ABSTRACT
A case of malignant meningioma which has grown rapidly after gross total removal and metastasized to thoracic spines after second operation is reported. We recommend that early spinal magnetic resonance image should be performed in patient with spinal symptoms and signs after the treatment of intracranial meningioma and intensive treatment combined with operation and radiosurgery should be performed for the reduction of growth rate in the recurred malignant meningoma.
Key Words: Malignant meningioma; Spinal metastasis; Radiosurgery
