Abstract

Meningiomas are benign extra-axial tumors of the central nervous system. Extracranial meningiomas are extremely rare (2%) and can develop as a direct extension from a primary intracranial meningioma or as a true primary extracranial meningioma originating from ectopic arachnoid cells. We report an extremely unusual case of a 61-year-old woman who was diagnosed with pelvic meningioma with the help of PET/CT and PET/CT-guided biopsy. The clinicopathological features of the patient and immunoprofile of the tumor are presented.
