Abstract

SAMPAIO, Pedro; TELLES, Carlos  and  PARISE, Maud. Olfactory groove meningioma and breast cancer: report of two cases. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 1992, vol.50, n.2, pp. 212-215. ISSN 0004-282X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0004-282X1992000200015.

Two cases of olfactory groove meningiomas are presented in patients with breast cancer. Predominance of breast cancer and meningiomas in the age decades of the forties and the fifties, presence of steroid hormones receptors in both and prevalence of meningiomas in women are referred as significant correlations. Examination of the breast of women with meningiomas is recommended. Tomographic images are sometimes atypical, and a surgical intervention may be necessary.

Keywords : olfactory groove; breast; meningioma; cancer; tumor association.
