Little is known about the incidence and symptomatology of pineal cysts in children. Until now, the proper management of this group of patients has not been established. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the epidemiological and clinical features of pineal cysts in children and adolescents and to try to find guidelines for their management. We(More)
In 135 children (aged 3 months to 15 years) with structural defects of the central nervous system found on magnetic resonance imaging, agenesis of the corpus callosum was evident in 7. The etiology of agenesis of the corpus callosum has been established in four children: partial trisomy of chromosome 13, partial duplication of the long arm of chromosome 10,(More)
Authors report two cases of benign, osteogenic neoplasms of the maxilla in children which defined as cemento-ossifying fibroma and juvenile cemento-ossifying fibroma. Difficulty in diagnosis of the tumor is indicated. The importance of clinical data as well as radiology and histopathology examination for a proper diagnosis is indicated. Review of literature(More)
BACKGROUND Rhomboencephalosynapsis (RES, RS) is a unique entity usually recognized in infancy based on neuroimaging. Cerebellar fusion and absence of cerebellar vermis is often associated with supratentorial findings. Since now there are about 50 cases described worldwide, with approximately 36 patients diagnosed by MRI. The authors present the first in(More)
BACKGROUND Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease with not well understood etiology. Recently, a possible association of MS with compromised venous outflow from the brain and spinal cord has been studied (chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency - CCSVI). Angioplasties of internal jugular veins (IJV) and azygous vein (AV) have given promising(More)
Application of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in radiology allows to estimate and analyse pineal gland and pineal region pathology more precisely. We report 47 MRI brain studies of patients in whom pineal cyst was recognized as the only pathologic finding. MRI of the brain was performed because of clinical symptoms as headaches (32%), vertigo (26%) and(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was a comparison of the outcomes of intrauterine myelomeningocele (MMC) repairs (IUMR) in type II Chiari malformation (II CM) fetuses with clinical data of newborns and infants operated on postnatally. METHODS The study group (SG) comprised 46 pregnant women whose type II CM children underwent IUMR, while 47 pregnant women(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Cerebral artery fenestrations (CAF) are rare congenital variations usually diagnosed by digital subtraction angiography (DSA). The aim of this study was to examine the frequency of occurrence of fenestrations in cerebral arteries and their coexistence with cerebral aneurysms in computed tomography angiography (CTA). MATERIAL AND(More)
The application of high intense focused ultrasound (HIFU) is currently the subject of many experimental and clinical trials. The combination of HIFU with MRI guidance known as MR-guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS) appears to be particularly promising to ablate tissues located deep in the brain. The method can be the beginning of interventional neurology and(More)
The aim of our work was to evaluate the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values of normal brain over a wide age range and in different cerebral structures, including the white and grey matter. A population of 89 subjects (39 male, 50 female, age range: 3-69 years) was divided into age groups designated as 1-7 as follows: 3-9; 10-19; 20-29; 30-39; 40-49;(More)
