Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Meningiomas of Meckel's cave are unusual. Forty-six cases of this tumor are described in the literature and two others are reported in this paper. Symptomatology frequently begins with typical or atypical trigeminal neuralgia; when no other signs are associated, diagnosis of the tumor is difficult. Total removal of the tumor results in a complete relief of symptoms, and no other therapy for pain is necessary.
