ABSTRACT
Meningioma associated with intratumoral hemorrhage is rarely reported. We present two patients with intratumoral hemorrhage. One 70-year-old man was admitted to our department with a decreased level of consciousness and left hemiparesis. CT scan and MRI scan revealed huge tumor with intratumoral hemorrhage in the frontal lobe. After surgical removal of the tumor, histopathological diagnosis was a meningotheliomatous meningioma. The other seemed patients was 56-year-old woman with headache and vomiting. She showed no specific neurological deficit. CT and MRI scan revealed large size tumor with intratumoral hemorrhage that looks like meningioma. The patient died suddenly before surgery. We reviewed the relevant literature and discussed the possible mechanism of hemorrhage in the meningioma.
Key Words: Meningioma; Intratumoral hemorrhage
