Abstract:

Introduction: Primary Intraventricular meningiomas are rare and occur in much younger age group than other the intracranial meningiomas. Calcified intraventricular meningioma in elderly has never been reported before. Case Report: Here we report the unique case of an 82 year-old female who presented for headache and vomiting following a traffic accident. The neurological examination disclosed no abnormalities. The CT scan revealed a calcified Intraventricular meningioma. Conclusion: Since the patient was aged over 70 years and was asymptomatic, the lesion was not removed. Follow-up imaging showed no changes in the tumor.
