Abstract

Meningiomas are the most frequent primary brain tumours and are often managed with surgical excision. We present the case of a young woman with the unusual phenomenon of iatrogenic subcutaneous seeding from an intracranial meningioma. We discuss the risk factors, possible mechanisms and management of this.
