A 13-year-old, neutered male, chihuahua was referred to the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital of Chungnam National University with a history of a bilateral mandibular mass, intermittent vomiting, cough, and left sided staggering starting ten days prior. Clinical examination along with radiography, neurologic examination and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated a well-circumscribed and solitary mass in the brain stem. The dura mater was thickened with marked linear enhancement after contrast administration. Based on diagnostic image analysis and histopathologic examination, this case was diagnosed as intracranial meningioma. The patient's symptoms were controlled for 18 months by a combination therapy of prednisolone and lomustine (CCNU), and then he died of at home.
