Primary myxoma of the parafalcine meninges. Case report.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The authors report on an unusual case of a primary intracranial myxoma in a 39-year-old woman. The patient presented with headache and generalized seizure. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a large right frontal tumor resembling a parasagittal meningioma. A gross-total resection was performed, and histological review confirmed the lesion as a myxoma. Results of additional workup revealed the absence of a primary myxoma elsewhere. This case represents the third published report of a primary intracranial myxoma and the second report of a supratentorial myxoma.
