Author information

Department of Pathology, Faculty of Medicine, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand.


A report is made of a unique combination of occurrences of primary intraspinal epidural and subdural meningiomas and primary subcutaneous meningioma in the cervical region of a 15-year-old boy. The subcutaneous meningioma was detected at birth. Review of 92 recorded cases of primary dermal meningiomas revealed that they tended to occur in young patients, with an average age of 34 years for both sexes. The female-to-male ratio was 4:5. Most cutaneous meningiomas occurred in the head and neck, and the scalp was the most common site.
