Brain meningioma, the most common benign brain tumor, has been reported to account for 13-26% of all intracranial tumors, with a crude incidence rate of 2.3 per 100,000 persons for all types of meningiomas. The prevalence of neuropsychiatric lupus erythematosus is 15-91% and its clinical manifestations are diverse: from mild cognitive dysfunction to serious neurological or psychiatric symptoms. Here, we report the first Korean patient with brain meningioma and systemic lupus erythematosus who had undergone surgical tumor resection.
Key Words: Systemic lupus erythematosus, Meningioma, Headache
