We report a case of hemorrhage in a parasellar meningioma shortly after embolization of the dural cavernous carotid artery branches supplying the tumor. This represents the first report of hemorrhage within a meningioma resulting from embolization with small (50- to 150-μm) polyvinyl alcohol particles, as well as the first reported case of hemorrhage complicating meningioma embolization from internal rather than external carotid artery branch embolization. We also review previously reported cases of postembolization hemorrhage from meningiomas.
