ABSTRACT

Metastasis to a meningioma is an uncommon phenomenon however reported in the literature. Meningiomas are common primary intracranial tumours which most frequently occur to be a recepient of metastases. A 66-year-old female presented with rapid development of visual acuity and visual field loss in the right eye with ipsilateral oculomotor nerve palsy. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed well-defined tumour intensely enhanced with contrast like a typical skull base meningioma. The neuropathological examination revealed two different morphological fragments of the tumour. In the cell-rich part of the tumour, immunopositivity for CK, chromogranin, and SY were detected. The less cellular portion of the tumour, immunopositivity to epithelial membrane antigen (EMA) and vimentin were detected. To our knowledge, we present the first rare metastasis of neuroendocrine carcinoma to the medial sphenoid meningioma that preceded the clinical symptoms of systemic neuroendocrine carcinoma.
