Abstract Histopathological examination of surgical specimens in two patients with an operative diagnosis of meningioma, revealed the presence of dense nodular aggregation of lymphocytes, plasma cells and conspicious absence of meningothelial components. Possibilities of lymphoreticular malignancy, myeloproliferative disorders and other causes for various inflammatory diseases were excluded by appropriate investigation in these two patients. Pathogenesis of this localised lymphocyte-plasma cell aggreation in the dura manifesting as a space-occupying lesion could not be defined in these two patients. It is emphasised that this benign lesion should be recognised as well as distinguished from secondary lymphomatous deposits and solitary plasmacytoma of the dura.
