The overall incidence of meningiomas, particularly in the developed countries, is rising due to a growing size of the aging population, with people living longer and enjoying healthier lives than ever before. Additionally, an increased utilization of imaging studies such as computer tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) for routine evaluation of closed head injuries, paranasal sinus problems and various non-specific neurological symptoms, ranging from headaches to dizziness, has contributed to enhanced detection of incidental meningiomas.

The book contains the most up-to-date information in all matters related to meningiomas, and is written by multiple contributors - internationally recognized experts in their respective fields from Asia, USA and Europe.

This is an essential reference guide to neurosurgeons and neurologists (in training and in practice), as well as medical libraries, throughout the world.

From the reviews:

"The purpose of this book is to teach young neurosurgeons how to recognize, investigate, and operate upon meningiomas in diverse locations. Neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuro-interventionalists, and radiologists are the main audience for this book. … This is an excellent book for neurosurgeons, ENT surgeons, oncologists, neuro-oncologists, radiologists, and neurologists."
