Abstract

Meningiomas are rare in children and a small number of cases has been published. They are tumors typically indolent, but sometimes they show an extreme aggressive behavior. The gold standard of treatment is surgery with total remove of tumor. If the surgery is not possible to do, the options of treatment are few. We describe a case of an atipical meningioma in a 3 years-old girl.
