We retrospectively evaluated the CT studies of 9 children who presented with intracranial tuberculosis during 1981–1987, and compared their radiographic appearance with the clinical outcome. The most common radiographic findings were: 1) ventriculomegaly (7/9), 2) tuberculoma formation (6/9), and 3) infarction (4/9). Of 7 patients with ventriculomegaly, 3(More)
The computed tomographic (CT) findings in six cases of neonatal herpes simplex encephalitis (HSE) are reviewed and compared with previous reports. The diagnoses were made on the basis of isolation of the virus from a brain biopsy specimen in one case, from cerebrospinal fluid in two cases, from tracheal aspirate in one case, and on clinical grounds in two(More)
Intraarterial digital subtraction angiography (IA-DSA) was performed in 80 pediatric patients. Forty-four underwent arterial injections with digital filming techniques. Of the 130 injections, DSA imaging was good or excellent in 121, often allowing resolution of vessels 1 mm in size. Thirty-six of the 80 patients underwent cardiac evaluation with(More)
Fourteen children who experienced acute, profound central nervous system hypoxia secondary to near drowning, aspiration, or respiratory arrest underwent CT examination. During the first week after the episode, the most frequent finding was a loss of gray-white matter differentiation. Other findings included effacement of sulci and cisterns, focal areas of(More)
