Department of Neurosurgery, Seoul Rad Cross Hospital, Seoul, Korea.
Despite of their frequent occurrence among the brain tumor, meningiomas are rarely seen as a multiple growth, and the incidence of multiplicity in meningioma is about 2%, except for 6.7% in Horrax' series. The authors report a case of multiple meningiomas without evidence of von Recklinghausen's disease. The patient had suffered from the headache, chocked disc and right hemiplegia for about two years which had been aggravated in these two weeks before admission. Left carotid angiogram revealed as a parasagittal giant meningioma. On operation, we did not remove single giant meningioma, but six lumps of mass variably sized from walnut to hen egg, with success. The postoperative course was uneventful and the recovery from hemiplegia was dramatic.
