Abstract

Extracranial metastases from meningioma are very rare and among those the lungs are the most common metastatic site. In the literature, pulmonary metastases of meningiomas have been emphasized on their rarity, non-specific imaging findings, and cytologic features. Some definitive MR imaging features of intracranial meningiomas have been described. However, MR imaging findings of the lung metastases of meningiomas have not been investigated with regard to these diagnostic imaging features. In this report, similarities between MR imaging features of primary intracranial meningioma and its rare lung metastases are presented.
