Meningioma is a common benign tumor originating in the brain, but primary pulmonary meningioma is very rare. It is usually benign, slow-growing, and responds well to treatment. The most common manifestation is an isolated pulmonary nodule that radiologically resembles a benign primary lung tumor. Herein, we report a case of a complete thoracoscopic resection of a primary pulmonary meningioma.
