Foramen magnum tumors are uncommon. We experienced two cases of foramen magnum tumor. One case was meningioma, the other neurinoma. Metrizamide computerized tomography scanning and pantopaque myelography have been the radiographic test most commonly used to evaluate the foramen magnum. Moth cases underwent suboccipital craniectomy and total laminectomy in C1 & C2 with total removal of tumor mass. Postoperatively, both cases showed improvement without neurological sequelae. Both cases are discussed, and a review of literature is presented.
