Although meningioma is a common and benign intracranial tumor, meningioma en plaque is a rare tumor, especially in the cranial vault. Meningioma en plaque(MEP) usually occurs in the area of the sphenoid wing, and it causes cosmetic and visual problems, as well as the problems that are due to its mass effect. The authors present here a case of convexity meningioma en plaque that involved the skull and scalp with diffuse hyperostosis as the presenting salient radiological findings, which caused marked intraoperative bleeding.
