Gliederung

Text

Meningiomas constitute about 20% of all neoplasms of nervous system. They are benign neoplasms that arise from arachnoid cells. About 2% of all mengiomas are ectopic: they occur outside the cranial cavity without any connection to either an intracranial structure or spinal foramen. Intracranial and extracranial meningiomas are identical histologically.

Meningiomas rarely occur in children. Intracranial and extracranial meningiomas are identical histologically. Because these tumors usually grow slowly, initial symptoms can be very subtle. As the tumor enlarges, the symptoms are directly related to the tumor site and location.

The case of an 8 years boy is presented who has admitted to our hospital for surgery of birth deformity on forehead and nose. On computer tomography (CT) we got information that tumor did not affect tabula externa and it was propagated from forehead to nose in one peace. The tumor was totally removed by transfrontal and transnasal approach. The boy recovered quickly and could be dismissed from our hospital free from any neurological complaints and symptoms. At regular monthly follow- up until 6 months later, CT demonstrated no residuals of the meningioma. The boy is doing well he is incorporated in an schedule of postoperative surveillance, with CT every 5 months.
