Gross intra­cra­ni­al hem­or­rhage asso­ciat­ed ­with ­brain ­tumor has ­been report­ed to ­range ­from 3.6-10%. Brain metas­ta­ses and malig­nant gli­o­ma are the ­most fre­quent under­ly­ing pathol­o­gies. Intracranial hem­or­rhage relat­ed to menin­gio­ma is a ­rare con­di­tion. Subarachnoid hem­or­rhage, ­acute sub­du­ral hemat­o­ma, intra­tu­mo­ral and intra­pa­ren­chy­mal hemat­o­mas are the ­most com­mon ­forms of bleed­ing asso­ciat­ed ­with menin­gio­ma. By con­trast, chron­ic sub­du­ral hemat­o­ma (cSDH) and intra­ven­tric­u­lar hem­or­rhage are ­seen ­less fre­quent­ly. The ­authors ­report a ­very ­rare ­case of ­left fron­to-parie­tal con­vex­ity menin­gio­ma asso­ciat­ed ­with bilat­er­al cSDH in a ­patient ­with his­to­ry of ­recent ­minor ­head trau­ma and ­review the lit­er­a­ture on hem­or­rhage asso­ciat­ed ­with menin­gio­mas.
