Abstract: The authors present 20 cases of likely post-traumatic intracranial meningiomas selected according to the conditions specified in the relevant literature. The relationship between head injury and subsequent development of meningioma remains a controversial and fascinating subject. The etiopathogenetic mechanisms and clinical features of our patients and those of the literature are discussed.

“…Regardless of the limited number of recently published reviews of post-traumatic meningiomas, the reviews support the notion of meningioma development at the site of a cranial fracture. [6][7][8] Caroli et al reported that this type of meningioma is more commonly found in the adult population than in the pediatric population. 7 The period from head trauma to diagnosis was reported to be as long as 13 years on average.…”

“…[6][7][8] Caroli et al reported that this type of meningioma is more commonly found in the adult population than in the pediatric population. 7 The period from head trauma to diagnosis was reported to be as long as 13 years on average. A head injury with a severe impact may initiate the development of a meningioma due to the disruption of the arachnoid mater as well as of other structures.…”

“…A carcinogenic agent may interact with different tissues, inducing different tumors [12,13]. Alteration in the microenvironment, such as angiogenesis and inflammation, by the primary tumor could facilitate the growth of metastases from a second primary tumor from another organ [15,16]. Teratoma is a germ cell neoplasm whereas origin of mucinous cystadenoma is explained by metaplasia of the ovarian surface epithelium [11,17].…”
