32 Possible Causes for Cranial Nerve Involvement, Diplopia, Spinal Canal and Spinal Cord Meningioma

  • Meningioma

    Radiation therapy to the brain and/or spinal cord/canal, for some other disease process, has been implicated in subsequent Meningioma formation, especially in children.[neurosurgerydallas.com] A 33-year-old female patient presented with diplopia and left eye ptosis 26 weeks into her first pregnancy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient did not have any features suggestive of cranial nerve involvement.
