Abstract: The coexistence of aneurysms and meningiomas is rare, and encasement of an aneurysm within a meningioma even more so. The co-existence of both lesions is not only a diagnostic challenge but also has important therapeutic implications. We analysed our experience of two such patients, both were incidentally detected with carotico opthalmic segment aneurysm while operating anterior skull base meningioma (Tuberculum Sella and Olfactory grove meningioma). Both patients were successfully treated by surgical clipping in the same sitting. Although a rare occurrence, this case suggests the possibility of asymptomatic ICA aneurysms located within anterior skull base meningiomas, Recognition of this possibility may be prudent to avoid inadvertent vascular complications during meningioma resection.


Key words: Aneurysm, meningioma, Skull base, incidentally.
Summary: The coexistence of aneurysms and meningiomas is rare, and encasement of an aneurysm within a meningioma even more so. The coexistence of both lesions is not only a diagnostic challenge but also has important therapeutic implications. Recognition of this possibility may be prudent in order to avoid inadvertent vascular complications during meningioma resection.References:
