Multiple menin­gio­mas in dif­fer­ent neu­rax­ial com­part­ments are ­quite ­rare. The ­authors ­report two new cas­es of asso­ci­a­tion ­between cra­ni­al and spi­nal menin­gio­mas, one of ­them in a ­patient oper­at­ed ­upon for mul­ti­ple intra­cra­ni­al menin­gio­mas. The ­first ­case was a 60-­year-old wom­an ­with pro­gres­sive par­a­par­e­sis who had ­been oper­at­ed on 13 ­years ear­li­er for mul­ti­ple intra­cra­ni­al menin­gio­mas. A mye­lo-CT ­scan ­showed a ­block of con­trast medi­um at T1-T2; the ­lesion was ­removed via a stan­dard lam­i­nec­to­my. The sec­ond ­patient was a 76-year-old wom­an ­with a 6-­month his­to­ry of spas­tic par­a­par­e­sis. MRI detect­ed an extram­e­dul­lary intra­du­ral ­lesion at T6-T7. A cere­bral MRI, per­formed ­because of the ­onset of sei­zures, ­showed a ­right parie­tal ­lesion. Removal of the tho­rac­ic ­lesion was fol­lowed, 6 ­months lat­er, by remov­al of the cere­bral one. Both ­patients pre­sent­ed a pro­gres­sive improve­ment of the par­a­par­e­sis and ­returned to nor­mal dai­ly activ­ities.
