Introduction: Cutis Verticis Gyrata (CVG) is a rare skin disease, caused by overgrowth of the scalp, cerebriform fashions and wrinkles. CVG can be classified into two forms: primary (essential and non-essential) and secondary. The primary non-essential form is associated with neurological and ophthalmological abnormalities, whereas the primary non-essential form occurs without associated comorbidities. Case report: We report a rare case of primary essential CVG with a history of asymptomatic, normal-colored scalp skin folds located in the parietal-occipital region in a 28-year-old male patient. Major CT clinics include thickened dermis and scalp overgrowth, forming the characteristic folds of the scalp. Conclusion: Not all patients with CVG essential primary surgical intervention, and clinical observation should be adequate for those in stable condition.
