Carcinomatous Meningitis .
Primary or secondary neoplasm in the ARACHNOID or SUBARACHNOID SPACE. It appears as a diffuse fibrotic thickening of the MENINGES associated with variable degrees of inflammation. .
Arachnoid .
Arachnoid Mater .
Arachnoid Maters .
Arachnoids .
Mater, Arachnoid .
Maters, Arachnoid .
A delicate membrane enveloping the brain and spinal cord. It lies between the PIA MATER and the DURA MATER. It is separated from the pia mater by the subarachnoid cavity which is filled with CEREBROSPINAL FLUID. .
Arachnoiditis .
Arachnoid Membrane Inflammation .
Inflammation, Arachnoid Membrane .
Arachnoid Membrane Inflammations .
Arachnoiditides .
Inflammations, Arachnoid Membrane .
Acute or chronic inflammation of the arachnoid membrane of the meninges most often involving the spinal cord or base of the brain. This term generally refers to a persistent inflammatory process characterized by thickening of the ARACHNOID membrane and dural adhesions. Associated conditions include prior surgery, infections, trauma, SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE, and chemical irritation. Clinical features vary with the site of inflammation, but include cranial neuropathies, radiculopathies, and myelopathies. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1997, Ch48, p25) .
Subarachnoid Space .
Space, Subarachnoid .
Spaces, Subarachnoid .
Subarachnoid Spaces .
The space between the arachnoid membrane and PIA MATER, filled with CEREBROSPINAL FLUID. It contains large blood vessels that supply the BRAIN and SPINAL CORD. .
