Abstract

Two cases of prostatic carcinoma metastatic to the cranium that presented with clinical and radiographic features simulating meningioma are described. The literature was reviewed, and 13 similar cases were identified. From the data gathered, we conclude that metastatic prostate cancer should be considered in the differential diagnosis of elderly males who present with characteristic clinical and radiological features of meningioma and that the classical description of meningioma is not specific.
