Anaplastic meningioma

Case contributed by A.Prof Frank Gaillard

Presentation

Adult patient with frontal scalp swelling.

MRI

Selected images from an MRI with contrast demonstrate a very large bifrontal extraaxial mass which has a large dural base and enhances homogeneously. The frontal bone, especially on the left demonstrates abnormal signal with a small amount of extension beneath the scalp. 

The main differential is between a  haemangiopericytoma and a meningioma.  

Case Discussion

 

The mass was resected and histologically proven to be an anaplastic meningioma.
