Stereotactic radiosurgery for radiation induced meningioma


  • Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is an effective treatment for low-grade radiation induced meningioma.

Why this matters

  • Radiation-induced meningiomas are a late effect of therapeutic radiation, affecting 1 in 5 survivors of acute lymphoblastic leukemia who received cranial radiation.

  • SRS is commonly used to treat sporadic meningioma, however, evidence for its use in radiation-induced meningioma is lacking.
