Recent advances in diagnostic tools, such as computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), have provided clinicians with the opportunity to detect asymptomatic meningiomas. This report describes a case of frontal convexity meningioma detected incidentally at MRI during the preoperative assessment of tongue cancer. To the best of the authors' knowledge, this case report is the first regarding the successful treatment of tongue cancer in a patient with incidental meningioma. The incidence, perioperative management, and various imaging tests to detect meningiomas are discussed, with a review of the literature.
