Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A case of metastasis from breast carcinoma found within a cerebral meningioma is reported. Histological diagnosis of the cerebral tumor prompted radiological investigation that visualized the asymptomatic malignant systemic tumor and excluded other metastases elsewhere. The pathogenetic aspects of this exceptional occurence are discussed in the light of the relevant literature.
