Amyloidomas are focal solitary amyloid masses without systemic involvement that have been observed to occur in various body locations. When presenting intracranially, they pose a challenging diagnostic and therapeutic course given their location and rarity. We report a case of a 62-year-old man with a 4-year history of seizure and headaches. Magnetic resonance imaging was initially inconclusive but revealed an ill-defined right temporal lobe lesion. Biopsy later confirmed a cerebral amyloidoma. We also review the current literature on the pathogenesis, imaging findings, prognosis, and treatment of cerebral amyloidomas.
