Abstract
Because of their deep location, surrounded by many vital neurovascular structures, skull base meningiomas have been regarded as challenging lesions for surgical treatment. Stereotactic radiosurgery has been reported to be safe and effective to control skull base meningiomas. However, the use of radiosurgery must be considered very cautiously in treating skull base meningiomas, especially younger patients. In this study, we report a case with a huge skull base meningioma who had received radiosurgery prior to surgical removal.
