Abstract

The case of a child with a cystic meningioma is reported, along with a review of 25 cases from the literature. Cystic change is more common in infants in the first year of life. Eleven of the 26 cystic tumors were in infants. More than half of the cystic meningiomas in adults are meningotheliomatous, while that is the least common subtype in children. Complete removal of the cyst wall is necessary in the intratumoral type to prevent recurrence.
