Multiple meningiomas in the spinal canal

Surg Neurol. 1980 Jan;13(1):78-80.


Previous experimental and clinical observations suggest that radiation is a causative factor in the development of meningiomas. We report a rare case of three spinal meningiomas in a patient who had prior irradiation in the spinal region. The myelographic technique to evaluate multiple spinal canal tumors is outlined.
