A brain tumor is rarely considered as a differential diagnosis of a transient ischemic attack. However, a 76-year old man presented with frequent attacks of transient dysarthria, right hemiparesis and right hemiparesthesia. A brain MRI showed a carpet-like mass with homogeneous enhancement along the high convexity of the left dura, which was compatible with en plaque meningioma. In this case, the symptoms were thought to be the result of cerebral ischemia, attributed to the hemodynamical change in a tumorous condition.
