Abstract

Meningiomas are the most frequent met intracranial tumors. Many
authors tried to order them according to location, origin and histopatologic type. Material and
method: Our study is focused on posterior fosa meningiomas, initially classified according to
their origin based on IRM and surgical findings in order to identify correlations between
demographic data, topographic tumor origin and anatomopathologic characteristics for each
subgroup. 35 posterior fosa meningioma patients that have been subject to neurosurgery in Iaºi
Prof.Dr. N. Oblu Hospital Neurosurgery Clinic between January 1st 2005 and December 1st
2009 were assessed. Results: In our study group the majority of patients were females, with
an average age in their early 60s. Benign meningiomas (Ist degree) represented the unique
subtype in tumors located in cerebelum convexity and foramen magnum. Other locations have
different chracteristic subtypes (fibrous vs. angiomatous meningioma).
