1Eskişehir Yunus Emre Devlet Hastanesi, Beyin ve Sinir Cerrahisi Kliniği, Eskişehir Meningiomas are usually benign and mostly occur spontaneously. Viral infections, chronic inflammation, radiation, genetic factors, endogenous hormone or growth factor stimulation or trauma are very rare in the aetiology of meningiomas. Harvey Cushing was the first person to suggest that meningiomas occurred with meningeal irritation following trauma in calvarium.
