Multiple intracranial meningiomas and cavernous hemangiomas


Becker, A S; Gala, F; Kollias, S (2012). Multiple intracranial meningiomas and cavernous hemangiomas. Neuroradiology Journal, 25(4):423-426.

Abstract

Intracerebral meningiomas and cavernous hemangiomas (hemangiomas, cavernomas) are entities frequently encountered by neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons. Even multiple tumors can often be observed in patients with certain congenital conditions, eg. multiple meningiomas in neurofibromatosis type 2 or multiple cavernous hemangiomas in familial cavernous malformations. However, there are only very few reported cases of concurrent meningiomas and cavernous hemangiomas, all but one related to prior radiotherapy. We describe the second case of concurrent multiple meningiomas and cavernous hemangiomas occurring de novo without a history of radiation.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
