Background: to present a diagnosis and treatment of a rare subcutaneous meningioma.
Methods: case presentation and literature review.
Case presentation. A woman, aged 25 years old presented to our department complaining of a painless lump in the craniocervical region. The lump was from the birthtime. It always was painless, at the beginning soft, but later became thick and caused some discomfort while wearing collar. In childhood the surgical treatment was recommended, but the patient and her parents refused. On examination she was neurologically intact. In the nuchal region at the projection of craniocervical junction there was a 2 cm firm lump, covered with normal skin. MRI study of craniocervical region revealed atlanto-occipital assimilation, Klippel-Feil syndrome (C4-C7 vertebrae) and meningocele having connection with cervical dura mater. The patient was operated and the lump was totally removed. Postoperative period was uneventful. Po
Conclusion. In rare cases meningiomas can be localized subcutaneously. Possibly in this patient it developed from long time standing meningocele.stoperative morphological examination was meningotelial meningioma, WHO I grade.
