OBJECTIVES We report on 16 cases of dysembryoplastic Neuroepithelial tumor (DNT) treated in the Nancy University Hospital from 1987 to 1997. PATIENTS AND METHODS There were 9 males and 7 females. Mean age at onset of symptoms was 9.5 years (range: 3 months to 29 years) and the mean age at surgery was 16 years. Nine patients experienced partial complex(More)
The lesions of the cerebral white matter which characterize Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease are classically observed at pathological examination. An early diagnosis can now be obtained by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In an eutrophic first son born at term, stridor, nystagmus-like eye movements and axial hypotonia were noted immediately after birth and(More)
Correlation of myelin-stained or cryotomic sections of human brain with inversion-recovery MR images can display the cerebral commissures as white-matter tracts (in hypersignal on MRI), crossing the mid-line. MRI shows routinely in three orthogonal planes a) the corpus callosum stretched above the supra-tentorial ventricles, it's four portions (rostrum,(More)
The authors report 11 cases of choroid plexus papillomas in children operated on from 1979 until 1993. The age ranges from 2 months to 14 years old. The most frequent location occurred in the lateral ventricles (7 cases) followed by the locations in the third ventricle (3 cases) and the fourth ventricle (1 case). A complete resection was performed in all(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Germ cell tumors (GCT) of the central nervous system are rare (2% of all brain tumors in children). Although originating from germ cells, GCT cover a spectrum of different tumors with different management and prognosis, depending on whether they secrete tumor markers or not. The aim of this study is to present a series of children(More)
BACKGROUND Medium- and long-term prognosis of craniopharyngioma is overwhelmed by the risks of hypothalamic and visual impairment. This problem has been underestimated for a long time because the major concern for the neurosurgeon was the risk of recurrences, their best prevention being thought to be complete tumour resection. Today, we know that radical(More)
Cerebral sulci identification process is based on several formal rules: it consists a series of steps allowing the identification of the major sulci. The process may be variable for each of us and we propose to read the images in certain order starting with the frontal lobe and its superior frontal gyrus than precentral and central gyri followed by the(More)
In order to optimally integrate the use of high-throughput sequencing (HTS) as a tool in clinical diagnostics of likely monogenic disorders, we have created a multidisciplinary “Genome Clinic Task Force” at the University Hospitals of Geneva, which is composed of clinical and molecular geneticists, bioinformaticians, technicians, bioethicists, and a(More)
