RESUMO

Os autores rebatam dois casos de meningioma da goteira olfativa em pacientes com câncer da mama. Referem três eventualidades que ocorrem em ambas as neoplasias: período etário predominante entre quinta e sexta décadas; presença em ambas de receptores de hormônios esteróides; e predominância do sexo feminino entre os meningiomas. Recomendam exame das mamas em mulheres com meningiomas e especulam sobre a possibilidade futura de tratamento hormonal coadjuvante para estes tumores. As imagens tomográficas feitas para controle pós-operatório ou quando aparecem sintomas neurológicos nem sempre diferenciam metástases de meningiomas, daí, às vezes, necessidade de verificação cirúrgica.

Palavras-chave: goteira olfativa, mama, meningioma, câncer, associação de tumores.


SUMMARY

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.

Key words: olfactory groove, breast, meningioma, cancer, tumor association.
