A seventeen year old male patient presented with clinical features suggestive of raised intracranial pressure. CT Scan and MRI of brain revealed two mass lesions, one in trigone of each lateral ventricle. They were imageologically alike, appearing as mirror image masses. Both ware totally excised through occipitoparietal transventricular approach on the respective side of the lesion. Postoperative period was uneventful. Repeat CT Scan showed no residue of the lesions. Histopathological examination showed meningioma. To the best of our knowledge this is the first published report on bilateral trigonal meningiomas.
