Abstract

 Background: Sudden unexpected death of an apparently healthy individual is an expected event in the life of a forensic expert. Neurological causes account for only 15% of all SUDDEN DEATHs of which deaths from an undiagnosed primary intracranial neoplasm is exceptionally rare. MENINGIOMA is a common INTRACRANIAL TUMOR and it is rarely associated with sudden, unexpected deaths.Case Report: We report one such case of SUDDEN DEATH in a 32-year old male with an olfactory MENINGIOMA without any prior history of neurological symptoms raising queries regarding the cause of death.Conclusion: This case illustrates the possibility of MENINGIOMA remaining silent till middle age and can present with sudden onset of seizures which may lead to fatality.
