Spinal meningiomas located purely in the extradural space are rare, and they may easily be confused with malignant neoplasm. We report an unusual case of a purely extradural spinal meningioma mimcking metestatic neoplasm. A 38-year-old woman had neck pain and left side weakness. MRI scan revealed extradural spinal mass. Preoperative and intraoperative diagnosis was metastatic carcinoma, but permanent diagnosis was extradural meningioma.
Key Words: Extradural meningioma; Metastatic neoplasm
