Magnetic resonance (MR) scans of 22 children with spinal dysraphism were reviewed. MR scans of the cervicothoracic spine in 12 cases revealed 10 Chiari II malformations, 1 Chiari III malformations, and 4 syringohydromyelias. Twelve MR scans of the lumbosacral region were performed demonstrating 11 tethered cords, 6 myelomeningoceles, 4 lipomyeloschises, 2(More)
The authors report the case of a patient with subarachnoid hemorrhage in whom an intracranial dural arteriovenous malformation coexisted with a spinal arteriovenous malformation. The latter was considered to be the source of the hemorrhage by clinical and radiographic criteria. It is concluded that patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage who show no suitable(More)
We studied two young males who had visual field defects consistent with optic chiasmal injury after blunt frontal head trauma. One patient also had a unilateral optic neuropathy. Long-term follow-up disclosed complete bi-temporal hemianopsias in these patients. Both patients had midline basilar skull fractures that traversed the midclivus through the sella(More)
It has been presumed that idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus is due to obstruction. We visualized the ventricles in 19 patients subsequent to shunting. We found no consistent relationship between clinical improvement after shunting and reduction in ventricular size. This suggests that the positive effect of shunting in at least some instances is due(More)
Originally, all acute subdural hematomas were thought to be hyperdense with respect to brain on CT (1). But over the last 1 0-15 years, cases of acute isodense subdural and epidural hematomas have been reported [2-6). Although contrast-enhanced CT has aided in the visualization of chronic isodense subdural hematomas [7), the use of contrast material was not(More)
Kaposi Sarcoma (KS) is an angioproliferative tumor associated with human herpes virus 8 (HHV-8).  Often known as one of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)-defining skin diseases, pulmonary involvement in KS has only been discussed in a handful of case reports, rarely in a non-HIV patient. Herein we report the case of a 77 year-old- male who(More)
