What is it about?
Primary intraparenchymal meningiomas exceedingly rare and oftentimes challenging to diagnose, given their misleading radiological features. It is hypothesized that they arise from the cap cells of the pia mater that enter the brain via penetrating blood vessels during brain development. We systematically reviewed and analyzed previously reported features of primary intraparenchymal meningiomas in terms of radiography, presenting symptoms, and histopathology.
