Abstract

OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE: A rare case of dura-based primary cerebral Hodgkin's disease clinically and radiographically indistinguishable from a meningioma is described. CLINICAL PRESENTATION: A 55-year-old immunocompetent woman presented with headaches and ataxia. Magnetic resonance images demonstrated a circumscribed diffusely enhancing mass with a dural tail attached to the cerebellar tentorium. INTERVENTION: Operation inspection also suggested a meningioma, but a frozen section of the firm mass revealed an inflammatory lesion. Subsequent pathological analysis demonstrated Hodgkin's disease, nodular sclerosing type. An extensive workup revealed no systemic disease. CONCLUSION: This case illustrates the rare occurrence of primary intracranial Hodgkin's disease and its mimicry of meningioma.
