Two cases are reported of a newly described intraosseous entity of vertebral bodies deemed "giant notochordal hamartoma of intraosseous origin". This entity is commonly mistaken for chordoma and must be distinguished from it as the consequences of misinterpretation may be serious. The clinical, radiological and histologic criteria that can be ...

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: Radiology residents often experience the case-based teaching conference as an inquisition, during which the moderator painfully extracts observations, conclusions, and facts from a discussant while other attendees passively observe. This experience is frequently disliked by all participants. The author hypothesized that such conferences could be improved by ...

OBJECTS: Clinical symptoms and signs of increased intracranial pressure (ICP) may be nonspecific and unreliable, or even entirely absent, in hydrocephalic infants and children. Even with a radiological examination, it is often difficult to distinguish between "arrested hydrocephalus" and slowly progressive hydrocephalus requiring treatment. METHODS: We present two cases with ...

An unusual case of a desmoplastic fibroma of the temporal bone is presented. Although classified benign, this intraosseous lesion exhibits local aggressiveness and has a high potential for recurrence. This rare condition occurs predominantly in the mandible and in the long bones and is seldom seen in the calvarium. Here ...

A patient with extensive bilateral auricular ossification presented with chondrodermatitis nodularis helicis on one side. The condition was otherwise asymptomatic. Ossification was detected on radiological and histological examination. Underlying medical conditions were not found. We believe this developed as a consequence of cold injury. Auricular ossification is an unusual cause ...
