Pituitary abscess secondary to an adenoma is rare. To date, only 19 cases have been reported. This is the first report of a patient who presented with bilateral total ophthalmoplegia. A 59-year-old male patient presented with headache, nausea, vomiting, decreasing visual acuity, diplopia and bilateral ophthalmoplegia with ptosis. Magnetic resonance imaging… (More)
A 28-year-old woman presented with a rare primary epidural hemangioma without adjacent vertebral involvement manifesting as progressive paraparesis. Magnetic resonance imaging of the thoracic spine showed an epidural lesion at T4-5 space appearing as isointense on T1-weighted images with enhancement by contrast medium and hyperintense on T2-weighted images.… (More)
A case of ossified chronic subdural hematoma is presented in a 13-year-old male in whom the mass was surgically removed. His neurological deficits continued afterward but were less severe.
A case of malignant teratoma of the cerebellopontine angle is presented. Preoperative findings suggested an acoustic neurinoma or a meningioma. Particularly in adulthood, malignant teratomas arising in unusual locations can simulate common intracranial tumors.
OBJECTIVE Spinal epidural lipomatosis (SEDL) is a rare disorder often associated with the administration of exogenous steroids or the elevation of endogenous steroids. Spinal epidural lipomatosis develops in some patients in the absence of elevated steroid levels. The limited information known about idiopathic SEDL comes predominantly from isolated case… (More)
A case of cystic cavernous hemangioma of the cerebellopontine angle is described. The clinical findings, location of the tumor, and computed tomographic findings were unusual. This rare lesion must be considered in the differential diagnosis of cystic infratentorial masses.
Aneurysms of the posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) are rare, and may arise in unusual locations due to the complex and variable anatomy of this artery. The PICA does not usually originate from the extracranial vertebral artery. Of the few reported extracranial PICA aneurysms, all affected the distal segment. We describe an unusual extracranial… (More)
In childhood and adolescence, pituitary adenomas are rare and half are prolactinomas. However, cystic giant prolactinoma in prepuberty is extremely rare. In this report, we present a 10-year-old boy with a cystic giant prolactinoma who was treated with two-stage surgery as the tumor was dumbbell shaped. To our knowledge, this is the second reported case of… (More)
We report a fluid level in an acute extradural haematoma developing after placement of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt for hydrocephalus. This fluid level was thought to be due to a mixture of blood and cerebrospinal fluid.
