Spontaneous subdural haematoma is very rare in young patients. The complications of anabolic steroid intake in weight lifters are numerous, yet subdural haematomas have not been reported. We report on two cases of spontaneous subdural haematomas in young weight lifters. Both patients underwent surgical evacuation and made a full recovery. A review of the(More)
Based on past laboratory and anecdotal clinical experience, we hypothesized that prolonged cervical spinal cord stimulation (SCS) in the acute settings of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) would be both safe and feasible, and that 2-week stimulation will reduce incidence of cerebral arterial vasospasm. The goal of our clinical study was to establish(More)
Background. The optimal treatment of low grade intramedullary spinal cord tumours remains controversial. In many cases the tumours continue to progress even after surgery and radiation. Effective chemotherapy may be an important therapeutic adjunct in this setting. Temozolomide is widely used for brain gliomas, yet its role in the management of spinal cord(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Large-vessel cerebral blood flow quantification has emerged as a potential predictor of stroke risk. QMRA uses phase-contrast techniques to noninvasively measure vessel flows. To evaluate the in vivo accuracy of QMRA for measuring the effects of progressive arterial stenosis, we compared this technique with invasive flow measurements(More)
Neurocutaneous syndromes represent some of the most common inherited disorders of the nervous system. Neurofibromatosis type-1 (NF-1) and tuberous sclerosis are well described. Yet, the presentation of both syndromes in the same patient is quite rare. We performed a thorough review of the literature of such double phakomatosis including pattern of(More)
The ocular involvement of tuberculosis is not uncommon but diverse. Rarely, patients initially present with ocular signs that simulate intraocular malignancy. We report 3 cases of isolated presumed choroidal tuberculoma masquerading as intraocular tumor. Two patients had no systemic evidence of tuberculosis with strongly positive purified protein derivative(More)
PURPOSE To study the pattern of ocular adnexal lymphoproliferative disorders (OALD) in an ophthalmic referral center in Saudi Arabia and to review their, histopathological characteristics with clinical correlation. METHODS Retrospective chart review of 40 cases of patients who underwent incisional biopsy with the suspected diagnosis of periocular and/or(More)
Primary Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) represents the 2nd most common lymphoma occurring in the orbit, after Mucosal Associated Lymphoid Tissue (MALT) lymphoma. A total of 5 cases of ocular adnexal DLBCL were diagnosed over 25 years of experience at our tertiary eye care center. Two cases involved the lacrimal sac and one case involved the lacrimal(More)
Myeloid sarcoma is a tumor of immature myeloid cells occurring in many extramedullary sites, orbit being one of them where the tumor may occur prior to or after the diagnosis of underlying disease. We report a case of a 17-year-old male who presented with upper eyelid swelling, proptosis and diplopia after presumed blunt trauma without any other clinical(More)
