Abstract

We report a case of a 27-year-old man who presented with a clinical history of swelling on the left side of his head. MRI scan showed a left frontal meningioma. The patient underwent a macroscopically complete resection. The histological diagnosis was malignant meningioma. Ten months after the initial diagnosis, multiple distant metastases were detected. Risk factors leading to metastasis in this case are discussed with a review of the literature.
