Abstract

A 59-year-old man presented with an intracranial mass that involved the cavernous sinus. It was biopsied percutaneously through the foramen ovale and the diagnosis of meningioma was established. The literature was reviewed for the employment of similar procedures and the potential benefits of this technique explored.
