  • Meningioma is a common intracranial tumor, originating from the meninges of the skull or spinal canal.
  • Most meningiomas are benign tumors, however atypical or anaplastic tumors can be found in 6% of cases.
  • Patients with asymptomatic small benign meningiomas can be followed without therapy, but in symptomatic patients complete surgical resection should be performed.
  • For recurrent previously resected tumors re-resection is recommended followed by radiotherapy in selected cases.
  • Antiprogesterone treatment can also be considered in recurrent benign meningiomas.
  • Immunotherapy with interferon-alpha and chemotherapy should be reserved for all cases of recurrent meningiomas (benign, atypical, and malignant) when all the standard therapies have failed or contraindicated.

  • [Title] MR imaging features of spinal schwannomas and meningiomas.
  • Spinal schwannomas and meningiomas are mostly benign, intra-dural extramedullary tumours.
  • We retrospectively reviewed the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) examinations of 52 spinal schwannomas and meningiomas operated on at our institution since 1998.
  • In conclusion, we consider that a diagnosis of schwannoma should be made when a spinal intradural extramedullary tumour shows hyperintensity on T2W images or intense enhancement without dural tail sign; otherwise meningioma is more probable.

  • [Title] CyberKnife radiosurgery for benign intradural extramedullary spinal tumors.
  • OBJECTIVE: Microsurgical resection of benign intradural extramedullary spinal tumors is generally safe and successful, but patients with neurofibromatosis, recurrent tumors, multiple lesions, or medical problems that place them at higher surgical risk may benefit from alternatives to surgery.
  • In this prospective study, we analyzed our preliminary experience with image-guided radiosurgical ablation of selected benign spinal neoplasms.
  • METHODS: Since 1999, CyberKnife (Accuray, Inc., Sunnyvale, CA) radiosurgery was used to manage 51 patients (median age, 46 yr; range, 12-86 yr) with 55 benign spinal tumors (30 schwannomas, nine neurofibromas, 16 meningiomas) at Stanford University Medical Center.
  • RESULTS: Less than 1 year postradiosurgery, three of the 51 patients in this series (one meningioma, one schwannoma, and one neurofibroma) required surgical resection of their tumor because of persistent or worsening symptoms; only one of these lesions was larger radiographically.
  • CONCLUSION: Although more patients studied over an even longer follow-up period are needed to determine the long-term efficacy of spinal radiosurgery for benign extra-axial neoplasms, short-term clinical benefits were observed in this prospective analysis.

  • [Title] Benign and atypical meningioma metabolic signatures by high-resolution magic-angle spinning molecular profiling.
  • Meningiomas are neoplasms that arise from the leptomeningeal covering of the brain and spinal cord, accounting for 15%-20% of CNS tumors.
  • The WHO classifies meningiomas into three histological grades: benign, atypical, and anaplasic in accordance with the clinical prognosis.
  • Sometimes, meningiomas with histological diagnosis of benign meningioma show clinical characteristics of atypical meningioma.
  • In this work, we show differences between benign and atypical meningiomas in HR-MAS molecular profiles of meningioma biopsies.
  • Metabolic differences between meningioma grades include changes in the levels of glutathione.
  • Other metabolites associated with tumor malignancy that show statistically significant differences between benign and atypical meningiomas include phosphocholine and phosphoethanolamine.

  • OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE: Meningeal melanocytomas are rare benign neuro-ectodermal tumors arising from melanocytic cells in the leptomeninges.
  • These leptomeningeal melanocytes are found at highest density underneath the brain stem and along the upper cervical spinal cord.
  • Thus, most reported cases of meningeal melanocytomas are located in the posterior fossa and the spinal cord, respectively.
  • CLINICAL PRESENTATION: We report on the rare case of a 55-year-old male patient with a large supratentorial meningeal melanocytoma mimicking a convexity meningioma and a smaller, similarly dura based lesion in the posterior fossa.

