The incidence of the various histological subtypes of meningiomas was examined in 1238 patients with surgically treated meningiomas, about 80% arising within the cranial cavity. The histological classification used was that of Courville (1950) and Rubinstein (1972), but “angioblastic” meningiomas were segregated into 3 groups: highly vascularized(More)
On the basis of 4 observations, the formation of extracranial metastases of multiform glioblastomas is dealth with which complied with all the criteria established by Weiss (histological identification of a primary brain tumour, connection of clinical data between cerebral tumour and metastases, ruling out of another primary tumour not belonging to the(More)
Central neurocytoma is a benign neuronal tumor of young adults in the lateral cerebral ventricles with characteristic X ray and light microscopic findings. In many respects typical central neurocytoma is reported below, with recurrence in the third month requiring reoperation. Death ensued in the fifth postoperative month. Subsequent histology proved(More)
Primary glioblastoma multiforme located intramedullary in the spinal cord is a very rare entity. The authors report eight cases and discuss the clinical features, the possibility of diagnosis, combined treatment and pathomorphological signs focusing on the relevant literature and their experience.
Superior cervical ganglia from 7 human cadavers (3-7 h post mortem) were immunostained for tyrosine hydroxylase (TH), dopamine-beta-hydroxylase (DBH) and 14 different neuropeptides. The results show that ganglionic cells contain TH, DBH, neuropeptide Y (NPY), somatostatin, vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) and calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP).(More)
Ten cases with cystic craniopharyngioma were investigated. Histologically, eight of them belonged to the adamantinomatous group and two were squamous epithelial type. Histochemical investigation revealed mucin secretion in microcysts, and electron microscopy demonstrated zymogen granules in the epithelial cells. When the protein content of the cyst fluid(More)
A rare case of primary malignant intramedullary lymphoma, localized in the cervical part of the spinal cord, is presented. The onset of clinical symptoms was associated with herpes zoster infection. Surgery led to the histological diagnosis. The clinical investigations excluded the presence of lymphoma in other sites in the central nervous system and in the(More)
The histological, ultrastructural and immunocytochemical features are reported of an intrasellar neuronal and lipomatous hamartoma associated with pituitary growth hormone (GH) cell adenoma and acromegaly. Electron microscopy demonstrated a close contact between neurons and adenomatous GH cells. By immunohistochemistry the adenoma cells revealed a positive(More)
Thirty-nine cases of gliosarcomas, two initiating as fibrosarcomas, 25 as mixed gliomas and sarcomas, and 12 as anaplastic gliomas with secondary sarcomas, were studied by light microscopy, immunohistochemistry, using GFAP, factor VIII/RAg, andUlex europaeus I agglutinin (UEA I), electron microscopy and tissue culture. GFAP was found variably positive in(More)
