A 36-year-old man presented with history suggestive of intracranial space occupying lesion. Computed tomography of brain revealed a large lobulated, extra axial, hyperdense lesion in the right fronto-temporal region extending up to to the right frontal and ethmoidal sinuses, eroding the bone, enhancing homogeneously with contrast, which was suggestive of atypical meningioma.
