Head and neck meningiomas are primarily intracranial neoplasms; they rarely present in extracranial locations. Two cases of meningiomas in the paranasal sinuses and seven cases in the temporal bone are described. The pathology, pathogenesis, clinical evaluation, and therapy are discussed. It is stressed that intracranial components of such meningiomas be sought and, as appropriate treated.
