Abstract Rhabdoid meningioma is a rare variant of meningioma classified as grade III under the new World Health Organization (WHO) classification of brain tumors. Although this tumor is known for its aggressive behavior, dissemination into cerebral. spinal fluid (CSF) is extremely rare. We report here a case of rhabdoid meningioma in a young man, operated on twice previously, who presented with multiple CSF areas of seeding in the brain and spinal cord. The imaging findings for this tumor, including diffusion and perfusion MR sequences, are highlighted. This particular histological subtype of meningioma has a poor prognosis and must be treated aggressively. (C) 2008 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved.
