Intracranial hemorrhage sparing meningioma in an anticoagulated patient.
J Neuroimaging. 2007 Jul; 17(3):246-50.JN

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE

The risk of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) in patients receiving antithrombotic therapy is well known. However, there is sparse literature regarding the risk of intracerebral hemorrhage in patients receiving warfarin, who have an intracranial meningioma.

METHODS AND RESULTS

We report a case of a 66-year-old man who developed multifocal ICHs in the context of supratherapeutic anticoagulation. There was sparing of the intracranial meningioma despite the development and growth of multiple intraparenchymal hemorrhages that resulted in death. We also review the literature evaluating the risk of ICH in anticoagulated patients with an intracranial meningioma.

CONCLUSIONS

The findings of this case lend further support to the gradually developing notion of relative safety of anticoagulation in patients with meningioma. They also underscore the importance of close monitoring of the INR.
