PMID:  4058634     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The management of intracavernous meningiomas remains controversial. The variety of methods of treatment reflects the difficulty of treating primary meningiomas of the cavernous sinus. Twelve personal cases and a review of the literature permit a choice between a direct surgical approach with or without radiotherapy, only radiation therapy or with no therapy. We think therefore that meningiomas of the cavernous sinus should nowadays be the subject of a surgical biopsy followed by radiotherapy according to their grading.
