The nasal dermoid sinus cyst (NDSC) is an uncommon congenital lesion presenting as a large panel of midline craniofacial anomalies. The objective of this study was to review and reanalyze embryological hypotheses concerning NDSCs and to propose an embryological theory unifying the various anatomical characteristics of these lesions. The first ...

Neurocysticercosis (NCC) is the most common of the parasitic diseases affecting the CNS, with protean clinical manifestations. Stroke as a complication of NCC occurs in a very small percentage of cases, mostly involving small perforating vessels while major intracranial vessel involvement is extremely rare. The present report involves two autopsied ...

This article addresses very large osteochondral lesions of the talus with an osteonecrosis overlap. Six cases are discussed where lesions were deemed too large for osteochondral autograft transfer (OATS) or autologous chondrocyte transplant (ACT). These cases were treated with bulk fresh or fresh frozen matched talus allograft transplantation. The associated ...

This case illustrates the rare association between hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) and Dowling-Degos disease (DDD). Furthermore the association of HS, DDD and multiple epidermal cysts has not to our knowledge been described before, but their coexistence in the same patient is likely to reflect the same follicular anomaly. It is possible ...

Intraspinal cysts are rare, but typically they originate from a degenerate zygapophyseal joint. These cysts have been commonly referred to as juxtafacet cysts and occur concomitantly with lumbar and occasionally lower-limb radicular pain. Documented cases have shown pseudoarthroses developing from nonhealing pars defects. Histologic analyses have found synovial tissue within ...

Accessory ovary is a rare gynecologic condition, and tumors arising in accessory ovaries are extremely rare. Accessory ovary may result from separation of migrating ovaries during embryogenesis and injuries such as inflammation and operation on normal ovary. Congenital malformations, most frequently malformations of the genitourinary organ, are seen in connection ...

Echinococcal disease is infrequently seen in developed countries. In the United States, most cases are imported from endemic areas. Although frequently asymptomatic, enlarging cysts can cause local symptoms. Cysts can rupture spontaneously or as a result of trauma. Optimal management of accidental rupture of echinococcal cysts with little or no ...

For non-communicating hydrocephalus, neuroendoscopic third ventriculostomy has become a major choice. But sometimes, the procedure results in failure. Typically, impairment of a distal CSF absorption, a preexisting arachnoid membrane just below the fenestrated site and a glial scarring of fenestrated site were pointed out as a factors of failure. On ...

The toxicity of the anti-fouling biocides tributyltin (TBTO), copper, and Irgarol 1051 (irgarol) at nominal concentrations ranging from 10 to 10,000 microg l(-1) was investigated against the speed of encystment and successful formation of a protective cyst of the cercariae of Parorchis acanthus. For all biocide exposures, cercariae had a ...

Embryological anomalies of the first branchial cleft are uncommonly encountered. They usually present as cysts, swellings, or fistulas in the pre-auricular or post-auricular area or high in the neck, which may become infected. Failure to recognise these unusual cases may result in misdiagnosis, inadequate treatment, and subsequent recurrence. Further definitive ...

Embryologically, the urachus is the tubular structure that connects the dome of the bladder to the umbilicus. Incomplete obliteration of the urachal lumen results in several anomalies. The most common urachal abnormality is the urachal cyst and, while intraperitoneal rupture of an infected urachal cyst is very rare, acute peritonitis ...

Odontogenic keratocysts (OKC) are keratinizing epithelium-lined cycts of the jaws with well-defined histologic criteria and possessing one clinical feature warranting their recognition and separation as a distinctive entity, due to their exceedingly high recurrence rate. This report describes a case of OKC which occurred in the anterior maxilla in a ...

OBJECT: The prognosis for intraventricular neurocysticercosis (IVNCC) is poorer than that for parenchymal NCC, making prompt diagnosis and treatment especially important. Although active, viable intraventricular cysts produce no reaction in the host; they can cause noncommunicating hydrocephalus, the onset of which is frequently abrupt. With the death of the larva ...
