Intracranial meningioma

AJNR Am J Neuroradiol. 1992 Jan-Feb;13(1):29-37.


This case shows many of the imaging features classically associated with meningiomas. The illustrations show common location, shape, and local effects as well as enhancement characteristics. Hyperostosis and bone destruction, a fluid "cleft" surrounding the extraaxial mass, gray-white interface displacement, and secondary intraparenchymal changes are correlated with gross pathology findings. These key features are summarized in Table 1 and the composite anatomic diagram (Fig. 6).
