AIM: CT-guided stereotactic methods have long been used for the diagnosis and treatment of intracranial masses. Intracranial tuberculoma is a rare form of extrapulmonary tuberculosis. Histological confirmation is the gold standard for a correct diagnosis. However, histopathological diagnosis and excision of these lesions have advantages over open surgical methods. This ...

BACKGROUND: Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is a life-threatening condition that may present with symptoms and signs identical to idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH). Both conditions consist of increased intracranial pressure (ICP); however, IIH shows no evidence of contributory intracranial pathology. Oral hormonally based contraceptive usage has been associated with both ...

We sought to evaluate whether clinical, lesion-related and procedural factors may predict in-stent restenosis (ISR) after intracranial stenting. Sixty-one Chinese patients with 65 lesions treated with single bare metal balloon-mounted stent for symptomatic intracranial arterial stenosis underwent conventional angiographic follow-up after procedures between March 2004 and July 2009. Clinical, lesion-related ...

Intracranial dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF) is rare and potentially life-threatening disease often presenting as vascular myelopathy. The early and proper diagnosis is challenging because the clinical manifestations are related to the distribution of the draining vein, not the fistula site, and imaging findings are similar to demyelinating disease of the ...

Germ cell tumours (GCT) are a relatively common malignancy in men aged 15-35 years. They occur most frequently in the gonads, but 3-5% have extragonadal origin, mainly in the pineal gland, neurohypophysis, mediastinum and retroperitoneum. Although intracranial germinomas may present with synchronous midline lesions, development of metachronous testicular germ cell ...

Chronic otitis media is a potentially serious disease because of its complications, most of which are common in conjunction with cholesteatomas. There is variance in the terminology used by neurosurgeons, otorhinolaryngologists and neuropathologists. Synonyms for cholesteatoma found in the literature include epidermoid tumor, epidermoid cysts and epithelial inclusion cyst. Intracranial ...

Rosai-Dorfman disease is a common benign lymphomatous disorder that involves the lymph nodes and other solid organs. Neurological involvement is rare, and an isolated intracranial Rosai-Dorfman lesion even rarer. Whether isolated intracranial Rosai-Dorfman lesions should be defined as Rosai-Dorfman disease or intradural histiocytosis remains debatable. Although these intracranial masses may ...

Stereotactic radiosurgery is related to the history of "radiotherapy" and "stereotactic neurosurgery". The concepts for neurosurgeons and radiooncologists have been changed during the last decade and have also transformed neurosurgery. The gamma knife and the stereotactically modified linear accelerator (LINAC) are radiosurgical equipments to treat predetermined intracranial targets through the ...

Intracranial lipomas are rare congenital malformations which are neither hematomas nor true neoplasms. They result from the abnormal persistence and maldifferentiation of the meninx primitiva. The majority of such lesions occur near the midline. Around 55% of intracranial lipomas are associated with brain malformations of varying severity. Although they are ...

Psychiatric diagnosis is invariably guided by self-report. When such self-report is questioned, reliance on formalized testing predominates. The situation is less certain, however, when such methods and clinical "feel", or intuition, conflict. While many argue for the supremacy of actuarial methods, fields such as Management have increasingly emphasized the importance ...
