Meningiomas are benign tumours of the meninges, the lining of the brain and spine. They are not uncommon chance findings on brain scans; sometimes cause epilepsy or paralysis. Some meningiomas need surgery to remove them others can be left alone or monitored with serial MRI scans. Memingiomas can be hormonally sensitive, are commoner in women than men, and in postmenopausal women often do not change in size over many years.

Parkinson's is a challenging diagnosis which can be proved only at autopsy. In a living person experts try to keep an open mind over time. Some things like abnormal eye movements, bladder and sexual difficulty, low blood pressure, are not usually seen in Parkinson's and these additional features often lead to a label of "Parkinson's plus syndrome". Sometimes it is pragmatic to treat for Parkinson's disease even when these additional features are present as not all patients fir the textbook stereotype.

I have a patient just like this in whom with the wisdom of hindsight the diagnosis was CIDP not Guillain Barre. Neurological consultation and possibly nerve conduction studies may be helpful.