  • [Title] [Spinal meningioma surgery after 75 years of age].
  • [Transliterated title] La chirurgie des méningiomes rachidiens après 75 ans.
  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Spinal meningioma surgery is usually not difficult and is commonly associated with good outcome.
  • Therefore, we attempted to assess the surgical outcome of spinal meningiomas in the elderly and to analyze the role of outcome predictors.

  • [Title] Spinal meningioma: relationship between histological subtypes and surgical outcome?
  • Intraspinal meningiomas are slow growing benign tumors that produce indolent neurological deficits, which are often reversible following operation.
  • Retrospectively, we reviewed the charts of 33 patients with spinal meningiomas who were operated on from January 1980 through December 1995.
  • Spinal meningiomas were of high-cervical location in 9 (27%) and of low-cervico-thoracic location in 24 (73%) patients.
  • Resection of psammomatous meningiomas of the spine is associated with a less favorable neurological outcome postoperatively than resection of spinal meningiomas of other pathological subtypes.
  • Posterior or lateral tumor position in the spinal canal, location below C4, age less than 60 years, and duration of preoperative symptoms seem to be correlated with a good outcome.

  • [Title] Intradural extramedullary spinal ependymoma: a benign pathology?
  • STUDY DESIGN: Spinal ependymoma is a benign central nervous system tumor described as an intramedullary lesion more frequently located at the conus medullaris.
  • SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: This case demonstrates an unusual location of a benign ependymal tumor in the extramedullary space with a total resection, which recurred in a lower level with a malignant transformation with the same extramedullary location.
  • METHODS: The authors present the case of a 47-year-old woman with a subacute spinal cord dysfunction and an intradural extramedullary D2-D3 tumor mimicking meningioma or neurinoma.
  • RESULTS: After complete resection, anatomic-pathologic studies confirmed that the lesion was a benign classic ependymoma.
  • CONCLUSION: All of the previously reported cases of spinal intradural extramedullary ependymomas carried out a benign course.

  • We evaluate epidemiologic factors of meningioma in Iran & degree of agreement between the two commonly used grading systems namely WHO (2000) and Mahmood systems.
  • 205(86.1%) cases were benign, 19(8%) atypical and 14(5.9%) malignant.
  • 181(18%) cases were primary and 51(27%) secondary; 35(68%) of the latter benign, 7(14%) atypical and 9(18%) malignant.
  • All intraspinal meningiomas were benign.
  • In benign cranial and spinal types female to male ratios were 1.9: 1 and 1.3: 1 ; while in atypical and malignant types were 1 :1.4 and 1:3.1 respectively.
  • Mean ages were 49.9 for benign.
  • Female preponderance seen in benign nonrecurrent meningioma became increasingly less prominent and even reversed in recurrent, atypical and malignant forms.
  • Benign recurrent tumors were similar to non-recurrent tumors microscopically.

  • [Title] Aggressive orbital optic nerve meningioma with benign microscopic features: a case report.
  • Primary optic nerve meningiomas occur at lower ages than meningiomas arising from the coverings of the brain and spinal cord.
  • Here we report the case of a 20-year-old female with an aggressive orbital meningioma referred to the Ophthalmology Department of the Farabi Hospital in Tehran.
  • The patient had a history of orbital meningioma from 10 years ago and several surgical resections due to tumor recurrence during these 10 years.
  • Microscopic study showed meningotheliomatous meningioma with extensive involvement of the optic nerve and invasion of the optic disc, sclera and choroid.
  • The interesting aspect of this case was the aggressive behavior of the tumor with intraocular invasion, despite its benign histopathological features, which led to wide exenteration of the eye together with resection of the upper and lower lids.

  • [Title] Spinal drop metastases from a papillary meningioma: a case report and review of the literature: utility of CSF sampling.
  • In this paper, we report a rare case of a 29-year-old boy who presented with papillary meningioma originating from the posterior fossa meninges.
  • After a long, disease-free period, however, spinal drop metastases occurred 32 months after resection of the primary tumor.
  • The primary and metastatic lesions had a similar histological appearance, meaning that multiple spinal metastatic lesions occurred through CSF route even after a gross total resection of the tumor.
  • Tumor seeding during surgery is the evident reason for spinal metastasis, although we strictly adhered to the standard precautions for operations for malignant tumors such as obstruction of the cisterna magna with cotton paddies, and changing surgical gloves and instruments during the operation.
  • In this report, we briefly discuss an exceedingly rare variant of meningioma, the papillary variant, and suggest a new approach, a CSF sampling, in the management of both malignant and benign meningiomas.
  • Furthermore, we discussed that meningiomas are tumors that are not as benign as initially thought.

