Abstract

Meningiomas are among the most common primary intracranial tumors. Although the vast majority of these tumors are considered histologically benign, the incidence of complications can be high. Few studies have investigated the causes and risk factors for meningioma; this review highlights the current state of knowledge. Gaining a better understanding of the origin of this disease is essential so that treatments and outcomes can be improved and prevention strategies can be developed.
