Meningioma is a common intracranial tumour which is usually benign. It is well-known to be high grade as atypical or anaplastic with grade II or III. Meningiomas are rarely found in paediatric patients. Extracranial metastasis from brain meningioma is rare but can occur in the lungs, pleura, liver, lymph node and bones. In this paper, we report a 16-year-old female with an extracranial metastasis of grade III meningioma to the lung. She underwent gross total resection along with chemo- and radiotherapy. The outcome and treatment modality would also be discussed.
