The first case of a ventricular meningioma that was encapsulated by the dura-like membrane is reported. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a heterogeneous mass with a low intensity rim in the trigone of the right lateral ventricle of a 63-year-old male. Histological examination revealed that the tumor was a transitional meningioma encapsulated by a thick dura-like membrane. Moreover, abundant clusters of the dura-like connective tissue existed in the tumor, indicating that both the dura-like capsule and the dura-like clusters in the tumor were created by the tumor cells.