  • [Title] Spinal meningioma: chronicles of contemporary neurosurgical diagnosis and management.
  • Spinal meningiomas are uncommon entities that fortunately burden only a small minority of patients.
  • Notwithstanding their overwhelmingly benign propensity, the occurrence of extramedullary meningioma may nonetheless cause significant morbidity and possible mortality.
  • The consideration therefore, of spinal meningioma in the differential of patients presenting with radiculopathy or complaints of chronic back or neck pain should not be disregarded.
  • A review on neurosurgical diagnosis and treatment modalities in the management of spinal meningioma is therefore pertinent.

  • Spinal meningiomas are usually benign, slow-growing tumours and are commonly associated with good patient outcome following surgery.
  • We retrospectively reviewed data from 33 patients with 35 spinal meningiomas treated in our institution over the past 17 years and exhibiting severe preoperative deficits before surgery.
  • It can be concluded from this study, that, in the vast majority of cases, patients harbouring spinal meningioma with severe preoperative deficits can expect a good outcome.

  • [Title] Surgical cytoreduction for the treatment of non-lymphoid vertebral and spinal cord neoplasms in cats: retrospective evaluation of 26 cases (1990-2005).
  • Medical records of 26 cats with non-lymphoid vertebral and spinal cord neoplasms treated surgically were reviewed to determine outcome and prognostic factors for survival.
  • Osteosarcoma (3/26 cats) and meningioma (16/26 cats) were the most common malignant and benign tumours, respectively.
  • The median survival time for cats with malignant neoplasms was 110.5 days, compared with 518 days for cats with benign tumours.
  • Results suggest that contemporary neurosurgical techniques commonly result in incomplete excision of feline non-lymphoid vertebral and spinal cord tumours but are efficacious at palliation of clinical signs of spinal cord dysfunction.

  • [Title] CyberKnife Frameless Radiosurgery for the treatment of extracranial benign tumors.
  • Limited data exists for the use of radiosurgery for benign extracranial tumors.
  • The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility, toxicity, and local control of patients with benign extracranial lesions treated with the CyberKnife Frameless Radiosurgery System.
  • From September 2001 thru January 2004, 59 benign tumors in 44 patients were treated using the CyberKnife a frameless image-guided radiosurgery system.
  • The anatomic locations of these tumors were spinal (25 cervical, four thoracic, 14 lumbar, and two sacral), neck (eight), orbital (three), brainstem (one), and foramen magnum (one).
  • The median spinal cord volume receiving more than 8 Gy was 0.035 cc (range 0-2.5 cc) and the median maximum spinal cord dose 11.5 Gy (range 0-19.8 Gy).
  • This study suggests that CyberKnife Radiosurgery is a safe and efficacious treatment modality for benign tumors, even for those patients with recurrent previously irradiated lesions.

  • All tumors were crooked with dura and spinal roots resulting in incomplete resection in three cases.
  • On histological examination, two tumors were almost acellular and showed polycyclic hyaline and fibrotic extracellular matrix leading to differential diagnoses of chordoma, meningioma, fibrolipoma and ependymoma.
  • Although the morphological feature of these myxopapillary ependymomas was benign, the presented cases showed that the biological behavior of myxopapillary tumors might differ greatly and that these tumors present a serious operative and diagnostic challenge.

  • Meningiomas are usually benign neoplasms in which extracranial metastases occur very rarely.
  • We report a case of multiple extracranial metastases of an atypical meningioma following a local recurrence.
  • We performed a total mass removal, and the histopathologic findings were consistent with benign meningioma.
  • Eight months later, the meningioma recurred.
  • The histopathologic findings showed atypical meningioma.
  • The histopathologic findings of the spinal tumors showed atypical meningioma.
  • The results from perirenal biopsies were consistent with metastatic meningioma.
  • In conclusion, extracranial metastasis as well as local recurrence must be considered in atypical or anaplastic meningioma.

