Abstract

Both meningioma and glioblastoma are very common intra-cranial neoplasm. Typically both have distinguishing clinical and radiological features which aid in diagnosis and thus pre-operative preparation, planning, counseling the patient etc. But dilemma may often arise in case of non-grade-I meningioma making confusion in favor of higher grade astrocytoma (glioblastoma). In that case total per-operative picture, surgical approach, post- operative managements, and disease prognosis will be altered. We faced such kind of confusion in a case so reported here.
