The aim of this retrospective study was to investigate the diagnostic yield and accuracy of stereotactic biopsy in patients harboring brain mass. Stereotactic biopsy was performed in 130 patients between 1995 and 2000 in an educational and research hospital in Turkey. The results of histological analysis were compared to the resected specimens in 23(More)
OBJECTIVE The overproduction of reactive oxygen species and resultant damage to cellular proteins or lipids of cell membranes and DNA by free radicals are the underlying mechanisms of many neuropathologies. Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors have been suggested to be neuroprotective by reducing prostanoid and free radical synthesis, or by directing(More)
Cerebellar liponeurocytoma that has been recently identified as a distinct entity by the World Health Organization is characterized by areas of lipomatous differentiation and apparently by a favorable prognosis. In this paper, we described a case of 49-year-old female showing progressive clinical course inspite of a low labeling/mitotic index. We also(More)
The clinical and radiological features of an intra-suprasellar meningioma diagnosed as a pituitary macro-adenoma are presented. It is emphasized that this unusual tumour can mimic pituitary apoplexy. Differential diagnosis and surgical treatment of intrasellar meningioma versus pituitary adenoma are discussed with a review of the literature.
PURPOSE Idiopathic granulomatous lobular mastitis (IGLM) is a rare chronic inflammatory disease of the breast with obscure etiology that mimics invasive carcinoma both clinically and radiologically. The treatment of IGLM remains controversial. The aim of proper management is to use a combination of medical and surgical treatment of this benign condition to(More)
Schwannomatosis is a rare tumour syndrome characterized by more than one schwannoma without any sign of neurofibromatosis (NF). A 22-year-old male patient was admitted with weakness in his extremities. Neurological examination revealed a tetraparesis syndrome below the C6 level. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging showed a demarcated mass with strong(More)
Pseudoaneurysms of the superficial temporal artery are mostly traumatic in origin. Here, a case of a superficial temporal artery aneurysm that emerged following a recraniotomy is presented. A 59-year-old woman was admitted with subarachnoid hemorrhage. She underwent a pterional craniotomy and clipping of a saccular aneurysm of middle cerebral artery(More)
The authors reported a rare case of temporal intraparenchymal meningioma without dural attachment. A 14-year-old boy presented with a 4-month history of generalized tonic-clonic seizures. Neurological examination showed no abnormality. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging revealed an anteromedial temporal mass, which appeared to be totally intraaxial and caused(More)
Solitary fibrous tumours (SFT) were first described by Klemperer and Rabin in 1931. They are quite rare in the central nervous system and some histopathological or radiological similarities to meningiomas and haemangiopericytomas can lead to misdiagnoses as these tumours enhance homogeneously in postcontrast images, and even dural tail sign can be(More)
BACKGROUND Isolated splenic metastases from colorectal cancer are very rare and there are only 13 cases reported in the English literature so far. Most cases are asymptomatic and the diagnosis is usually made by imaging studies during the evaluation of rising CEA level postoperatively. CASE PRESENTATION A 76-year-old man underwent an extended left(More)
