HISTOPATHOLOGICAL STUDY OF MENINGIOMA IN CIVIL HOSPITAL, AHMEDABAD
Author: Smita Shah, R. N. Gonsai, Rinku Makwana
Objective: This study was done to determine the clinical and histological pattern of intracranial meningioma, to determine the sociodemographic characteristic and clinical presentation and correlate this to the clinical patterns of intracranial meningioma, to find out the anatomical location of meningioma and to document the WHO histological grade of meningioma.
Materials and Methods: We have studied 51 cases of meningioma. Meningioma was diagnosed primarily by contrast enhanced CT Scan and Magnetic Resonence Imaging (MRI) of brain. This was confirmed by histopathological examination. Histopatholgical results were examined according to age and sex distribution, anatomical location of tumor, histological type and WHO grading of tumor. Correlation of clinical features and radiological findings were made with histpathological results.
Results and conclusion: Most of the sufferer was female 34 (67%). The commonest age group was 40-59 years. The commonest site of tumor was convexity of brain 26 (60%). The commonest histopathological type was meningotheliomatous meningioma 20 (39%). The 92% of the meningioma was WHO GRADE I tumor.
Keywords: meningioma, WHO grading of meningioma, prognosis of meningioma
