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.
