Clinical examination of patients affected by plagiocephaly or trigonocephaly reveals evident malformation of the orbits, and the ocular repercussions are pronounced when children are operated on at an advanced age. Since it is generally accepted that binocular vision is fully developed by approximately 6 months of age, a late correction of plagiocephalic or(More)
We demonstrate for the first time the ability to determine in vivo and in utero the transitions between the main stages of white matter (WM) maturation in normal human fetuses using magnetic resonance diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) tractography. Biophysical characteristics of water motion are used as an indirect probe to evaluate progression of the tissue(More)
to detect the virus and determine the amount of the viral RNA in the medium. Cells and supernatants of the 3 passages were virus positive, and the control inoculated with phosphate-buffered saline was virus negative. However, with each passage, the amount of viral RNA in the medium decreased. Whether the positive result was caused by residual viruses of the(More)
BACKGROUND Macular edema (ME) treatment has benefited from the recent intravitreal pharmacotherapy development of an intravitreal implant of dexamethasone (Ozurdex(®), Allergan, Irvine, Calif., USA). However, its efficiency has never been illustrated beyond 3 injections. CASE PRESENTATION We report the case of a 75-year-old woman with inferior branch vein(More)
Plagiocephaly, which is caused by premature closure of one of the coronal sutures, leads to fronto-orbital asymmetry. The aim of this work was to study the repercussions of orbital deformation on the visual system. Twenty-one patients presenting with plagiocephaly at birth and operated on by the same craniofacial technique (bilateral approach with(More)
Duane retraction syndrome is a congenital oculomotor disorder characterized by horizontal eye movement limitations with palpebral fissure narrowing and globe retraction on attempted adduction. Recent reports showed the absence of the subarachnoid part of the abducens nerve on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in types I and III. We present a case of Duane(More)
PURPOSE Neuroimaging findings in Duane's retraction syndrome (DRS), through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), suggest that aplasia of the abducens nerve (VI) can be responsible for several forms of DRS. METHODS Brain MRI was performed in two children of 2.5 and 7 years of age with left sided DRS type II and right sided DRS type I, respectively. 3D T2(More)
Between 1975 and 1992, 426 children with craniofacial malformations were treated in the Department of Pediatric Neurosurgery at the Hôpital des Enfants de la Timone in Marseille. Plagiocephaly was present in 71 (16.6%). The authors present a reproducible analysis of the skull base in plagiocephaly based on these 71 patients. A control group of Mediterranean(More)
PURPOSE We report a case of unilateral exudative retinal detachment in a patient with thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP), without associated hypertension, successfully treated with plasmapheresis. CASE REPORT A 46-year-old woman with a medical history of TTP presented with unilateral exudative retinal detachment. Biological and radiological(More)
