Meningiomas in the clival region are not common. These tumors present some of the most formidable challenges in skull base surgery. Total removal of clival meningoma has carried a significant mortality and morbidity. Several approches and combinations of approaches have been used remove clival meningiomas. Transpetrosal operations have been shown to offer distinct advantages over traditional operations in approaching lesions of the clival area. The authors report a case of a huge clival meningioma that was totally removed using posterior transpetrosal translabyrinthine approach.