  • [Title] Metastatic meningioma to the eleventh dorsal vertebral body: total en bloc spondylectomy. Case report and review of the literature.
  • To our knowledge, this is the first description of a total en bloc spondylectomy through a posterior approach for the treatment of an intraosseous metastatic meningioma to the eleventh dorsal vertebra.
  • CASE REPORT: In March 1996, a 37 year-old male underwent surgical resection for a left occipital intraventricular benign meningioma (WHO I).
  • Advice from a second pathologist was seeked, who suggested the diagnosis of intraosseous meningioma.
  • Definite pathology: benign meningioma (WHO I).
  • DISCUSSION: Distant metastases from intracranial meningiomas are rare entities, arising from benign lesions in, at least, 60% of cases.
  • Enam et al proposed a specific pathological score to differentiate benign, atypic and malignant meningiomas.
  • We believe this case represents a paradigmatic indication of this technique because it respects the concepts of radical resection and spinal stability, and offers an opportunity for the curation of the disease.

  • OBJECT: In this report, the authors describe their experience in the surgical management of spinal meningiomas at two neurosurgical centers.
  • METHODS: Eighty consecutive patients (22 men and 58 women) with spinal meningiomas who had undergone an operation at two specific neurosurgical centers were included in this study.
  • A review of the literature yielded an additional 651 patients with spinal meningiomas from 9 large studies.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Because of the excellent outcome of surgery for benign spinal meningiomas and the association between duration of symptoms and neurological compromise with a poor functional outcome, early operation is the treatment of choice.

  • METHODS: The cases of 794 consecutive patients who underwent resection for meningioma at the Cleveland Clinic between January 1991 and March 2004 were reviewed retrospectively.
  • The authors analyzed the relationship between the tumors' histological subtypes and sites of origin in the 731 patients from this group who harbored tumors that were determined to be benign histologically (World Health Organization Grade I).
  • The incidence of MM according to the site of origin was as follows: 84.9% (186/219) in the midline skull base, 58.3% (35/60) in the lateral skull base, 48.5% (183/377) in a non-skull base location, and 80% (60/75) in spinal locations.
  • The incidence of MM in the midline skull base and spinal locations were significantly higher than in non-skull base or lateral skull base locations.
  • Analysis of the increasingly available data on genetic and topographic characteristics of MMs suggests that they may represent a unique entity, contrary to the prevailing belief that all benign meningiomas are identical tumors.

  • Eighty-one cases were selected and arranged in six groups according to clinical data and grading: 14 benign non-recurrent meningiomas; 14 primary benign recurrent meningiomas and their subsequent benign recurrences; 14 atypical; 11 malignant and 14 spinal meningiomas.
  • There was a significant difference between benign non-recurrenttumors versus benign recurrent (P<0.0001) and atypical or malignant (P<0.0001) tumors.
  • A mean AgNOR count of <2.3 could separate benign tumors from atypical or malignant meningiomas with 93% specificity; and 93% of tumors with benign histology had no recurrence potential if their mean AgNOR count was less than 1.8.
  • CONCLUSION: This study indicates that in meningioma, the AgNOR count has a good correlation with tumor grading and recurrence, which may aid pathologists and clinicians in predicting tumor behavior.

