(Meningiomas, Multiple; Meningiomatosis; Benign Meningioma; Malignant Meningioma)
A relatively common neoplasm of the central nervous system
that arises from arachnoidal cells
. The majority are well differentiated vascular tumors which grow slowly and have a low potential to be invasive, although malignant subtypes occur. Meningiomas have a predilection to arise from the parasagittal region, cerebral convexity, sphenoidal ridge, olfactory groove, and spinal canal
. (From DeVita et al., Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, 5th ed, pp2056-7)
