Atypical and Malignant Meningioma: Advances in Pathophysiology, Imaging and Treatment

About this Research Topic

The clinical and surgical management of atypical and malignant meningiomas is still controversial. Despite the combination of surgery, radiation therapy and medical therapy, these tumors present a significant risk for recurrence, potentially leading to unfavorable prognosis.

The goal of the present Research Topic is to elucidate radiological, genetic, histological and molecular features underlying the biological and clinical behavior of atypical and malignant meningiomas as well as their response to different therapeutic options. Moreover, the goal of the issue is to present new therapeutic approaches and improvements of conventional techniques, with promising impact on patients’ outcome.

Topic editors will welcome contributions about, but not limited to:
• Radiological features of atypical and malignant meningiomas
• Molecular, histological and genetic mechanisms of tumor recurrence, proliferation, resistance to treatment
• New therapeutic approaches and improvements of conventional treatments
• The issue will include clinical trials, large retrospective series and systematic reviews




Keywords: Atypical and Malignant Meningioma


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
