We present two cases of atypical meningioma WHO grade II with a history of multiple local recurrences and late pulmonary metastases. Comparative cytogenetic analyses on 1p and 22q confirmed clonal origin of the primary intracranial meningiomas and the pulmonary metastases in both cases. These cases illustrate the importance of close neuroradiological follow-up to detect tumor recurrence in patients with atypical meningiomas WHO grade II even with clinically stable disease and should sensitize clinicians to late extracranial metastases of these tumors, especially to the lung. In an effort to elucidate common clinical features of metastatic meningiomas, especially to the lung, the literature was reviewed from 1995 to 2014, identifying a total of 45 published cases.
