What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope

Alternative Cancer Treatment Testimonial from Cindy

What is Leptomeningeal Metastases?

Beating cancer starts with arming yourself with essential information.

The leptomeninges are the membranes lining the spinal cord and brain. The inner two meninges, which doctors refer to as arachnoid and the pia mater, circulates the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Cancer in this location has different names, including leptomeningeal metastases (LM), carcinomatous meningitis, and neoplastic meningitis. Cancer cells may metastasize (spread) from other parts of the body through the blood vessels, or directly from the bones of the spine.

Leptomeningeal metastases are uncommon, but they are serious complications of cancer, including melanoma, breast cancer, and lung cancer. In the United States, as little as 1 to as much as 8 percent of cancer patients are diagnosed with leptomeningeal disease each year, with approximately 110,000 cases per year.

Symptoms of Leptomeningeal Metastases

Signs of leptomeningeal metastases result from cancer cells blocking the normal exits for CSF, which causes fluid buildup and increased pressure in the brain. As such, someone with LM may have one or more of these symptoms:

  • Persistent headaches
  • Vision changes
  • Nausea
  • Difficulty speaking or swallowing
  • Difficulty thinking
  • Lack of coordination in your arms and legs
  • Seizures
  • Loss of bladder or bowel control

LM can also disturb nerves exiting the brain, causing:

  • Pain
  • Numbness
  • Weakness

Speak with your doctor if you notice any changes in your health and body. Although having one or more of these symptoms does not always mean you have LM, they could indicate a different health concern, including:

  • Brain metastases
  • Bacterial meningitis
  • Viral meningitis
  • Fungal meningitis
  • Toxic or metabolic encephalopathy
  • Epidural or extramedullary spinal metastases
  • Paraneoplastic Syndromes
  • Sarcoidosis

Diagnostic Tests for Leptomeningeal Metastases

Early diagnosis is key to improving your LM prognosis and life expectancy. The following tests play a role in determining if you have leptomeningeal metastases:

  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
  • Lumbar puncture or spinal tap
  • Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow study
