Chordoid meningioma is an uncommon histopathological type of meningioma, frequently associated with Castleman's syndrome. Histologically, chordoid meningiomas are similar to chordomas. Because of their high proliferative index, they present aggressive biological behavior and high risk of postoperative recurrence. We report a case of chordoid meningioma in an adult patient without Castleman's syndrome manifestation. As its chordoid feature is related with a rapid recurrence after incomplete removal, meticulous histopathological examination is crucial for the adequate postoperative treatment plan.
