Dr Ashish J Chandwadkar | Dr. Sanjay V Dhotre | Dr. Hansa Goswami [15]

Abstract: Background: Meningioma is a neoplasm arising from the arachnoidal cap cells in the meningeal coverings of the spinal cord and brain. These are the most common benign intracranial tumours and account for about 13-26% of all primary brain neoplasms. These are generally benign neoplasms, but about 10% are atypical or malignant. Objective: To study the variants and histopathological spectrum of meningioma. Material & Methods: This study includes cases of Meningioma diagnosed over a period of one year. Result: Most common variant was noted to be Meningothelial meningioma followed by Atypical meningioma. Out of the 67 cases reported, cases with Grade 1 were 74.6 % whereas those with Grade 2 were 22.3 %. Conclusion: From our study, we conclude that Meningothelial meningioma is the most common variant. Benign meningiomas are the most common type.
