Abstract

Childhood meningiomas are unusual, and meningiomas in patients less than 1 year of age are exceedingly rare. We report a case of a meningioma with malignant histologic features in a 6-month-old child who has had an excellent postoperative course. The pathologic features in relation to prognosis, as well as the magnetic resonance imaging characteristics of the case are presented. The literature is reviewed and implications for therapeutic management are discussed.
