The study describes a clinical case of radiation-induced intracranial meningioma in a woman aged 35 y.o., 22 years later after the removal of angioreticuloma of the right parietal lobe and X-Ray therapy (total dose 68Gy). It is emphasized that patients, who received an X-Ray therapy for a primary tumor of the brain, are at-risk of radiation-induced tumors for the whole life.
