Abstract

A 39-year-old lady with worsening intermittent diplopia and headaches was diagnosed with a WHO Grade I Meningothelial Meningioma with highly unusual perineural spread on imaging, making this the first reported case of this behaviour. Complete surgical resection was deemed too great a risk and the patient remains under observation. The process of perineural spread is not restricted to more aggressive brain tumours.
