Dural metastasis from medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) is not well established in English literature. We present the case report of MTC with unusual clinical presentation as a dural-based mass in a 39-year-old male with no family history of multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome. Magnetic resonance imaging showed an extra-axial dural-based mass in right frontal lobe with calvarium and soft tissue extension to the right superior orbit. Histopathology showed MTC with variegated morphology and various patterns. Thyroid mass and widespread metastases from medullary thyroid carcinoma were subsequently identified.
