Abstract

Primary Middle Ear Meningioma and Dural/ Ophthalmic Artery Aneurysm

Meningiomas are the second most common brain tumor. Though most are found intracranially, a few exhibit extracranial extension. Even fewer meningiomas are found extracranially without an intracranial component. We present a case of a 50 year old woman diagnosed with meningioma of the middle ear. Concurrent dural and ophthalmic artery aneurysms were also found on imaging.
