angiomatous meningioma

Sunday 21 January 2007

The term angiomatous is applied to the subgroup of meningiomas, in which numerous vessels prevail on the background of an otherwise typical meningioma.

Such extremely vascularized meningiomas are rarely encountered. It is a generally held belief that the term angiomatous is more a descriptor than a diagnosis and has no prognostic or any other clinical significance.
