An atypical presentation of recurrent temporal lobe meningioma with external auditory canal mass|
Munshi, A.; Dutta, D.; Muzumdar, D. & Jalali, R.
Extracranial spread of recurrent meningiomas involving the middle ear is rare. We present the case of a 59-year-old woman with headache and swelling of scalp over the right temporal region. MRI revealed a lesion in the right temporal lobe suggestive of meningioma. She underwent complete surgical excision of the lesion followed by post-operative radiotherapy. After 1 year, she presented with right-sided otalgia and a middle-ear mass extruding into the external auditory canal. She was re-operated and histopathology was anaplastic meningioma. We are discussing this unusual pattern of recurrence in our patient with a review of literature.
