Non-meningothelial tumours of the meninges constitute a rare but diverse group of pathologies and consist of mesenchymal, melanocytic, and metastatic lesions. Haemangioblastomas constitute a separate but related lesion that can affect the meninges. Although the bulk of the literature on these lesions is limited to case reports and small series, the general guidelines for treatment of most of these pathologies is based on treatment protocols for non-meningeal lesions. Guidelines from the National Comprehensive Cancer Network and other professional organizations are not available. This chapter presents the combined surgical, chemotherapeutic, and radiosurgical treatment of these lesions.
