Meningiomas located in the foramen magnum area are uncommon. We report the case of a patient with a mass lesion compressing the medulla, who was admitted to the Neurology Department for cervical pain and tetraparesis. On the MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) examination, specific features for a meningioma were described, confirmed later by the histopathological examination. The patient presented a favorable evolution, at only one month after surgery. Keywords: Meningioma, Tetraparesis, Foramen Magnum, Neurosurgery
