Dural attachment

Extremely rare cases of supratentorial meningiomas without dural attachment have been described in adults. The uncommon locations of these tumors at sites distant from the dura mater is postulated to reflect the rare occurrence of arachnoidal cap cells in the Virchow-Robin spaces along the cerebral vasculature or in pial layers distant from the dura mater 1).
