Meningioma mostly present with localised pain associated with signs of spinal cord compression. We present a case of a 72 year old woman with a thoracal meningioma with an atypical manifestation: radicular thoracal pain with signs of mechanical hyperalgesia and allodynia without any signs of spinal cord compression. Diagnosis was made by MRI-scan of the dorsal spine. After neurosurgical resection there was a complete recovery. We like to stress the importance of providing detailed information on clinical cases, especially with an atypical manifestation. We review the literature published on meningioma and discuss the most important symptoms and signs.
