Introduction Meningiomas are the most common benign intracranial neoplasms. Extracranial metastasis from benign meningiomas is exceedingly rare and is seen in less than 0.1% to 0.2% of cases. Lungs (60%) and liver (34%) are the most common sites of extracranial metastasis. We describe a patient with delayed hepatic metastasis of a benign fibroblastic meningioma that was detected 31 years after surgical resection of the intracranial meningioma.
