CASARES D, Jorge et al. Infrequent intraventricular meningioma and review of the literature. Rev. chil. neuro-psiquiatr. [online]. 2011, vol.49, n.4, pp. 361-366. ISSN 0717-9227. doi: 10.4067/S0717-92272011000400007.
Fundaments: Intraventricular meningiomas are rare often histologically benign tumors, especially those arisingfrom the right ventricular trigonal region. Objective: Report an unusual growth of intracranial meningioma. Case report: Authors present a clinical case of a 68 years old female with focal crisis and cephalea. Magnetic Resonance Imaging showed globular small hypo intense mass located in the right trigone. Surgical approach consisted in parietal craniotomy followed by dural opening and resection of the Intraventricular tumor. Post operatory evolution was adequate. Histological diagnosis was fibroblastic meningioma. Discussion: Meningiomas of the right lateral ventricule are rare and not widely reported. Surgical treatment is often successfully performed. Conclusion: Meningiomas of the lateral ventricles can be successfully diagnosed and surgically treated.
Keywords : Intraventricular meningioma; intraventricular surgical approaches.
