Case report. A 70-years-old woman presented with a one week history of progressive loss of vision in the right eye (RE) diagnosed as retinal detachment from 7 to 1 o’ clock with retinal break at the 10.30 o’ clock associated. Gadolinium enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of the brain and orbits with fat suppression showed a convexity meningioma. Scleral buckling with a segmental sponge, subretinal fluid drainage and cryopexy were performed with detachment repair. Conclusion. In our patient with retinal detachment and convexity meningioma without significant neurological symptoms, performing ocular surgery and close follow up care seemed to be the optimal treatment option.
