Which is most common primary cns tumour..astrocytoma or meningioma?
Gliomas are more, which includes astrocytomas but individually meningiomas are more than astro.. Ans would depend on the exact wording of question and options
Thats why i asked que..harrison 18e ..same chapter that writes meningioma 32 per..in the starting of that topic writes gliomas account for 60%..and max of gliomas are astrocytoma
Meningiomas derive from the cells that give rise to the arachnoid granulations. They are now the most common primary brain tumor, accounting for approximately 32% of the total, and occur more commonly in women than men.
These are the lines from herrison 18e sorry for previous wrong answer.
Astrocytoma f/b meningioma
2nd m/c is meningio
