Abstract

Meningiomas are the most common primary CNS tumors in adults, accounting for about one third of all brain lesions. Their clinical presentation is highly variable, ranging from accidental asymptomatic lesions to fatal tumors. The majority of meningiomas are benign, and gross total resection results in very low recurrence rates, with radiotherapy or radiosurgery reserved for recurrence or residual tumor growing on post operating imagery. At the other ends of the spectrum, malignant meningiomas represent only 1% of meningiomas and have a very high recurrence rate. Only 1% has been recognized as having aggressive behavior that ultimately proves lethal, regardless of the extent of resection or the use of adjuvant radiotherapy and chemotherapy. In the last two
decades, there has been a pathological recognition of a third type of meningioma, the so-called "atypical" meningioma, whose histological and clinical features lie on the borderline between benign and malignant meningiomas. Here we describe a case of an atypical bleeding meningioma and discuss the management in light of the associated clinical, radiological and surgical challenges of this case.
