Many factors have been suggested as possible mechanisms for the development of peritumoural oedema in meningioma. Venous compression by the tumour is thought to be one factor, but reports presenting a direct relationship between venous compression and the formation of oedema are rare. We have recently observed 6 meningioma patients in whom venous stasis contributed to peritumoural oedema. The stasis was due to 1) compression of an adjacent cortical vein by the tumour with stasis at the site of… CONTINUE READING
