The authors report a case of intracranial tumor in a 60 year female, previously asymptomatic presenting with altered sensorium following a road traffic accident. Imaging showed a small left frontotemporal contusion along with a large right frontoparietal extra axial mass lesion suggestive of a meningioma. Patient improved significantly after craniotomy and tumour decompression. Histopathology with immunohistochemical analysis however revealed the presence of a solitary fibrous tumor of meninges. The case is reported in view of its rarity, atypical presentation and need to distinguish from meningiomas which they can mimic radiologically.
