• Seven cases of eosinophilic meningitis associated with neoplastic infiltration of the leptomeninges have been reported. Five of the tumors were reticuloendothelial, one was a melanoma, and one was a medulloblastoma. We report a case of malignant astrocytoma with seeding of the subarachnoid space and eosinophilic meningitis.
