Meningiomas are rare tumors of childhood and adolescence but one should always consider them when making a differential diagnosis. Seventy-five patients in this age group were reviewed, including 7 of our own. Several features differing from those of adulthood meningiomas are described. Some of the tumors may have unusual growth patterns, such as cyst formation, resulting in confusing angiographic appearances.
