Case Report. A 61-year-old man with no known history of systemic disease was admitted because of headache, nausea, and vomiting. The headache had started 10 days before admission and was becoming less responsive to analgesics. The physical and neurological examinations were within normal limits. A left parasagittal contrast enhancing mass was detected, first by computed tomography and then by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) (Fig. 1). The diagnosis of meningioma was made. The patient under-went a gross total removal of the mass without entering the dural sinus. No intraoperative complications were recorded. The pathology report was consistent with the preoperative diagnosis of meningioma. The postoperative neurological evaluation revealed a right-sided hemiparesis more prominent in the lower extremity.
