The phenomenon of tumor-to-tumor metastasis has been reported in the literature for over a century. However, it remains fairly uncommon, with fewer than 100 cases being described during that time. Virtually any benign or malignant tumor can be a recipient, but meningiomas have been implicated as the most common intracranial neoplasm to harbor metastasis. The donor neoplasm is most frequently lung or breast carcinoma, while rare cases of metastasis from other primary tumors have been reported… CONTINUE READING
