Biopsy proven metastatic meningioma: A case report and review of the literature

Haris Vakil, Lena Tran, Gary D.Lewis, Matthew D.Cykowski, Edward Brian Butler, Bin S.Teh

Summary:

Meningiomas are the most common type of benign tumor found in the brain and are typically benign, slow-growing lesions. The current standard of care consists of surgical resection and subsequent postoperative radiotherapy to prevent local recurrence. Because of their indolent nature, meningiomas are rarely found to spread extracranially and develop distant metastases. We present the clinical, imaging, and pathologic features of a patient who had meningioma with multiple local recurrences, who was incidentally found to have metastatic disease in the lungs. In addition, we discuss details of this case in the context of the previously reported literature.
