Nine cats and one dog with intracranial meningioma, which underwent surgery at the Department of Veterinary Surgery, University of Munich, Germany were evaluated retrospectively. One cat died shortly after surgery whereas the remaining 9 animals survived between 8 to 43 months (mean, 21.9 months) after surgery. Relapse was seen in 2 cats shortly after surgery and these animals were re-operated. After surgery, computed tomography was performed to ascertain that the tumour was completely removed. Pre-operative symptoms disappeared rapidly after surgery, except central blindness which persisted. Initial clinical observations and results of in vitro studies using feline meningioma cells indicated that hydroxy-urea can prolong survival time of affected animals.
