A case of meningioma with inflammatory reaction within the fourth ventricle in a 37 year-old man is described. The differential diagnosis between inflammatory meningioma, plasma cell granuloma and a possible collision of a meningioma with a plasmacytoma is discussed. The immunohistochemical examination of plasma cell population is emphasized. This is the first case reported of inflammatory meningioma located in the fourth ventricle.
