Orbital Tumors - Sphenoid Wing Meningioma

Meningioma

A meningioma is a benign brain tumor. It originates from the dura mater, the tissue enwrapping the brain and spinal cord. Meningiomas are much more common in females, and are more common after 50 years of age. Of all cranial meningiomas, about 20% of them are in the sphenoid wing. In some cases, deletions involving chromosome 22 are involved.
