abstract

  • We present the first description of CT of a meningioma of the mandible in the literature. Extracranial meningiomas are exceedingly rare. There have been 3 cases of meningioma of the mandible described in the literature, but none characterized with cross-sectional imaging. We describe the clinical and CT features used to establish the diagnosis as well as how to differentiate this lesion from other pathology of the mandible.
