Three weeks before admission, left hemiparesis and speech disturbance were developed and magnetic resonance image showed cystic mass with nodular enhancement in the right parietal area. Craniotomy and total removal of mass was performed and the histological diagnosis of atypical meningioma and pilocytic asrtocytoma were done.
