BACKGROUND: Although there would seem to be a logical relationship between radiolucency around the suture anchor and clinical result in Bankart repair, the correlation has not been demonstrated so far. HYPOTHESIS: Knotless suture anchor is a viable alternative for arthroscopic Bankart repair, but postoperative radiologic findings of radiolucency around anchors ...

Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD) is an idiopathic histiocytic proliferation affecting the lymph nodes. Isolated intracranial RDD is rare and usually appears as a well-defined, dural-based lesion without lymphadenopathy. The clinical and radiological features of intracranial RDD are similar to meningioma. Histopathology and immunohistochemistry are essential for a definitive diagnosis. This is ...

Myxopapillary ependymoma rarely presents as a primary intra-sacral lesion and extensive bony destruction is unusual. Radiological features do not help in distinction from other commoner sacral tumors, like chordoma. Hence, histopathology serves as the best diagnostic modality for this differentiation. We report the case of a 42-year-old man with a ...
