Abstract

Primary pulmonary meningioma is a rare benign tumor usually presenting as a solitary pulmonary nodule or mass. It can be easily misinterpreted as a primary lung tumor or metastases on imaging studies. We present a 54-year-old woman with an incidentally discovered solitary lung nodule, which was diagnosed as metaplastic primary pulmonary meningioma following resection. Metaplastic meningioma is a rare WHO grade 1 meningioma subtype with focal or global mesenchymal differentiation. To the authors' knowledge, primary pulmonary meningioma with mesenchymal differentiation has not been described previously in the English literature.
