Clear cell meningioma is a rare subtype of meningioma seen mainly in pediatric patients. Supratentorial location is an unusual site of occurrence and its natural history and prognosis are not well described in the literature. We present a unique case of a left-sided frontoparietal tumor in a 15-year-old child who was managed successfully with gross total surgical excision and is recurrence-free at 18 months follow-up. A favorable clinical behavior and a longer symptom-free interval can be expected after gross total removal. The patients should be followed after successful surgery and other modalities of therapy should be used for recurrence.
