Type of bony involvement predicts genomic subgroup in sphenoid wing meningiomas.

J Neurooncol 2021 Sep 4;154(2):237-246. Epub 2021 Aug 4.

Department of Neurosurgery, Yale School of Medicine, 15 York St, LLCI 810, New Haven, CT, 06520-8082, USA.

Progression-Free Survival, Prognostic Factors, and Surgical Outcome of Spheno-Orbital Meningiomas.

Front Oncol 2021 4;11:672228. Epub 2021 Jun 4.

Department of Neurosurgery, Medical Center - University of Freiburg, Freiburg, Germany.

Objective: Spheno-orbital meningiomas (SOM) are rare intracranial tumors that arise at the sphenoid wing. These tumors can invade important neurovascular structures making radical resection difficult, while residual tumors often lead to recurrence. The purpose of this study was to evaluate prognostic factors influencing the recurrence and progression-free survival (PFS) rates of spheno-orbital meningiomas, with a particular focus on the role of surgery and postoperative radiotherapy.

Breast Cancer Metastasis Mimicking Meningioma in 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT.

Clin Nucl Med 2021 Nov;46(11):922-923

Nuclear Medicine, University Hospital, LMU Munich, Munich, Germany.

Abstract: 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT is a reliable imaging modality in the diagnosis and therapy planning of symptomatic meningiomas. We present a case of a 74-year-old woman where a supposed SSTR-positive sphenoid wing meningioma turned out to be a breast cancer metastasis. Our case shows that dural metastases from breast cancer might represent a clinical pitfall in 68Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT. Read More

Using Cranial Sutures in a Single-Step Frame-Guided Resection and Reconstruction for Intraosseous Meningiomas: Technical Note.

World Neurosurg 2021 07 22;151:44-51. Epub 2021 Apr 22.

Department of Neurosurgery, Instituto de Neurologia de Curitiba, Curitiba, Paraná, Brazil.

Background: Single-stage surgical treatment of cranial intraosseous meningiomas includes complete tumor resection followed by aesthetic reconstruction. Tailored tumor resection with a computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing custom-made implant for the defect has been advocated in recent years to achieve a satisfactory cosmetic result with reduced operative time and fewer complications. However, several technical nuances related to the area of osseous removal may compromise cranioplasty. Read More

Spheno-orbital Lesions-A Major Review of Nonmeningioma Causes.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2021 Nov-Dec 01;37(6):522-533

Orbital Plastic and Lacrimal Clinic, Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital.

Purpose: To review the imaging features of the broad range of nonmeningioma lesions of the greater wing of the sphenoid (GWS) bone and adjacent orbit to assist clinicians in differentiating these lesions from each other and from the most common lesion of the GWS and adjacent orbit, meningioma.

Methods: We reviewed 32 cases of spheno-orbital lesions involving the GWS from our own practice, as well as 109 published cases (total 141), with emphasis on available imaging features on computerized tomography (CT) and MRI. Features that might assist in differentiating meningioma from its mimics were analyzed for each lesion, including the presence of an osteoblastic or hyperostotic response, bone erosion or osteolysis, homogeneous hypo- or hyperintensity on T2-weighted MRI, leptomeningeal involvement, and the absence of a "dural tail" on contrast-enhanced MRI.
