A 70-year-old male presented with a plasma cell granuloma extending from the extracranial to the intracranial space. Findings of preoperative magnetic resonance imaging and intraoperative observation indicated that the lesion extended from the temporal muscle to the subarachnoid space, penetrating the frontal bone. The subarachnoid lesion was composed of neutrophils indicating the presence of acute or subacute inflammation. The final diagnosis of the resected tumor was plasma cell granuloma. High levels of antibodies against Epstein-Barr (EB) virus in the cerebrospinal fluid and the immunohistochemical demonstration of EB nuclear antigens in the plasma cell granuloma suggested that EB virus infection was associated with the development of plasma cell granuloma in this patient.
