Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Rhabdoid meningioma is a rare variant of meningioma, often found in tumour recurrences. We report a 55-year-old woman with a history of intraventricular fibroblastic meningioma, who developed headache and tinnitus 5 years after complete resection of the initial tumour. Imaging confirmed a recurrent tumour in the intraventricular location. Histological analysis revealed rhabdoid meningioma. We reviewed the literature and were unable to find any previously reported cases of intraventricular rhabdoid meningioma.
