Abstract
Introduction: Low-grade gliomas (LGG) and meningioma are common brain tumors but it is rare for both tumors to be diagnosed in a same patient. Furthermore, it is rare for the same patient to develop an extracranial primary or metastasis meningioma. Probably this is the first case report of a second primary with extracranial meningiosarcoma in literature.
Case Report: We present a rare case of brain atypical meningioma which occurred shortly following craniotomy and radiotherapy after being diagnosed as brain glioma (diffused astrocytoma) in a 22-year-old Malay female. Tumors occurred at different sites of the brain namely the atypical meningioma at the temporal and the initial glioma at the frontal region. Subsequently, patient developed a right supraclavicular meningiosarcoma. We believe that the patient could have developed radiation-induced meningioma but the transformation period is very short. The patient's mother had history of brain tumor that added into the risk factors in this patient. However, we are unable to confirm whether the supraclavicular mass was a primary supraclavicular meningiosarcoma or metastatic meningiosarcoma progression from atypical meningioma.
Conclusion: There are multiple variant revealed associations of glioma and meningioma. However, these variant could be coincidental. There is a possibility that one tumor acts locally as an irritating factor that induced another unrelated neoplasm. Relation of two or more types of cancers might lead to new therapies, provided target surveillance for cancer patients and risk factors or causal agent are identified.

Keywords: Astrocytoma, Meningioma, Meningiosarcoma, Second primary, Seizure
