Extragonadal teratomas in adulthood are exceptionally rare and usually not located within the cerebellum. We here report on a 66-year-old male patient clinically presenting with chronic occipital headache and episodes of severe vertigo. Neuroradiological investigations revealed a hemorrhagic tumor mass in the cerebellar vermis which was surgically removed(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare gadobenate dimeglumine (Gd-BOPTA) and gadopentetate dimeglumine (Gd-DTPA) for contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) angiography of the supraaortic vessels at 3 Tesla. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twelve healthy volunteers each underwent two contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography examinations, one with Gd-BOPTA and one with(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study is to evaluate the significance of reduced intercarotid artery distance in the C5 segment in acromegalic patients and the implications for transsphenoidal surgery. METHODS The skull base with the carotid canal was examined with a helical CT scan in 45 patients with acromegaly and 45 age group-matched controls. The(More)
In typical hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) approximately 25% of patients show central nervous system (CNS) involvement often leading to serious long-term disabilities. We used the C5-complement inhibitor Eculizumab as rescue therapy. From 2011 to 2014, 11 children (median age 22 months, range 11-175) with enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli-positive HUS(More)
Homozygous mutations in the PINK1 gene have been shown to cause early-onset parkinsonism. Here, we describe a novel homozygous mutation (Q126P), identified in two affected German sisters with a clinical phenotype typical for PINK1-associated parkinsonism.We analysed lactate, pyruvate, carnitine and acylcarnitine blood levels, lactate levels under exercise(More)
To investigate possible effects of injections of tritiated thymidine ([3H]dThd) into pregnant mice or the injection procedure itself on the proliferation of neuronal precursor cells in the fetuses, pregnant mice received intraperitoneal injections of either [3H]dThd or saline on embryonic days 12, 14, and 19, while their offspring remained untreated. A(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of various iodine contrast concentrations on image quality in computed tomography (CT) perfusion studies. Twenty-one patients with suspicion of cerebral ischemia underwent perfusion CT using two different iodine contrast concentrations: 11 patients received iomeprol 300 (iodine concentration: 300 mg/ml )(More)
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of maternal, fetal and obstetric parameters in twin pregnancies due to chorionicity, perinatal morbidity and early neonatal mortality. Methods: Early neonatal outcome parameters were retrospectively analysed in 240 twin pregnancies (51 monochorionic [MC], 189 dichorionic [DC] twins) over a 7.5(More)
We report the case of a 9-year-old boy clinically presenting with severe headache, vomiting, head retroflexion, nystagmus, and ataxia. Magnetic resonance imaging showed brainstem enlargement leading to the diagnosis of an inflammatory process. In addition, the clinical picture, a monocytic cerebrospinal fluid pleocytosis with elevated protein and lactate(More)
We report herein a clinical case of a patient with meningeal carcinomatosis from penile squamous cell carcinoma. A 68-year-old man presented with mental changes, headaches, and unstable gait. Examinations revealed brain metastases and infiltration of the leptomeninges and subarachnoid space by carcinoma cells. Only 11 months earlier the patient had been(More)
