Meningioangiomatosis (MA) is a rare benign, hamartomatous lesion within the leptomeninges and cerebral cortex. Three percent of intractable epileptic patients with tumor develop MA. It may be accompanied with neurofibromatosis type II, or it may occur sporadically. Three patients, age range of 2-16 years old, presented with episodes of seizure. The patients demonstrated no family history or stigmata of neurofibromatosis type II. Electroencephalogram (EEG) was unremarkable for epileptiform activity. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed enhancing lesions within the frontal gyrus, the anterior cingulate gyrus, and the parietal lobe...

Meningioangiomatosis is regarded as a rare benign hamartomatous condition mostly involving the cerebral cortex and overlying leptomeninges. A strong association of MA with neurofibromatosis type 2 has been documented in published articles. Herein we report a case of an otherwise healthy 13-year-old boy with no family history or stigmata of neurofibromatosis who presented with intractable seizures. MRI revealed a 2x2 cm mass lesion in the frontal lobe. The patient underwent complete surgical resection of the lesion...

An intra-axial tumor measuring about 4 cm was excised from the right temporal lobe of a 35-year-old woman, who had a past history of resection of craniopharyngioma and postoperative radiation 21 years earlier. The tumor involved both the cortex and white matter, but was not attached to the dura mater. It consisted of a dense, interlacing, fascicular proliferation of atypical fibroblastic cells and was associated with an extensive, lace-like, desmoplastic change mainly involving the perivascular region around the tumor and overlying the subarachnoid space...

BACKGROUND: Meningioangiomatosis (MA) is a rare meningiovascular malformation or hamartomatous lesion in the central nervous system. Radiographic findings of MA may show a variety of characteristics according to different histological components. We present three cases of sporadic MA with different imaging appearances in an attempt to identify specific imaging characteristics. CASE PRESENTATION: In case 1, an irregular hyperdense solid mass was localized in the left middle cranial fossa, demonstrating low and equal signal intensity on T1-weighted imaging (T1WI; TR/TE 2,048...

BACKGROUND: Meningioangiomatosis (MA) is a rare cerebral lesion. Sporadic MA occasionally combines with meningioma (MA-M). The aim of the present study was to clarify whether MA-M and pure MA have clinical differences and to determine risk factors for unsatisfactory seizure outcomes in sporadic MA. METHODS: We reported 14 sporadic MA cases in our center and conducted a literature review. We compared the demographic, clinical, imaging, electrophysiological and pathological features and surgical outcomes...

The neuroradiological features of meningioangiomatosis (MA) are non-specific. We report a young man with sporadic MA. The plain computerized tomography (CT) demonstrated a deep located right cystic lesion without calcification. On magnetic resonance imaging, the cystic mass lesion was confirmed with a mural nodule with significant enhancement on contrast-enhanced images.

Meningioangiomatosis is a rare, benign, developmental, or hamartomatous lesion which may involve the leptomeninges and underlying brain parenchyma. Histologically, meningioangiomatosis is marked by a proliferation of blood vessels in the parenchyma, rimmed by collars of spindled meningothelial cells. There are anecdotal reports of an association of meningioangiomatosis with focal cortical dysplasia. We retrospectively analyzed the clinical, histopathologic, and treatment outcomes of 16 patients with a diagnosis of meningioangiomatosis, specifically investigating these cases for evidence of adjacent focal cortical dysplasia...

"Solitary" meningioangiomatosis (MA) is a rare, benign, hamartomatous lesion of the cerebral cortex and frequently leads to epilepsy. However, the source of the epileptogenicity in meningioangiomatosis remains controversial. We report two surgically-treated meningioangiomatosis cases with medically intractable epilepsy. In both cases, chronic subdural electrocorticogram (ECoG) recordings identified the ictal onset zone on apparently normal cortex, adjacent to and/or above the meningioangiomatosis lesion, not on the meningioangiomatosis lesion itself...

We describe to our knowledge the first case of meningioangiomatosis identified in a second trimester fetus. A 30-year-old pregnant woman was attended at our hospital for a second-trimester ultrasound screening scan. With a diagnosis of partial agenesis of the corpus callosum, the parents requested termination of the pregnancy. At autopsy, frontal serial sections of the fetal brain disclosed a short corpus callosum that lacked the posterior splenium, confirming the sonographic diagnosis. At close inspection, a slight bilateral hardening of both medial aspects of the frontal lobes and anterior genu of the corpus callosum was found associated with meningeal adhesion between both frontal lobes...

BACKGROUND: Meningioangiomatosis (MA) is a rare hamartomatous lesion. Only six cases of cystic MA have been reported in the literature. CASE PRESENTATION: We present a case of multicystic MA. A 21-year-old woman without any stigmata of neurofibromatosis type 2 presented with intractable seizures since 10 years. Brain magnetic resonance imaging revealed a well-defined, multicystic mass with heterogeneous signal intensity in the right temporal lobe. The patient underwent resection of the lesion and of the epileptogenic cortex under intraoperative electrocorticography (ECoG) assistance...

INTRODUCTION: Meningioangiomatosis (MA) is a rare benign cerebral lesion. We aimed to evaluate the CT and MR features of sporadic MA, with a focus on the correlation between imaging and histopathologic findings. METHODS: CT (n = 7) and MR (n = 8) images of eight patients (6 men and 2 women; mean age, 12.8 years; range, 4-22 years) with pathologically proven MA were retrospectively reviewed. After dividing the MA lesions according to their distribution into cortical and subcortical white matter components, the morphologic characteristics were analyzed and correlated with histopathologic findings in seven patients...

Meningioangiomatosis (MA) represents a vascular hamartoma accompanied by meningothelial cell proliferation. It generally becomes symptomatic with difficult to control seizures, though in some patients it may be asymptomatic. We present the case of a 41-year-old male patient with a newly developed central distal monoparesis of the left leg. Cranial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and further diagnostic characterization via (18)F-Fluoro-Ethyl-Tyrosine positron emission tomography ((18)F-FET-PET) indicated a low-grade glioma...

Meningioangiomatosis consists of benign hamartomatous lesions of the brain and the leptomeninges, which typically present with seizure. Management is predicated on resection and control of seizures with medication. Lesions are typically solitary. Multifocal meningioangiomatosis is extremely rare, with only 2 cases reported in adults and none in children. The authors report the first case, to their knowledge, of multifocal meningioangiomatosis in a child. This unique case highlights therapeutic challenges associated with these lesions and demonstrates that multifocality is possible in the pediatric population...
