Meningioangiomatosis is a rare congenital hamartomatous malformation of the leptomeninges that can also involve the adjacent cerebral tissue, sometime arising in association with neurofibromatosis. Here we report the case of a 55-year-old man with neuroradiological evidence of meningioangiomatosis, known to be a well-defined malformative-dysplastic lesion, preceding the onset of central nervous system B-cell lymphoma. We describe for the first time this unusual association, highlighting how meningioangiomatosis could accompany different pathologies more frequently than thought.

Abstract

Meningioangiomatosis is a rare congenital hamartomatous malformation of the leptomeninges that can also involve the adjacent cerebral tissue, sometime arising in association with neurofibromatosis. Here we report the case of a 55-year-old man with neuroradiological evidence of meningioangiomatosis, known to be a well-defined malformative-dysplastic lesion, preceding the onset of central nervous system B-cell lymphoma. We describe for the first time this unusual association, highlighting how meningioangiomatosis could accompany different pathologies more frequently than thought.
