Hypoxic-ischemic brain damage has significant mortality and morbidity in newborns. Although the role of magnesium in neonatal hypoxic-ischemic brain injury related to N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors has been widely studied; the effects of magnesium on neuronal apoptosis have not been known exactly in hypoxia-ischemia. The aim of this study was to investigate… (More)
Two young adult males presented with paranasal sinus osteoma associated with mucocele. A 20-year-old man presented with headache and seizure, and another 20-year-old man presented with headache, frontal deformity, and visual disturbances. Both patients underwent surgery and satisfactory results were obtained. Isolated paranasal sinus osteomas are benign and… (More)
The identification of prognostic parameters in ependymomas remains an important but controversial issue in particular to the significance of histopathological features. Intracranial location is a rare presentation for adult ependymomas. DNA ploidy status and nuclear morphometric features of ependymomas are not well-established. We retrospectively studied… (More)
PURPOSE The pre and post-treatment effects of L-carnitine on apoptotic cell death due to hypoxia-ischemia in various regions of the brains of seven-day-old rats were investigated. METHODS L-carnitine (group 1; n=8) or saline (group 2; n=8) was administered intraperitoneally to seven-day-old rats before hypoxia-ischemia. In addition, 16 seven-day-old rats… (More)
OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE An unusual, but not unique, case of cerebellar aspergillosis associated with autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation for breast cancer is presented. CLINICAL PRESENTATION A 45-year-old woman with breast cancer underwent chemotherapy and radiotherapy as well as autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation.… (More)
Fibro-osseous lesions of the sinonasal region are relatively frequent, but those strictly confined to the nasal cavity are rare. We report an atypical fibro-osseous lesion in the nasal cavity and describe its radiological features. The differential diagnosis is discussed.
Cushing's disease resulting from intrasellar gangliocytomas is very rare and only three cases have been reported to date. All of the cases were female. We present a fourth case of Cushing's disease resulting from intrasellar gangliocytoma. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging scans showed a pituitary macrotumor with suprasellar extension. A… (More)
