Lipomatous meningiomas are a very rare form of brain meningiomas whose clinical presentation and treatment and prognosis remain similar, but whose histological appearance finds in addition to meningothelial cells, the adipocyte-like cells' accumulation within the tumor. Computerized tomographic and Magnetic resonance imaging (CT) or (MRI) can visualize the fat accumulations, but the histological investigation makes the diagnosis. In this case report and review of the literature, we discuss how to recognize the symptoms associated with lipomatous meningiomas and the definitive treatment approach for these rare tumors.
