Benign fibrous and bony lesions (BFBL) of the skull bones are a homogeneous group of diseases with a similar microscopic picture, characterized by hypercellular fibroblastic stroma, containing various combinations of bone or cement-like tissue and other calcined structures. Some of these diseases are diagnosed only histologically, but most of them require a combined assessment of clinical, microscopic and radiological data. The BFBL group is quite wide and includes reactive, neoplastic, progressive and dysplastic pathological processes, the treatment of which varies depending on the type of the disease. Some of such lesions are unique just for this site of sceleton, while others may occur in other parts of it. This study examined the clinical, microscopic and radiological features of the most common types of BFBL of the skull bones in children, requiring different approaches for their treatment.
