From the records of The Mount Sinai Hospital, seven cases which met established criteria for radiation-induced meningiomas were identified. This represents the largest series of radiogenic meningiomas documented in North America and includes both intracranial and intraspinal tumors. The records and pathological specimens were reviewed and these data(More)
A case of syringomyelia involving the entire spinal cord secondary to a spinal intramedullary tumour is described. Cerebrospinal fluid cytology and microscopic evaluation of gross necropsy specimens revealed a primary large cell lymphoma of the central nervous system. In addition there was massive leptomenigeal lymphomatosis involving the cortex, brainstem,(More)
Gliomas that arise primarily in the leptomeninges are rare. Of the 15 reported cases of primary leptomeningeal glioma, only two diffusely involved the leptomeninges. We report the third case of primary leptomeningeal gliomatosis, this in a 55-year-old man who died three months after the onset of symptoms. The clinical manifestations, CSF findings, and the(More)
• The ability of several tissues, including the heart, to make, bind, store, release, and inactivate norepinephrine has been the subject of numerous recent investigations. Implicit in most of these studies is the idea that these processes are occurring largely, if not exclusively, within adrenergic nerves. It appeared possible to determine what part neural(More)
Following intravenous infusion of tritiated norepinephrine, rat pineals were prepared for combined autoradiography and electron microscopy. Concentrations of photographic grains were observed only over regions of preterminal autonomic axons containing granulated vesicles, thereby directly demonstrating uptake of norepinephrine into these axons and strongly(More)
Rat cerebral microvascular endothelial cells were infected with Schmidt-Ruppin Rous sarcoma virus-strain D (SR-RSV-D), an avian retrovirus. A single focus of transformed cells was isolated and the resultant cell line designated RCE-T1. The specificity for SR-RSV-D transformation was determined by virus rescue assay and demonstration of virus-specific(More)
