BACKGROUND Cranio-spinal axis teratomas are rare. This subset is interesting because symptoms can be varied, depending on the location. Histopathology is diagnostic; most of the lesions are benign. Rarely, malignancy develops in any of the somatic components. AIMS To study the demographic, clinico-morphological and follow-up data of central nervous system(More)
OBJECTIVE To report three patients with isolated Rosai Dorfman disease of the central nervous system. CASE REPORTS We report two patients with dural-based lesions diagnosed imageologically as meningiomas, and one patient with multiple intraparenchymal lesions diagnosed imageologically as lymphoma. Two patients were males and one was female. All were above(More)
Three hundred and ten people with cerebral palsy who had spasticity in one or more limbs underwent selective motor fasciculotomy (SMF) of the nerves supplying the harmful spastic muscles with the aim of achieving useful tone and to improve voluntary movements. Among them, 52 people (average age 9.5 years) had 75 spastic elbows who were considered fit cases(More)
Multiple intracranial aneurysms located bilaterally in the anterior circulation are usually clipped sequentially by separate craniotomies or a bilateral craniotomy. However, in selected patients, bilateral aneurysms can be clipped on both sides in a single sitting through a unilateral approach and unilateral craniotomy without causing morbidity. We present(More)
BACKGROUND Lymphomatoid granulomatosis [LYG] is an angiocentric, angiodestructive disease at the higher grade end of the spectrum of angiocentric immunoproliferative lesions. It primarily involves the lungs, but it may also involve several extrapulmonary sites including the central nervous system (CNS), skin, and kidneys. CASE DESCRIPTION Clinical(More)
Intramedullary tumors of the spinal cord in childhood are usually of low grades (grades I and II) and are most commonly seen in the cervical and cervicothoracic regions. They present with symptoms and signs of spinal cord tumor. It is uncommon to find an anaplastic astrocytoma situated in the thoracolumbar segment of the spinal cord. Whereas papilledema and(More)
Hemangiopericytomas (HPC) of the central nervous system (CNS) are uncommon dural-based tumors that mimic meningiomas clinically and radiologically. Because there are few reports about these tumors from India, we aimed to study the clinico-pathological and immunohistochemical features of CNS HPC. During 2000 to 2008 all 23 patients diagnosed with HPC of CNS(More)
BACKGROUND Meningiomas represent about 30% of primary adult central nervous system tumors. Though slow growing, they recur, causing significant morbidity and mortality. OBJECTIVE The objective of the following study is to grade meningiomas according to World Health Organization (WHO) 2007 criteria and to correlate the grade with degree of expression of(More)
