constant source of apprehension to the patient. Meningioma with calvarial extension requires the excision of the involved bone for complete excision. Such total excision would leave behind a bony defect which would need reconstruction. Presurgical fabrication of acrylic flap helps in reconstruction of such cranial defect following complete excision in single stage, thereby decreasing the cost and morbidity of surgery. Further, it facilitates the reproduction of the contours, and the tissue bed is not exposed to the heat of polymerization or to the free monomer. The authors report a case of hyperostotic convexity meningioma in a middle-aged female where heat-cured acrylic resin alloplastic implant was prefabricated and used successfully.
