Sažetak

 

Meningeomi su klinički i histološki benigne, solitarne mekotkivne promene, najčešće lokalizovane intrakranijalno. U ovom izlaganju, predstavljamo neuobičajene slučajeve ekstrakranijalnih meningeoma lokalizovanih u temporalnoj kosti kao svojevrstan dijagnostički izazov. Pacijenti su bili hospitalizovani radi razjašnjenja etiologije levostrane glavobolje praćene vrlo specifičnim otološkim simptomima: istostranim gubitkom sluha, zujanjem i osećajem punoće u uvu. Tokom dijagnostičkih procedura, neočekivani nalazi su otkriveni kontrasnom kompjuterizovanom tomografijom (CT) temporalne kosti i potvrdjeni histopatološkom analizom kao meningeomi. U dodatku će biti razmotrene kliničke, radiološke i patohistološke karakteristike ekstrakranijalnih meningeoma.

Abstract

 

Meningiomas are clinically and histologically benign, solitary and soft tissue neoplasms, most commonly localized intracranially. In this report we present unusual cases of extracranial meningiomas localized in temporal bone as a sort of diagnostic challenge. Patients were addmited in order to clarify etiology of their left-sided headaches, which were followed by very specific otologic symptoms: same sided gradual hearing loss, tinnitus and feeling of ear fullness. During the diagnostic procedures, unexpected findings were revealed by contrasted computerized tomography (CT) of temporal bones and confirmed by histopathological analysis as meningiomas. In addition clinical, radiological and pathohistological characteristics of extracranial meningiomas and their differential diagnosis will be considered.

 

Key words:

Meningioma; Extracranial tumors; Hearing loss; Tinnitus; Headache
