ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND

Spinal meningioma is a rare tumour arising from the coverings of the spinal cord. It is usually slow-growing, benign tumour. It is the second most common intradural extramedullary spinal tumour, i.e. inside the dural lining but outside the spinal cord. In rare instances, they may be extradural or even intraosseous or paraspinal. Females are more common than males and peak incidence is fourth and fifth decades. We present a case of a 38-year-old female patient who presented to our hospital with weakness of bilateral lower limbs since 2 months associated with tingling and numbness. Plain radiography, magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography was performed which showed classical findings of spinal meningioma. We will be discussing about the radiological findings, which help in diagnosis and is confirmed postoperatively.
