Abstract

A case of meningioangiomatosis is described in a 30-year-old man with a long-standing history of focal seizures. The patient did not have stigmata of neurofibromatosis type II. The lesion was localized in the right temporal lobe. MRI revealed a cortical isointense lesion of the temporal lobe which appeared homogeneously enhanced after gadolinium injection. In addition, axial PD and T2 views showed oedema and nodular calcifications of the surrounding white matter. On histological grounds the lesion was composed of a proliferation of spindle cells which entrapped areas of brain cortex and white matter. These same cells often surrounded blood vessels. The lesion was completely removed at surgery using a transtemporal approach.
