In this country radiation-induced meningiomas were usually associated with low-dose irradiation of the scalp of immigrants from North Africa, given as part of the treatment of tinea capitis. An Ashkenazi patient developed meningiomas 15 years after high-dose irradiation for a benign lesion in the parasellar region. The accumulating literature about high-dose radiation-induced meningiomas is reviewed and attention is drawn to the ever increasing number of meningiomas observed in immigrants from the former Soviet Union.
