These two are the first cases over 65 years old cases reported in the literature. The pathological and clinical characteristics of high-dose radio-induced meningiomas are the following: 1) children appear particularly sensitive to the development of this tumor; 2) there is a female patient predominance, in contrast to the male dominance observed in low-dose… CONTINUE READING
