2A01.0/C69-C72 Meningiomas



The exact cause of meningiomas is not yet known, but some factors are believed to play a role. These include a family history of the condition, exposure to radiation, and certain genetic syndromes.


Meningiomas are typically diagnosed based on a combination of medical history, physical examination, and imaging tests, such as MRI and CT scans.

Differential diagnosis

Other conditions that may be considered in the differential diagnosis of meningiomas include brain tumors, such as gliomas, metastatic tumors, and other types of neoplasms.


Treatment of meningiomas usually involves surgical removal. In some cases, radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy may be used in addition to surgery.


The prognosis for meningiomas depends on the size and location of the tumor, as well as the patient’s age and overall health. In general, most meningiomas are considered benign and have a high chance of successful treatment and cure.
