Meningiomas are common intracranial tumors arising from the arachnoid cells of the meninges, but the neurosurgical frequency of multiple intracranial meningiomas is low ; the pathogenesis of multiple meningioma is still unknown. The authors report sixth cases of multiple intracranial meningiomas, representing 3.3% of all meningiomas surgically removed at our hospital during the past ten years. Four cases were female. In four cases the meningiomas affected one hemisphere, and 62% were located in the convexity. All tumors were removed in one stage and except in case 5, there has been no recurrence. In this report, we present precise descriptions of cases 3 and 5.
Key Words: Intracranial; Multiple meningioma; One stage
