We report the case of a meningioma which developed in the parieto-occipital lobe at the site where a brain abscess had been aspirated 9 years previously. There was no history of head trauma. To the best of our knowledge this is the first reported case of a meningioma associated and possibly aetiologically related to a previous inflammatory process in the absence of head trauma. The association of chronic inflammation and the subsequent development of a meningioma is discussed.
