We report the case of a forty-nine year-old Native American female who presented with two-month history of headaches and unsteady gait. MRI brain showed a 6.5 cm by 5 cm enhancing dural-based mass with leftward midline shift. She was taken to the operating room for gross-total tumor resection. Pathology was supratentorial haemangioblastoma. This is the first known case of a supratentorial dural-based haemangioblastoma in a person of Native American descent. We review the literature and describe the unique characteristics of this tumor.
