Abstract

The authors report 14 cases of multiple intracranial meningiomas representing 1.1% of all meningiomas operated on at their hospital in the past 35 years. Differentiation of multiple meningiomas, especially from meningiomatosis, must be strict. Since the introduction of computerized tomography scanning, the frequency of these cases has risen from 0.58% to 4.5% in the authors' meningioma series. Despite the multiplicity of sites, multiple meningiomas do not differ in prognosis from benign solitary meningiomas.
