Profile of meningioma patients at Prof. Dr. Margono Soekarjo General Hospital, Purwokerto, Banyumas, Central Java

Abstract

Introduction: Meningiomas are the most common primary brain tumors with a percentage of 36.4% of all primary central nervous system tumors and 14.3 – 19% of all intracranial tumors. Meningiomas are benign and slow-growing tumors. Meningioma occurred in females more often than in males.

Methods: We collected data from medical records retrospectively from all meningioma patients who were operated on and examined with anatomical pathology in Prof. Dr. Margono Soekarjo General Hospital, from January 2020 to December 2021. Data collected were gender, age, place of origin, location of meningioma, and clinical manifestations. 

Results: A total of 180 patients were diagnosed with meningioma from January 2020 – December 2021. Meningioma occurred in females more often than in males (female:male = 8.78:1). The peak incidence was in 41 to 50 years old (46.67%). The place of origin was mostly from Banyumas (25.56%). The location of tumors was mostly convexity (31.67%), followed by sphenoid (16.11%), and parasagittal (8.89%). The most common clinical manifestation was headache (93.33%), followed by visual impairment (49.44%), and motor paresis (26.11%)

Conclusion: Meningioma occurred in females more often than in males and the peak incidence was age 41 to 50 years old. Tumors were located mostly on convexity and the most common clinical manifestation was headache.
