Abstract

Meningiomas are central nervous system (CNS) tumors which are extra-axial and originates from the arachnoid cells of the dura matter. They have annual incidence of 6/100,000, most commonly they present during the fifth and sixth decades of life but rarely in childhood [1-3]. Meningiomas are usually benign, slow growing tumors that occur frequently in female gender and African ethnicity. The female/male ratio is 2:1 and the incidence of meningiomas in post-menopausal women treated with hormone replacement therapy has increased [3-5].