  • [Title] Clinical assessment of stereotactic IGRT: spinal radiosurgery.
  • Its use for the treatment of spinal lesions has been limited because of the availability of effective target immobilization devices.
  • Recent advances in stereotactic IGRT have allowed for spinal applications.
  • Large clinical experience with spinal radiosurgery to properly assess clinical outcomes has previously been limited.
  • At our institution, we have developed a successful multidisciplinary spinal radiosurgery program in which 542 spinal lesions (486 malignant and 56 benign lesions) were treated with a single-fraction radiosurgery technique.
  • The most common benign tumors were neurofibroma (24 cases), schwannoma (13 cases), and meningioma (7 cases).
  • Three hundred thirty-seven lesions had received prior external beam irradiation with spinal cord doses precluding further conventional irradiation.
  • Spinal stereotactic radiosurgery is now a feasible, safe, and clinically effective technique for the treatment of a variety of spinal lesions.
  • The potential benefits of radiosurgical ablation of spinal lesions are short treatment time in an outpatient setting with essentially no recovery time and excellent symptomatic response.
  • This technique offers a new therapeutic modality for the primary treatment of a variety of spinal lesions, including the treatment of neoplasms in medically inoperable patients, previously irradiated sites, for lesions not amenable to open surgical techniques, and as an adjunct to surgery.

  • [Title] Microarray-based analysis of spinal versus intracranial meningiomas: different clinical, biological, and genetic characteristics associated with distinct patterns of gene expression.
  • It has long been recognized that spinal meningiomas show particular clinical and histological features.
  • Here, we compare the clinico-biological characteristics as well as the genetic abnormalities and patterns of gene expression of spinal and intracranial meningiomas.
  • Fourteen spinal and 141 intracranial meningioma patients were analyzed at diagnosis.
  • Additionally, microarray analyses were performed on a subgroup of 18 histologically benign meningiomas (7 spinal and 11 intracranial).
  • Upon comparison with intracranial tumors, spinal meningiomas showed a marked predominance of psammomatous and transitional tumors (p = 0.001), together with a higher proportion of cases displaying a single tumor cell clone by iFISH (p = 0.004).
  • In 86% of the spinal versus 56% of the intracranial tumors (p = 0.01), the ancestral tumor cell clone detected showed either absence of any chromosomal abnormality or monosomy 22/22q- alone.
  • Analysis of gene expression profiles showed differential expression between spinal and intracranial meningiomas for a total of 1555 genes, 35 of which allowed a clear distinction between both tumor types.
  • Most of these 35 genes (n = 30) showed significantly higher expression among spinal tumors and corresponded to genes involved in signal transduction pathways, which did not show a significantly different expression according to tumor histopathology.
  • In summary, we show the occurrence of unique patterns of genetic abnormalities and gene expression profiles in spinal as compared to intracranial meningiomas that provide new insights into the molecular pathways involved in the tumorigenesis and progression of spinal meningiomas, and could help explain their particular clinical and histological features.

  • [Title] Radiosurgery for benign intradural spinal tumors.
  • OBJECTIVE: The role of stereotactic radiosurgery for the treatment of intracranial benign tumors is well established.
  • There is less experience and more controversy regarding its use for benign tumors of the spine.
  • This study evaluated the clinical efficacy of radiosurgery as part of the treatment paradigm of selected benign tumors of the spine.
  • METHODS: Seventy-three benign intradural extramedullary spinal tumors were treated with a radiosurgery technique and prospectively evaluated.
  • Tumor histology included neurofibroma (25 cases), schwannoma (35 cases), and meningioma (13 cases).
  • Three patients experienced new symptoms attributed to radiation-induced spinal cord toxicity 5 to 13 months after treatment.
  • CONCLUSION: Single fraction radiosurgery was found to be clinically effective for the treatment of benign extramedullary spinal neoplasms.
  • Although surgical extirpation remains the primary treatment option for most benign spinal tumors, radiosurgery was demonstrated to have short-term clinical benefits for the treatment of such lesions.
  • The long-term efficacy of spinal radiosurgery for such tumors will be determined with longer follow-up periods.

  • PURPOSE: Stereotactic radiotherapy using the CyberKnife has become a key treatment in the multidisciplinary management of secondary tumours, as well as primary benign or malignant tumours located within or adjacent to vertebral bodies and the spinal cord.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: In this study, we present the first patients treated with CyberKnife between December 2006 and December 2007 for spinal or paraspinal tumours.
  • Thirteen patients had been pre-treated, three of whom had received spinal cord doses considered to be maximal.
  • The main advantages are better sparing of the spinal cord and the possibility of increasing the dose to the tumour target volume.
