Background: Sphenoid wing meningiomas are common in females and association with colon cancer in females is known. An unusual case of meningioma with co-existant caecal cancer is being reported in a male patient. Case description: A 76-year-old male patient diagnosed with left lateral sphenoid wing meningioma underwent total excision of the tumour. Post-operatively he developed intestinal obstruction due to perforation of colonic growth. Histopathology confirmed the lesion as adenocarcinoma. The patient succumbed to septic shock. Conclusion: The uniqueness of male presentation and a perforated colonic cancer manifesting post-operatively has not been reported in the past. The possibility of syndromic presentation should always be kept in mind.
