Meningiomas in early infancy are rare lesions, worth to be reported for their exceptional occurrence. The authors report a case of an 11-month-old female child with asymmetric macrocephaly due to the presence of a cystic atypical meningioma associated to bilateral subdural collections. CONCLUSION: This unusual and unique case of atypical cystic meningioma in early infancy showed a high positivity to immunostaining of aquaporin 1, and this pattern could correlate with the coexistence both of cysts and subdural collections.

Abstract

Meningiomas in early infancy are rare lesions, worth to be reported for their exceptional occurrence. The authors report a case of an 11-month-old female child with asymmetric macrocephaly due to the presence of a cystic atypical meningioma associated to bilateral subdural collections. CONCLUSION: This unusual and unique case of atypical cystic meningioma in early infancy showed a high positivity to immunostaining of aquaporin 1, and this pattern could correlate with the coexistence both of cysts and subdural collections.
