Meningioma is a morphologically heterogeneous tumour arising from meningothelial cells that has been classified by the World Health Organization into 15 different histological types and graded into three types groups (Grade I, II, and III) based on the biological behavior. Metaplastic meningioma is a rare subtype of meningioma characterized by focal or widespread mesenchymal differentiation in the form of bone, cartilage, fat, or xanthomatous tissue elements. Xanthomatous meningioma is a subclass of metaplastic meningioma which is exceedingly rare. Only a few cases have been reported in the literature. Here, we report the case of a 44-year-old man, who presented with left sided weakness and was diagnosed as a case of xanthomatous meningioma.
