Abstract

This report presents an extremely rare case of papillary meningioma with prominent flow voids and increased perfusion parameters on MRI in a 28-year-old male presenting with headache. This knowledge helped the neurosurgeon to minimise intra-operative blood loss and achieve a favourable post-surgical outcome.

Contribution: A rare case of papillary meningioma and its differentiating features from typical meningiomas have been discussed considering its implications for management as well as prognostication to reduce morbidity and mortality.
