We report a case of cystic meningioma at the left cerebellopontine angle (CPA). Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated both solid and cystic components in the tumor. The cystic component appeared slightly hyperintense compared to cerebrospinal fluid on fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) imaging. A hypointense tubular structure was identified in the cystic component on 3D driven equilibrium sequencing. These imaging findings are unusual for cystic meningioma. However, awareness of these unusual imaging features is important to determine appropriate treatment strategies although cystic meningioma at the CPA is extremely rare.
