We present two cases of atypical meningioma WHO grade II with a history of multiple local recurrences and late pulmonary metastases. Comparative cytogenetic analyses on 1p and 22q confirmed clonal origin of the primary intracranial meningiomas and the pulmonary metastases in both cases. These cases illustrate the importance of close neuroradiological(More)
Stroke-induced blood-brain barrier breakdown promotes complications like cerebral edema and hemorrhagic transformation, especially in association with therapeutical recanalization of occluded vessels. As arteries, capillaries and veins display distinct functional and morphological characteristics, we here investigated patterns of blood-brain barrier(More)
BACKGROUND Antipsychotic-induced weight gain (AIWG) is a serious side-effect of antipsychotic medication leading to metabolic syndrome and increased cardiovascular morbidity. Unfortunately, there are still no valid predictors to assess an individual's risk to gain weight. Previous studies have indicated an impact of genetic variation in the genes encoding(More)
PURPOSE To investigate if apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values within primary central nervous system lymphoma correlate with cellularity and proliferative activity in corresponding histological samples. MATERIALS AND METHODS Echo-planar diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance images obtained from 21 patients with primary central nervous system(More)
The tractability and integrity of fiber tracts within an edema, and the functional roles of long-range fiber tracts during language processing are discussed controversially. We studied the dorsal and ventral language fiber tracts of patients initially presenting with a peritumoral edema in both their pre-and postoperative states. Here, we report preliminary(More)
BACKGROUND Rhabdomyolysis is a widely recognized yet rare complication in statin use. Rhabdomyolysis might be triggered by the prescription of high doses of statins or by statin accumulation due to interactions with concomitant medication. Muscle cell destruction as evidenced by myoglobin elevation can induce potentially life-threatening acute renal(More)
As stroke therapies are still limited to a minority of patients, efforts have been intensified to an improved understanding of pathophysiological processes during ischemia formation, potentially allowing the development of specific therapeutic interventions. In this context, cytoskeletal elements became evident as key players during the transition process(More)
BACKGROUND Identification of high-grade meningiomas in preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is important for optimized surgical strategy and best possible resection. Numerous studies investigated subjectively determined morphological features as predictors of tumor biology in meningiomas. The aim of this study was to identify the predictive value(More)
