FIRST PARAGRAPH: Meningiomas account for 30% of all intracranial neoplasms, but primary extracranial (ectopic) meningiomas of the ear and temporal bone are less common, accounting for about 10% of all ear and temporal bone tumors. Meningiomas are derived from the arachnoid cap cells, also called pacchionian bodies.
