Abstract :

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. 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.
