Symptom changes caused by movement of a calcified lateral ventricular meningioma: case report

Surg Neurol. 2002 Aug;58(2):128-30. doi: 10.1016/s0090-3019(02)00786-3.


Large calcified psammomatous meningioma in the left lateral ventricle with a long silent interval of 16 years was presented. The symptoms varied by its moving not enlargement, which was described by sequential images of the brain computer tomography. Combined approaches of transcallosal and transinferior temporal sulcus routes were superior to prevent injury of the speech center in the dominant hemisphere.
