We present a case of intracranial lipomatous meningioma in the parietal convexity in a 64-year-old woman. The mass showed low density on computed tomography, was hyper-intense on T1-weighted magnetic resonance images, and had decreased intensity upon imaging with fat-suppressed sequences. Gross total removal of the tumor was performed. Histopathologically, the tumor was a meningioma with mixed transitional and lipomatous patterns. Immunohistochemically, the meningothelial foci were positive for epithelial membrane antigen (EMA) and vimentin, and negative for S-100 protein. The lipomatous foci were positive for EMA, vimentin, and S-100 protein. The Ki-67 index values of the meningothelial and lipomatous foci were 1.0% and 1.8%, respectively. We review previous reports of lipomatous meningioma and discuss its clinical presentations and pathology.
