Primary central nervous system vasculitis (PCNSV) is a rare disorder usually presenting with nonspecific complaints. Its incidence is estimated to be 2.4 per million population per year. Very few reported cases have developed into large tumor-like lesions mimicking glioma. It is a diagnosis of exclusion when systemic vasculitis is ruled out. High-dose steroids with or without the combination of cyclophosphamide (CYP) help in remission. Biopsy with histopathology helps in forming a definitive diagnosis. Excision of the mass lesion is required in some cases.
