Abstract

A 35-year-old lady presented with gradually progressive painless swelling in the left frontal region which was hard anteriorly and soft posteriorly. Computed tomography (CT) showed an osteolytic expansile lesion, enhancing uniformly on contrast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The lesion was excised with a wide margin of healthy bone and on histology it was confirmed to be a meningiothelial meningioma.
