Abstract

Our data indicate that male patients and patients with a meningioma that has 22q LOH are more likely to develop tumours exhibiting multiplicity, recurrence or calvarial erosion. We recommend that this subset of patients should be followed up more closely. Further study is needed to determine the benefit of adjuvant radiation therapy in this scenario.
