Using whole exome and transcriptome sequencing, NAB2-STAT6 gene fusions have recently been identified in patients with solitary fibrous tumors (SFT). We report two cases of SFT in which NAB2-STAT6 fusions were identified. The patients were a 32-year-old man with a parasagittal tumor involving the superior sagittal sinus, and a 40-year-old man with a(More)
A 59-year-old man presented with right trigeminal neuralgia of the second branch, which had been treated with carbamazepine. The pain could not be controlled adequately because of side effects. CT and MRI revealed a 2-cm lesion in the right cerebellopontine angle. Retrosigmoid lateral suboccipital craniectomy was performed, and a soft yellowish mass was(More)

A round-shaped, low-density lesion on CT was located lateral to the left cavernous sinus with a compressed and thinned lateral wall of the sphenoid sinus. We could not identify cranial nerves in the cavernous sinus, which was found to be packed(More)
