A 65-year-old woman dies 6 months after the onset ...
[Here's more info](http://www.pathologyoutlines.com/topic/cnstumormeningiomageneral.html)
I got it wrong because I didn't see any apparent Dura mater nor other meninges (The veins aren't being covered by any "shiny layer"), so I thought the tumor was coming from inside the brain and not compressing it like meningiomas usually do.
But it did follow the common aspect where they are found in between divisions of brain and are circular growths like a ball.
Since it was basically implied that the patient died and "here look at what this is" I thought it was a malignant tumor (glioblastoma)... but I guess it's all about placement.
Above is obviously incorrect because the answer is Meningeal lol.
Here is a link to a good picture:
Obviously thomas is disagreeing with the presentation of the question, and I agreed with him! This absolutely sounds like GBM, with rapid onset leading to death, and the symptoms. The question stem leads you to GBM, and the gross image to meningioma (I guess).
Furthermore, where are the meninges on the gross image form which this (meningioma) grew?! It should at least show the tissue from whence it came!
Had the same problem, got confused since it appeared that the growth was malignant :(
