Abstract

Jugular foramen meningioma is very rare. Papillary meningioma, the histological aspects and clinical behavior of which are highly malignant, is also very rare. Only 55 cases of jugular foramen meningioma have been reported in the literature. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a jugular foramen papillary meningioma. A 25-year-old woman presented with hoarseness and right hearing disturbance. Neurological examination showed deficits of the right hypoglossal and vagus nerves with palsy. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a mass on the right jugular foramen extending intracranially and extracranially, with weak contrast enhancement. The intracranial tumor was removed via the right lateral suboccipital approach. Histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of papillary meningioma. We report here the first case of jugular foramen papillary meningioma. No completely effective treatment for papillary meningiomas exists at present, with the exception of surgery.
