Materials and methods: An 11-year-old girl presented to our hospital with a short history of severe headache and vomiting. MRI revealed a left frontal intracerebral cystic lesion with rim enhancement. The tumor, including the cyst wall, was totally removed. Since the histological diagnosis was rhabdoid papillary meningioma, she was treated with postoperative radiotherapy. She is currently undergoing routine follow-up without any symptoms of recurrence.

Introduction: Rhabdoid papillary meningioma is a rare meningioma variant categorized as WHO grade III. We report an 11-year-old girl with an intracerebral rhabdoid papillary meningioma.

Conclusion: We discuss the clinical picture of this patient with reference to the published literature on this uncommon diagnosis.
