ABSTRACT: A 68-year-old male, pointed out of bilateral lung tumors, was hospitalized for the evaluation of multiple lung tumors. Chest computed tomography demonstrated 10 x 10 mm and 30 x 60 mm tumors in left lower lung and a 16 x 16 mm tumor in right lower lung. He was operated under the diagnosis of intracranial meningioma 26-years ago. For purpose of diagnosis, partial resections of left lower lung were performed, and then these tumors were diagnosed as pulmonary metastasis of intracranial meningioma. This is a very rare case of pulmonary metastasis of meningioma 26-years after craniotomy.
