The aim of this study was to determine dimensions of the normal menisci in 174 healthy subjects by using MRI. The menisci were divided into three zones (anterior horn, mid-body, posterior horn). The height and width of the both menisci were measured. For the medial meniscus; the height and width of the anterior horn were 5.32 mm and 7.78 mm, the height and(More)
INTRODUCTION To examine the clinical and radiologic findings of patients with developmental venous anomaly (DVA) associated with intracranial haemorrhage but unrelated to cavernoma. METHODS Computed tomography (CT) was used to obtain intracranial images from seven patients ranging in age from 6 to 51 years. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was then(More)
Brucellosis is a zoonotic disease characterized by multisystem involvement. Nervous system involvement is rare, with a reported incidence of 3%-13%. Brucellosis can also be manifested in the form of vasculopathy. Cerebral vasculopathy due to brucellosis is a very rare entity, with only a few cases reported in the literature. We present a patient with(More)
The aim of this study was to determine whether a relationship exists between mastoid size and auditory tube angle (ATA) and chronic ear disease. A radiological and clinical study was undertaken of the temporal bones of 36 subjects. There were 24 patients with unilateral chronic otitis media (COM) and 12 healthy controls (HC): the contralateral healthy ears(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare sizes of the foramen ovale and rotundum in trigeminal neuralgia (TN) patients and healthy individuals on CT images. METHODS Twenty-one TN patients and 24 healthy volunteers were included in this retrospectively designed study, carried out at the Department of Anatomy, Medical School, Gaziantep University, Gaziantep, Turkey, between(More)
l-2 hydroxyglutaric aciduria is a rare, autosomal recessively inherited metabolic disorder of organic acid metabolism. A 5-year-old boy presented with eyelid myoclonia with absences that proved difficult to control with first-line anticonvulsants. An electroencephalogram produced profoundly abnormal results, with generalized spike-and-wave discharges. The(More)
Isolated spontaneous common carotid artery (CCA) dissection is rare. So far, surgical or medical treatment have only been reported in a few cases in the literature. We report a 39-year-old man, diagnosed as isolated spontaneous CCA dissection one year ago, who experienced a new minor stroke despite medical treatment. Because of the presence of new ischemic(More)
Management of cryptogenic massive hemoptysis is difficult, and conservative treatment may be inadequate to stop the hemorrhage. Surgery is not a reasonable option because there is no underlying identifiable pathology. This study aimed to investigate the radiologic findings and bronchial artery embolization outcomes in cryptogenic hemoptysis, and to compare(More)
