  • [Title] Giant chordoid meningioma symptomatic immediately after pregnancy: report of a rare case.
  • BACKGROUND: Chordoid meningioma is a very rare subtype of meningioma with less than 90 cases reported in the literature.
  • Herein, we present a pregnancy-associated case of a chordoid meningioma and briefly discuss possible mechanisms.
  • The postoperative period was uneventful; and histopathological diagnosis was chordoid meningioma.
  • As for this case of chordoid meningioma associated with pregnancy, we think mucin accumulation in tumor could be involved in an increase in the tumor size while delivery procedures with the common anaesthetic and sedative drugs may also have enhanced the peritumoral edema by causing a relative decrease in the cerebral blood flow.
