MR findings are reported in three patients presenting mannosidosis. Among a family of 8 children, 4 presented typical clinical and biological abnormalities related to mannosidosis. Brain MR examinations including sagittal T1 and axial T2 sections were obtained in three patients of this family (one 25-year-old male, one 34-year-old female, and one(More)
Intracranial alveolar echinococcosis is uncommon. We report a patient with right frontal lobe and palpebral lesions secondary to a primary hepatic focus with secondary lesion in the lung. The intracranial and palpebral cystic masses were totally removed and both proved to be alveolar hydatid cysts. An unusual feature in this case is CT and MRI demonstration(More)
The authors report their experience of CT and MRI imaging in the study of suprasellar pathologies. The problems concerning the differential diagnosis between meningioma developed in the suprasellar region and pituitary tumour with suprasellar extension are discussed and illustrated; the demonstration of bone abnormalities (blistering, hyperostosis) is(More)
We present two cases of bilateral, symmetrical pedicular clefts associated with dural ectasia in von Recklinghausen's disease (neurofibromatosis). In one case the pedicular cleft was at the T12 level, while in the other it was at L4, and was responsible for spondylolisthesis. Two hypotheses are advanced to explain the cleft: (1) a congenital, dysplastic(More)
A thoracic intradural arachnoid cyst presenting as an intradural extramedullary mass highly suggestive of psammoma on myelogram and myelo-CT is reported in a 34-year-old female. High densities of the cyst were related to collection of contrast media within the cyst. However MR examination of the thoracic spinal cord including sagittal T1 (without and with(More)
When it occurs bilaterally, disinsertion of the quadriceps tendons may suggest quadricipital amyotrophy syndrome. Questioning and physical examination of the locomotor system usually lead to a diagnosis of mechanical lesion involving the extensor mechanism of the knee. If necessary, this diagnosis can be confirmed by ultrasonography and MRI of the knee. A(More)
