Lower urinary tract symptoms secondary to mass lesion of the brain: A case report
Intracranial mass lesions presenting secondary to neurologic disorders are well established but are rarely causes of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). Only a very few cases were described in the literature. We present a 64‑year‑old woman with urinary urgency, frequency, and incontinence, which were secondary to a large meningioma along the anterior falx. New‑onset neurologic symptoms presenting as any unusual clinical presentations of LUTS should be explored to rule out potentially treatable causes before making decisions for uro‑gynecological interventions.
