Abstract

Objective: To report a rare case of tumour-to-tumour metastasis with differential diagnostic considerations. Methods and results: We report the operation of a Sylvian fissure secretory meningioma in a 48 year-old woman. The tumour was suspicious of a metastasis related to a pulmonary adenocarcinoma operated 4 months before. Histopathology confirmed metastatic adenocarcinoma in a secretory meningioma. Conclusions: Both secretory meningioma and tumour-to-tumour metastasis are rare, and to our knowledge this is the first report of such a rare coincidence. Secretory meningioma can simulate metastases both clinically (extensive oedema, space occupation, carcinoembryonic antigen secretion) and pathologically (secretory inclusions, positivity for cytokeratin 7 and carcinoembryonic antigen and negativity for vimentin), and therefore may cause a special differential diagnostic dilemma.
