A detailed immunohistochemical and electron microscopic study of a case of clear cell (glycogen-rich) meningioma is presented. The neoplasm recurred three times and the patient died of the disease. The specimens obtained at all three operations showed similar basic histologic patterns. The tumor was comprised mainly of a syncytial, sheet-like proliferation of polygonal cells with clear cytoplasm containing abundant glycogen. The immunohistochemical features included epithelial membrane antigen- and vimentin-positive cytoplasm. The ultrastructural examination revealed distinctive meningocytic cells which contained large amounts of glycogen granules. In addition, the presence of numerous blocky, collagen conglomerations were a conspicuous feature of this tumor. The collagen deposits exhibited intensive immunopositivity for types I, III, IV and VI collagen, and their fine structure suggested the production of the extracellular matrix substance from the contiguous meningothelial cells with well developed Golgi complexes and frequent vesicles near the cell membrane. Proliferating cell nuclear antigen cell kinetics study revealed high labeling index of this neoplasm. The findings for this clear cell (glycogen-rich) meningioma may be useful in the differential diagnosis and treatment of this distinctive subtype of meningioma.
