We report the results of cytogenetic analyses of three cases of meningiomas. The first case, a papillary meningioma, showed only one cytogenetic abnormality, 46,XX,t(1;4)(q44;q21). In contrast, the other two benign fibroblastic meningiomas showed loss of chromosome 22. Loss and/or rearrangement of chromosomes other than chromosome 22 appears to be associated with a more aggressive clinical course. It is suggested that a sole cytogenetic abnormality with a normal chromosome 22 indicates an atypical nature of meningioma.
