Olfactory groove meningiomas (OGMs) are rare, intracranial tumors located in the anterior cranial fossa that grow along the nerves between the brain and the nose. This report highlights a case in which a 74-year-old Nigerian male presented with clinical features of anosmia and headache as well as pertinent CT and MRI findings that typically occur in female patients. The study reviews the importance of imaging as a means of achieving a timely diagnosis and accurately measuring the size and magnitude of the disease as it serves as a guide to surgeons when planning for intervention.
