Although meningiomas are known to cause varying degrees of cerebral edema, the relative importance of their location, size, histological subtype, and other histological features in the production of cerebral edema has not been studied adequately. Therefore, we undertook a retrospective analysis of 43 meningiomas excised between 1975 and 1980. The results indicate that histological subtype has no relationship to the production of cerebral edema, with one exception. Meningiomas containing partly… CONTINUE READING
