We report MRI findings in four patients with essential primary cutis verticis gyrata (CVG). The patients were all men, aged 49–81 years (mean 65 years). They had no symptoms related to this rare scalp condition, preceding scalp disease or associated systemic disease. Coronal images showed a characteristic corrugated appearance of the thickened scalp at the vertex, diagnostic of CVG. Neuroradiologists should be aware of this condition.
