Radiol Case Rep. 2023 May 3;18(7):2401-2406. doi: 10.1016/j.radcr.2023.04.012. eCollection 2023 Jul.


Meningioma morphology is diverse. Although unlisted in the WHO classification, sclerosing meningioma is a rare variation featuring an extremely low signal intensity on MRI T2-weighted imaging. About 50 cases of sclerosing meningiomas, including spinal tumors, have been reported; however, cases with an accompanying large peritumoral cyst remain unreported. Here, we first report a rare case of sclerosing meningioma with a large peritumoral cyst and review relevant literature.

Keywords: Cystic meningioma; Fibrous tumor; Hypovascular tumor; Low intensity on T2; Meningioma variant; Very low intensity.
