✓The presence of müllerian-origin tissue in the lumbosacral region is extremely uncommon. The authors report two cases of müllerian-origin tissue in that region. In the first case a 33-year-old woman harbored a conus medullaris mass lesion. Spinal dysraphism, tethered cord syndrome (TCS), and diastematomyelia were also present. In the second case a 24-year-old woman presented with low-back pain and a conus medullaris lesion, which was a cause of the TCS. Pathological examination in both cases revealed a uterus-like structure with evidence of fresh and old hemorrhage. The rarity of this lesion and its association with diastematomyelia requires documentation.

Meningeal fibromas are rare intracranial tumors that mimic meningiomas radiologically as well as histologically. The authors report 2 cases of meningeal fibroma with detailed clinical, radiological, histopathological, and immunohistochemical features, and discuss the differential diagnosis of this entity. Knowledge of this rare tumor is essential for pathologists to be able distinguish it from more common meningeal tumors, especially in younger patients. This knowledge is also essential for neurosurgeons, as incomplete resection may lead to tumor recurrence, and such patients require close follow-up.
