|Title:||Malignant melanoma metastatic to a meningioma|
|Citation:||Pathology, 1999; 31(2):162-165|
|Abstract:||The case presented is that of a 63 year old man with a metastasis to an intracranial meningioma from a malignant melanoma. Although the phenomenon of tumor to tumor metastasis to a meningioma has been previously reported, this is the first case in the literature to date, in which the primary tumor is a malignant melanoma. The criteria for the diagnosis of tumor-to-tumor metastasis and possible reasons for the frequency of metastasis to meningiomas are briefly reviewed.|
