Electronic medical record (EMR) systems have the potential to improve reporting of notifiable diseases beyond either traditional clinician-initiated or automated laboratory-based reporting systems. Traditional clinician-initiated passive surveillance is burdensome to clinicians and often incomplete and delayed. Electronic laboratory reporting addresses these limitations but often lacks information needed for public health ...

Developmental venous anomalies (DVAs), cavernous malformations, and capillary telangiectasias are related vascular malformations of the central nervous system. Mixed lesions of the central nervous system vasculature have been reported in a host of combinations, including many possible concomitant combinations of cavernous malformations, venous anomalies, capillary telangiectasias, and arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). ...

Nodular primary localized cutaneous amyloidosis (NPLCA) has been associated with progression to systemic amyloidosis. The reported estimate of 50% progression to systemic amyloidosis has come under scrutiny as recent studies have suggested a significantly lower rate. Still, it is essential to consider systemic amyloidosis after making the diagnosis of NPLCA ...

Hemangioblastomas are rarely found in a supratentorial location and are commonly associated with the von Hippel-Lindau complex. Therefore, patients with such tumors must be evaluated for both other hemangioblastomas within the central nervous system as well as for this complex via physical examination, radiographic examination, and genetic testing. We report ...
