Abstract

We herein present the case of a 68-year-old male who suffered an episode of hypoglycemic shock 2 years after undergoing total removal of a bifrontal parasagittal malignant meningioma. Imaging studies revealed three giant hypervascular tumors with a cystic portion in the right lobe, but no confirmed preoperative diagnosis could be made. At laparotomy, liver tumors were found in the medial segment of the left lobe as well as in the right lobe, and thus an extended right lobectomy was performed. All the resected tumors were histologically diagnosed as metastatic malignant meningiomas of the liver. Despite subsequent transarterial chemoembolization for a recurrence in the residual liver, the patient died 11 months after surgery. To the best of our knowledge, onlyone other case of a hepatectomy for liver metastases from an intracranial malignant meningioma has been reported in the literature, but there has never been any report of surgical treatment for a metastatic meningeal tumor in the liver associated with hypoglycemia. Although our surgical treatment provided effective palliation, the prognostic significance of a surgical strategy for such patients has yet to be established.
