An entity of episodic true vertigo of delayed onset following sudden and profound sensorineural hearing loss is described. Data on 12 patients and three case reports are presented. The latency between sudden deafness and the onset of the vertigo varied from 1 to 68 years. The vestibular symptoms are identical to the vestibular symptoms of Ménière's disease,(More)
Extramammary Paget’s disease (EMPD) is a rare intraepithelial malignancy with poorly described outcomes. EMPD in men is primarily found in the perianal and penoscrotal areas. We assessed incidence and time trends of EMPD in men as well as extent and predictors of survival using the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) program. The data from 18(More)
Review of computed tomographic (CT) scans of 49 consecutive patients with surgically excised acoustic neuromas revealed positive scans in 80% following contrast enhancement, with 20% false negative scans. All tumors over 2 cm in diameter were shown by optimal scans with contrast enhancement. The positive scans were evaluated to determine the accuracy of the(More)
Metrizamide (Amipaque), a nonionic water soluble contrast agent, has been shown to be safe and efficacious for lumbar myelography. Clinical trials of cervical, thoracic, and even intracranial examinations have produced good results. Despite an inherent neurotoxicity, significant complications have been quite rare, and patient tolerance in general is(More)
PURPOSE The vesicoureteral reflux index is a novel tool designed to predict spontaneous reflux resolution in infants younger than 2 years. We performed a multi-institutional validation study to confirm the discriminatory power of the vesicoureteral reflux index to predict the vesicoureteral reflux resolution rate in young children. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
Metrizamide cisternography, combined with hypocycloidal tomography, has been performed in 12 patients with possible posterior fossa or parasellar mass lesions with finely detailed images of the basal cisterns resulting. Computed tomography was performed in nine of these patients and produced exceptional images of the cisternal anatomy. The technique of(More)
Histologically confirmed polyorchidism is an uncommon condition. The majority of cases are asymptomatic and associated with inguinal hernia or cryptorchidism. There are few reported cases of pediatric supernumerary testis presenting with testicular torsion. We present a case of missed torsion with incidentally detected triorchidism as well as an overview of(More)
