DIAGNOSIS AND PREDICTORS OF TREATMENT OUTCOMES IN MENINGIOMAS WITH ATYPICAL OR ANAPLASTIC HISTOLOGY
Introduction, Objectives, Methods, Results, and Conclusion.
Atypical and anaplastic meningiomas (WHO grade II and III) are uncommon tumors with poorer prognosis than benign meningiomas. They represent a small and heterogeneous subgroup of meningiomas that has more aggressive biological nature and higher frequency of recurrence. Treatment of these tumors remains challenging and recurrence is common even after gross total resection. We report five year experience of an experienced neurosurgical center (INC) reviewing treatment options and predictor of treatment outcomes for malignant meningiomas.
