12 - Recurrent multiple intracranial meningiomas

Ahmet Mesrur Halefoğlu, Muhammet Acar, Sami Yakut

Meningiomas are the second most common tumors following glial tumors and account for approximately 20% of all central nervous system tumors. Multiple meningiomas have an incidence ranging between 5.9% and 10.5%. In our case report, we have presented a 73 year female patient who had been operated for a right frontal meningioma. After 8 years, she developed at least 6 more new tumors, which led us towards the supposition of a subarachnoid dissemination, resulting from the previously operated tumor. In our presentation, we have discussed the occurence, incidence and mechanisms of new meningioma development following operation.

Keywords: Multiple meningioma, recurrence, subarachnoid spread.
