Case report: nasal meningothelial meningioma


Abstract: Meningiomas are the most common primary brain tumors nowadays. They arise from the dura mater being composed of neoplastic meningothelial cells. Their incidence increases with age, being more common in women and occurring more commonly in people with previous history of cranial irradiation, being their extracranial variant a rare event and of pathogenesis still uncertain. The present study analyzes the case of a 46-year-old female patient who was admitted to Santa Casa de Montes Claros Hospital on June 29th, 2018 after resection of a nasal lesion and anatomopathological study with a result compatible with grade I meningioma. The study also approaches the characteristics and classifications of meningiomas, as well as their clinical and therapeutic repercussions. It also pervades the diagnostic criteria and an analysis of the signs and symptoms referring to the nasal extracranial presentation, which applies to the patient reported in the present case.
