A pecu­liar ­type of menin­gio­ma ­with con­spi­cious plas­ma-­cell com­po­nents is ­described. In accor­dance ­with the World Health Organization’s Histological Typing of Tumours of the Central Nervous System, ­this ­rare clin­i­cal ­entity is recent­ly ­designed as lym­pho­plas­ma­cyte ­rich (LPR) menin­gio­ma. This ­type of menin­gio­ma is usu­al­ly accom­pa­nied by prom­i­nent periph­er­al ­blood abnor­mal­ities, ane­mia and/or polic­lo­nal gam­mo­phaty, ­that dis­ap­pear ­after sur­gi­cal remov­al of the ­tumor. Actually, the ori­gin (neo­plas­tic or inflam­ma­to­ry) of ­this ­tumor is ­unclear; its bio­log­i­cal behav­ior and clin­i­cal ­course are anom­a­lous so it is con­sid­ered clos­er to intra­cra­ni­al inflam­ma­to­ry mass­es rath­er ­than typ­i­cal menin­gio­ma. In ­this ­paper, a new ­case of intra­cra­ni­al LPR menin­gio­ma occur­ring in a wom­an, is report­ed and a ­review the lit­er­a­ture is ­made.
