Résumé

Le méningiome chordoïde est une variante rare de méningiome, souvent confondue avec le chordome et doté d'un haut potentiel de récidive. Le but de ce travail est d'étudier, en revoyant la littérature, les particularités anatomocliniques de cette entité. Nous rapportons deux nouveaux cas de méningiome chordoïde survenus chez deux femmes âgées de 47 et 63 ans respectivement. Elles étaient hospitalisées pour des signes neurologiques sans signes systémiques. Le bilan radiologique a objectivé des lésions de siège temporo-pariétal et temporo-frontal, se rehaussant intensément après injection du produit de contraste. Une résection chirurgicale totale a été réalisée. L'examen anatomopathologique montrait un aspect typique de méningiome chordoïde.

Abstract
Abstract

Chordoid meningioma is an uncommon histopathological variant of meningioma frequently confused with chordoma. Recurrence is not uncommon. The aim of our study is to present the clinical and pathological characteristics of this entity and a review of the literature. We report two cases of chordoid meningioma occurring in two women aged 47 and 63 years. Both women presented neurological signs without systemic disease. Radiological findings were temporoparietal and temporofrontal lesions with intense enhancement after contrast injection. Complete surgical resection was performed. Histopathologic findings were consistent with chordoid meningioma.
