Abstract

Our patient presented with a mass lesion mimicking a meningioma. The mass was resected, but pathological examination confirmed a foreign body granuloma, which was caused by silk fibres used as tenting sutures 8 years previously. Herein, we describe the case and review the neurosurgical literature on intracranial foreign body granulomas.
