Resection of multiple pulmonary metastases from a recurrent intracranial meningioma

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Surgical resection of multiple pulmonary metastases from a recurrent intracranial meningioma in a 53-year-old woman is presented. The primary tumor was diagnosed in 1984 and partially excised in early 1985. The tumor recurred and was re-excised in 1989 and 1992. A fourth intracranial recurrence was noted in 1993, accompanied by multiple bilateral pulmonary metastases. The metastases were excised using staged thoracotomies in July and September 1994. The patient is surviving with cranial tumor residual.
