Lipoblastic, lipomatous or lipidized meningioma is an unusual extra-axial benign tumor. It shows benign clinical features and has a good prognosis after surgical excision. We present a 54 -year-old woman with intracranial lipidized meningioma in the right temporal fossa, discuss the importance of the differential diagnosis among similar tumors and discuss the term 'Lipidized meningioma' in the light of the literature.
