meningitisI got it wrong because I didn't see any apparent Dura mater nor other meninges (The veins aren't being covered by any "shiny layer"), so I thought the tumor was coming from inside the brain and not compressing it like meningiomas usually do. +2019-05-28T04:18:14Z
meningitisBut it did follow the common aspect where they are found in between divisions of brain and are circular growths like a ball.+32019-05-28T04:21:24Z
nala_ulaSince it was basically implied that the patient died and "here look at what this is" I thought it was a malignant tumor (glioblastoma)... but I guess it's all about placement. +42019-06-12T19:25:18Z
htballer55I felt the same way. but if you look at autopsy pics on google, you see the meningioma is like a ball coming out of the meninges.
compare that to glioblastoma which is within the brain in cerebral hemispheres.
so it's mainly one tumor is coming out of the brain and the other is inside the cerebral hemispheres.
that's the best i can come up with. but it's confusing+2019-06-26T22:40:11Z
nutellamedLike many if I had known this information I dont put the wrong answer+2019-10-11T15:21:37Z
masonkingcobraAbove is obviously incorrect because the answer is Meningeal lol.
Here is a link to a good picture:
kernicterusthefrogObviously thomas is disagreeing with the presentation of the question, and I agreed with him! This absolutely sounds like GBM, with rapid onset leading to death, and the symptoms. The question stem leads you to GBM, and the gross image to meningioma (I guess).+12019-06-05T18:11:28Z
kernicterusthefrogFurthermore, where are the meninges on the gross image form which this (meningioma) grew?! It should at least show the tissue from whence it came!+12019-06-05T18:12:48Z
nala_ulaHad the same problem, got confused since it appeared that the growth was malignant :(+2019-06-12T19:26:33Z
sugaplumFA 2019 pg 514, also agree with everyone. weird presentation. Glios are malignant death within 1 year, meningioma are often asymptomatic or have focal signs.
just a gross pathology question at this point+2019-06-24T02:25:09Z
