The perioperative management of brain tumors can be significantly impacted by the presence of another intracranial tumor at a distinct location. We report a rare case of an adult who developed two primary brain tumors, a frontal convexity meningioma and a cerebellopontine angle (CPA) tumor at anatomically disparate locations. In our patient, it was unambiguously decided to address the CPA tumor first as it had led to multiple cranial nerve palsies and obstructive hydrocephalus. The relevant literature helped us better extrapolate the patient presentation and management of this disastrous presentation swiftly.
