Clear cell meningioma (CCM) is an uncommon variant of meningioma, which affect younger patients, occur more often in spinal or cerebello pontine locations and shows a higher recurrence rate. Only few case reports have been described in the literature. The study has been undertaken to document the clinicopathological features of nine cases of CCM, operated(More)
The study has been undertaken to document the clinicopathological features of 12 cases of chordoid meningioma, operated at All India Institute of Medical Sciences during 1996 to June 2005. Clinical information was retrieved from the records of our Neurosurgery Department. The cases were stained with H&E, Periodic Acid Schiff (PAS) with and without diastase,(More)
Seventeen cases of cranio-cerebral erosion were subjected to detailed histopathological study in order to get a better insight into the pathogenesis of this lesion. It was found that the bone and brain at the site and edge of the defect show not only evidence of damage at the time of initial injury, but also of “active” progressive damage months and years(More)
A 28-year-old man had a desmoplastic medullo-blastoma in the vermis and left cerebellum. This tumor was composed of nodular, reticulin-free zones (pale islands) surrounded by densely packed, highly proliferative cells that produced a dense intercellular reticulin network. Some of the cells were heavily pigmented, and this pigment proved to be melanin. Adult(More)
Myxopapillary ependymomas are low grade tumours that are known to recur locally even after complete excision, but metastasis to distant sites is extremely uncommon. We report an unusual case of lumbo-sacral myxopapillary ependymoma in a 13-year-old boy with metastasis to both cerebellopontine angles. To the best of our knowledge, this is the youngest(More)
Gliomas with cartilaginous metaplasia are extremely uncommon and thought to be due to metaplasia of the mesenchymal supportive elements. The tumors are located in the midline, mostly fourth ventricle and rarely in the pons. The present paper describes an unusual case of anaplastic ependymoma with cartilaginous and osseous metaplasia in a young boy which was(More)
A rare case of fibrosarcoma of the scalp following postoperative radiotherapy for medulloblastoma is reported. A review of similar cases in the literature was undertaken in an attempt to find a correlation between the dose of radiation, the length of the latent period, and the nature of the neoplasm. A significantly shorter latent period was found for(More)
The occurrence of an extrarenal Wilms tumor in the lumbosacral region is an extremely uncommon condition. We report a case of Wilms tumor in the lumbosacral region that was associated with diastematomyelia and occult spina bifida. An 18-month-old girl presented with a swelling over the lower back with a tuft of hair on it, which she had had since birth.(More)
The authors report an unusual case of hepatosplenic T-cell lymphoma in a 41-year-old male patient. He presented initially with low grade fever, hepato-splenomegaly and pancytopenia. Splenectomy was done which showed infiltration of red pulp by monomorphic lymphocytes. Liver was also infiltrated with similar cells. A provisional diagnosis of hairy cell(More)
 The membranes from 50 cases of chronic subdural haematomas were examined histologically and correlated with the duration of the lesion. Cases were divided into three groups based on duration from time of trauma and/or onset of clinical symptoms to date of surgery – Group I: 1 to 30 days, Group II: 31 to 90 days and Group III: >90 days. Infiltration with(More)
