Özet

The authors report the case of a giant meningioma in a 5-day-old newborn. Congenital meningiomas are extremely rare. Five newborns with meningiomas have been reported in the literature to date. This is the first case of a newborn with a giant meningioma with supra- and infratentorial and intraorbital components.
