We present what appears to be the first case of an intracranial metastasis from testicular seminoma in an HIV-positive patient. The computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging appearance of the lesion mimicked meningioma or lymphoma. A significant increase in the risk of testicular seminoma has been reported in AIDS patients. Whenever there is lymph-node involvement upon diagnosis of testicular seminoma, intracranial metastases may appear. After surgical removal of an intracranial metastasis from testicular seminoma, radiotherapy should be considered. Chemotherapy is to be included in the treatment of intracranial metastases from testicular seminoma with systemic involvement.
