Progestin-related WHO grade II meningiomas behavior-a single-institution comparative case series.

Résumé

WHO grade II progestin-related meningiomas have been reported in recent series but we found no previous study describing their long-term outcome. Our study aimed to evaluate patients operated on for high-grade intracranial meningioma and who underwent long-term exposure to high dose of cyproterone acetate, nomegestrol acetate, and chlormadinone acetate. Our study retrospectively included 9 patients with high-grade progestin-related intracranial meningioma between December 2006 and September 2021. In each patient, clinico-radiological follow-up was performed every 6 months after diagnosis and treatment withdrawal recommendation. The mean progestative exposure was 11.4 years. Edema existence or absence of cleft sign on MRI were the key factors for surgical indication. All patients underwent surgery. Adjuvant radiotherapy was indicated in 1 patient, and Gamma Knife radiosurgery was proposed in 2 other patients for a second location of meningioma. Six patients harbored a grade II chordoid meningioma subtype with 100% PR expression and 3 patients a grade II atypical meningioma subtype with lower PR expression. The mean follow-up was 8.1 years and none of the 9 patients presented with a recurrence. Patients with grade II progestin-related meningiomas have less tumor recurrence after surgery than patients with sporadic grade II meningiomas, especially after progestin withdrawal. The presence/appearance of peri-meningioma edema and the absence of cleft sign before volumetric change should suggest the existence of an underlying WHO grade II meningiomas. In these cases, surgical resection may immediately be considered and adjuvant radiotherapy should be reserved for proven recurrence cases.
