Abstract
INTRODUCTION: Meningeal solitary fibrous tumour is a relatively recent pathological entity that has rarely been described in children. With radiological techniques, it cannot be distinguished from meningiomas, and the diagnosis has to be confirmed histologically. CASE REPORT: We discuss the possible histogenesis of this tumour and the need for recognizing this lesion as a separate entity. We report the case of a 12-year-old boy who developed a meningeal solitary fibrous tumour; the main clinical symptoms were progressive headaches for a long period and recent transient hemiparesis. CONCLUSION: This child presents an uneventful evolution without additional therapy 3.5 years after surgery.
