Abstract


Meningioma has an accelerated growth during pregnancy; this may become symptomatic, which may necessitate surgical treatment.

We describe a 33 year old female pregnant patient who presented with deterioration in vision of the left eye during her 28th week of gestation, treated surgically with uneventful recovery.

Vision should be saved anytime during pregnancy, especially in the second trimester when the surgery is relatively safe for both the mother and the fetus.
