Clinical and Pathological Studies of Meningioma-Glioma Mixed Tumor
Abstract: Meningioma-glioma mixed tumor is rare central nervous system tumor. It is necessary to study its clinical and pathological characteristics as well as its possible genesis. This case was a 54-year-old man who was readmitted for recurrent glioma. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a big mass in right temporal lobe which was confirmed as meningioma-glioma by immunohistochemical analysis. Specific immunohistochemical staining is significant in tumor differential diagnosis, and helps to confirm tumor histic origin. By pathological studies, we found that glioma could stimulate adjacent normal meninges into neoplastic proliferation.
