Abstract

A significant improvement of hyperinsulinemic diabetes was observed in a patient with Werner's syndrome after the removal of a large parasagittal meningioma. To our knowledge this is the second case reported in the literature. The possible relationship between meningioma and diabetes in Werner's syndrome is discussed.
