Abstract

Angiomatous meningioma is a rare and distinct meningioma variant characterised with predominance of microvascularcomponent.There are few reported cases in literature with limited information on ophthalmic manifestations and radiological findings. There is no consistent feature reported so far of this neoplasm to aid in its diagnosis. Authors report an interesting case of Angiomatous Meningioma presenting as an aggressively expanding orbital mass lesion with adjacent bony destruction mimicking a malignant neoplasm.
