Meningiomas constitute approximately 15% of primary brain tumors. Most meningiomas are benign with only a minor percentage of cases exhibiting malignant or metastatic behavior. Metastases have a predilection to pulmonary, bone and liver locations. The majority of pulmonary metastases are solitary, with only a few case reports of extensive lung involvement. Correct diagnosis requires histologic sampling of lung lesions. A 41-year-old male with recurrent intracranial meningioma with extensive metastatic spread to the lungs. We present radiologic imaging of the indolent natural progression of the lung metastases over a span of 7 years with no systemic treatment. The uniqueness of the case presentation will further help in the understanding of this rare entity.
