Abstract

We report the case of a 4-year, 5-month-old boy, who had unusual multiple meningiomas occurring simultaneously in the intracranial, intraorbital, and spinal spaces. All lesions were surgically excised and histologically proved. This is the youngest patient with multiple meningiomas without history of neurofibromatosis reported in the literature.
