Nasopharyngeal carcinoma usually presents with enlargement of upper cervical lymph nodes, epistaxis, postnasal discharge, aural symptoms or cranial nerve palsy. Parotid swelling as the first and presenting symptom creates a diagnostic problem to both clinicians and pathologists. The authors report here two such cases to draw attention to this diagnostic ...

Melanotic schwannoma is a rare neoplasm, with only 23 previously reported cases. We report an additional case of a melanotic schwannoma arising from the acoustic nerve in a 74-year-old man who had a probable forme fruste of neurofibromatosis. We briefly review the literature of this neoplasm and discuss theories regarding ...

Embolization to treat intractable epistaxis is becoming increasingly popular. Twelve cases of facial nerve paralysis after embolization of branches of the external carotid artery have been reported. In this paper, a new case is reported. In epistaxis, embolization should be reserved for patients with contraindications to ligation or in emergency ...

This is a case report of a fifty-nine-year-old rheumatoid arthritic woman who developed lack in finger extension bilaterally. These deficits had two completely different aetiologies, Posterior Interosseous Nerve (PIN) Syndrome and extensor tendon rupture. No previous report in the literature has used elbow arthrography as a diagnostic tool in a ...

Endocrine ophthalmopathy is one of the most common space occupying lesions of the orbit. The optic nerve can be involved to varying degrees in the disease. Marked optic neuropathy may be found in cases with normal visual acuity and normal optic nerve head. Perimetry is, therefore, recommended to diagnose or ...

Two siblings born from consanguineous tunisian parents are reported. They showed a severe form of Farber's disease with prominent involvement of the central and peripheral nervous system: low conduction velocity was noticed in both children. Macular cherry red spots were observed in one of them. The diagnosis for the girl ...

Neurinomas of the trigeminal nerve are rare. Based on an analysis of the published cases and on six additional cases of our own classification into three types is proposed: Type I: neurinoma of the roots in the posterior fossa, Type II: neurinoma of the Gasserian ganglion, Type III: neurinoma of ...
Trail I A - - 1985
The case of a fifteen-year-old child where the delay between division and successful repair of the ulnar nerve was nine years is presented. This case and a review of the literature emphasise the importance of repairing nerves in children irrespective of the time interval between division and repair.
Lesser R W - - 1985
A solid parotid mass and an ipsilateral facial weakness is nearly pathognomonic for a malignant parotid neoplasm. There are only a few documented cases in the world's literature of nonmalignant parotid lesions causing facial paralysis. A case is presented of a Warthin's tumor causing a facial palsy. Extensive areas of ...

Some cases of peripheral neuropathy associated with benign IgM monoclonal gammopathy, or Waldenström's macroglobulinemia, are probably of autoimmune origin; in some cases, anti-IgM serum reacts with the myelin sheaths of peripheral nerves. However, mechanisms may differ in other cases. In one case of neuropathy with macroglobulinemia, we found deposits of ...
Arias M J - - 1985
Bilateral traumatic abducens nerve palsy is a rare condition. Here a case without skull fracture and associated with cervical spine fracture is reported. Only two cases like this were found in a review of the literature. The mechanism of the lesion is discussed in light of the two main theories ...

Neurotoxicity is a well-recognized and commonly observed side effect associated with the use of vincristine sulfate in cancer chemotherapy. The clinical manifestations of vincristine neuropathy cover a wide spectrum of peripheral neurologic dysfunctions that have been described to be reversible and cumulative in most instances (1, 2). Paresthesias, loss of ...

The authors describe a case of optic neuropathy in a child undergoing MOPP chemotherapy for Hodgkin's disease stage IIISA. Visual acuity improved after substitution of the aforementioned regimen with ABVD chemotherapy, and reached 1 during maintenance therapy with vinblastine. Various neurologic deficits have been ascribed to vincristine, a well-known neurotoxin. ...

In a review of twelve cases of Friedreich's ataxia, the important criteria for early diagnosis were identified. Clinical signs included absent tendon reflexes, ataxic gait, and a positive Romberg test. Nerve conduction velocities showed absent or severely slowed sensory conduction, with normal motor conduction. In addition, echocardiographic changes of symmetrical ...

Facial paralysis presents an interesting diagnostic challenge. Etiologies ranging from facial nerve neuromas and CPA tumors to inflammatory disease and traumatic injuries need be considered and evaluated. However, an asymmetric facial appearance may result from abnormalities of facial musculature as well as facial innervation. Two cases of congenital hypoplasia of ...

We studied a case of flaccid paraplegia that immediately followed intrathecal injection of cytosine arabinoside diluted in 1.5% bacteriostatic water (1.5% benzyl alcohol in H2O). The complication was reversed by rinsing the CSF space with saline. Autopsy showed fibrosis and remyelination of lumbosacral nerve roots. In acute and chronic animal ...

Silent mastoiditis is a common complication of acute otitis media since the advent of antibiotics. Although most pediatric middle ear inflammations manifest themselves in both ears, otitic facial palsy almost always presents unilaterally. We report an unusual case of bilateral simultaneous facial palsy occurring during the course of a persistent ...

Exostoses in certain situations such as the armpit or the popliteal region, can cause vascular or neurological compression syndromes. Exostoses of the neck of the fibula can in this way produce late paralysis of the peroneal nerve. Two such cases are presented in young patients, in whom the neurological damage ...

Anterior optic pathways gliomas are classifiable histologically and clinically with other pilocytic gliomas of the midline (of hypothalamus and brainstem), especially of childhood. The very slow course, sometimes imperceptible over the years, that characterizes the majority of them should not be taken to mean lack of growth. Tumultuous courses and ...
