Abstract


Although meningiomas are common tumors of the central nervous system, primary extracranial meningiomas are extremely rare. These tumors constitute approximately1% of all meningiomas.

Subsequently, the tumor was excised and histopathologic examination confirmed the diagnosis of primary extra cranial meningioma.
