The authors report a case of pterional meningioma invading the sphenoid bone, orbital roof and lateral orbit, and temporal bone with hyperostosis, which extended into temporal muscle. Extensive removal of orbital, sphenoid and basal skull bone was carried out with total excision of tumor mass in and out of the cranium. Preoperative exophthalmos still remained postoperatively. The mode of extension, result of surgery and CT findings are discussed.
