Almost all meningiomas presenting with intracranial hemorrhage in the literature were admitted with symptoms relating to the hemorrhage and there were no prehemorrhage scans which demonstrated the actual size and apperance of the meningioma. This is a very rare report of a case with a tentorial meningioma documented with pre- and posthemorrhage scans.
