Abstract

Primary pulmonary meningioma is a very rare tumor and it usually presents as a solitary pulmonary nodule. We report here on a case of primary pulmonary meningioma that was first suspected of being a metastatic lesion from lung cancer, but the correct diagnosis was established after resection. The imaging findings together with a brief literature review are described.
