Coexistence of multifocal neural crest tumors, namely meningioma, melanoma, and nerve sheath tumors, is termed as neurocristopathy. Neurofibromatosis is the commonest form of neurocristopathy. We report a rare case of frontal lobe metastatic melanoma coexistent with a parietal lobe meningioma, in the absence of any stigmata of neurofibromatosis.
