Meningioangiomatosis (MA) is a rare hamartomatous lesion of the cerebral cortex; to date only 18 cases with imaging findings have been reported in the English literature. The origin of MA is probably malformative, with possible association with neurofibromatosis. These lesions frequently cause seizures in young patients. We report two new cases seen at our institution and present their CT and MR findings clearly illustrating MA cortex infiltration. Gd-DTPA used in one of the two cases failed to cause enhancement.
