  • Meningioma

    The tumor presented as a dural-based mass with cortical buckling and a thin rim of trapped CSF.[ajnr.org] A 60-year-old immunocompetent woman, followed for more than 10 years for temporal meningioma causing vertigo and mixed hearing loss, presented with cervical lymphadenopathy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Paramedics bring a 26-year-old man to the ED with acute-onset altered mental status.
