A 58-year-old woman with a presumed incidentally discovered meningioma in the left lateral ventricle was treated by superselective embolisation and gamma knife therapy. The diameter of the tumour was 40 mm, and its main feeding artery was the left lateral posterior choroidal artery. This vessel was embolised with microcoils. At 8 months following embolisation, the diameter of the tumour had decreased and was stable. The gamma knife was chosen as an adjuvant therapy for the further control 13 months after embolisation. Embolisation and gamma knife therapy may be an alternative treatment for meningiomas where surgical resection appears difficult.
