INTRODUCTION Dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumors (DNTs) were first described by Daumas-Duport et al. in 1988 as a typically cortical tumor affecting young patients with long-standing, drug-resistant epilepsy. METHODS We reviewed the medical records of 29 patients with DNT between 1994 and 2007 at Hacettepe University Children's Hospital(More)
Imaging features of infants who suffered from brain damage as a result of neonatal hypoglycemia were shown to have similar patterns, and to affect the parietal and occipital lobes most severely. Long term follow up regarding clinical outcome of patients with neonatal hypoglycemia and this pattern of damage are limited. We reviewed the medical records of 24(More)
Upside-down reversal of vision has rarely been reported in the literature. The reported causes are diverse, including posterior circulation stroke, tumors, trauma, and multiple sclerosis. The term seizure has been used in only two cases in the literature, the cause of which was stroke. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of cortical dysplasia(More)
INTRODUCTION Eosinophilic granuloma (EG), a benign bone lesion, represents a focal form of histiocytosis X. Here, the authors report a case of an extremely rare presentation of a solitary EG of the skull. CASE REPORT A 9-year-old boy presented with headache and vomiting for 3 days. His examination was unremarkable except for a tender mass in his left(More)
Intracranial desmoid tumors are extremely rare. The association of desmoid tumors with familial adenomatous polyposis coli was reported previously, with the tumors involving trunk and extremities. We report a 3.5-year-old girl with intracranial desmoid tumor with familial adenomatous polyposis coli. This condition in a child is rarely reported. Follow-up of(More)
A case of rhombencephalosynapsis, a very rare disorder characterized by agenesis or hypogenesis of the cerebellar vermis and fusion of the cerebellar hemispheres, is reported with magnetic resonance imaging features. Radiographs showed anomalies in both hands; namely phalangeal hypoplasia and occult polydactyly in the right hand and syndactyly in the left,(More)
Spinal seeding of primary malignant intracranial tumors via CSF is common. However, this is rare in low-grade glial tumors. Cranial leptomeningeal metastasis of primary spinal cord low-grade gliomas at diagnosis or relapse is extremely rare. Leptomeningeal metastasis of spinal cord low-grade tumors may mimic tuberculous meningitis in children. A patient(More)
Patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) are the subjects of a large part of routine neuroradiological work in the Western world currently. The World Health Organization announced that Turkish authorities had reported a cumulative total of 2544 HIV cases from 1985 to 2006, of whom 623 had developed AIDS and 140 had died. It is estimated that(More)
Dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor (DNT)- like lesions arise in extracortical locations and behave in a benign fashion similar to that of cortical DNTs. They usually come to attention by symptoms and signs of increased intracranial pressure rather than focal neurological impairment. Here we report a case of 9-year-old boy with a complaint of headache(More)
An 18-year-old male with Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome was presented with spastic quadriparesis. Magnetic resonance imaging of whole spinal canal revealed stenosis at multiple levels of cervical, thoracic and lumbar regions. By the guidance of combined evaluations of neurological examination, neuroradiological and electrophysiological findings, the most(More)
