Meningiomas are benign tumors that are found in the cerebral cortex. They pose a risk and can result in death. Technically, the brain falls into the category of tumors, but as it grows, it puts pressure on the brain. Interestingly, meningiomas containing progesterone receptors are therefore more prevalent in women. It has been observed that meningiomas have three stages tumor location, tumor shape, degree of spread, and relapse rate. Meningitis and its treatment are being researched more as technology advances with the current therapy. The review includes the pathophysiology of meningitis, molecular mechanisms, diagnostics, and therapeutic options.
