The occurrence of meningiomas in children is rare, accounting for less than 5% of tumors of the central nervous system in childhood. This is a retrospective study of 10 patients with CNS meningiomas. The goal of this study was to determine the epidemiology, clinical and radiological features, and long-term outcome of meningiomas The results ware compared with those reported in the literature.

    Meningioma is a well-recognized tumor of the central nervous system, but it rarely appears as an extracranial tumor secondarily extended into the paranasal sinuses. Meningiomas arise from arachnoid cap cells that form the external membrane of the brain. Most meningiomas are slow growing and are...

    Meningioma is usually a benign central nervous system (CNS) tumor. Metastasis is rare; however if it does occur the most metastatic sites are the liver and lungs. Here, two cases of CNS meningioma with metastasis to cervical lymph nodes are reported. The first case, a 48 year-old man developed...
