From February 1992 to December 1994, 148 patients with penetrating craniocerebral injuries were treated surgically with primary and secondary debridement including repair of dural defects and removal of retained intracranial bone and metal fragments. Dural defects were closed primarily or with temporalis fascia, pericranium, and cadaver graft. Cerebrospinal(More)
Intracerebral and intramedullary schwannomas are uncommon; but, in general, spinal intramedullary schwannomas are more frequent than intracerebral schwanomas. We present a case of right lateral ventricle schwannoma in a 21-year-old man and review the associated literature. The 21-year-old right-handed man presented with loss of the left-eye vision(More)
Gossypiboma (textiloma, gauzoma, muslinoma) is a rare iatrogenic mass caused by the retention of gauze fibres during surgery. This intraoperative complication has rarely been reported for an intraspinal or paraspinal location. Here, we present a patient in whom a retained surgical sponge between the paraspinal muscles was encountered 3 years after lumbar(More)
Spinal schwannomas are benign tumors arising from spinal nerve root sheaths. These are the most common intradural extramedullary spinal tumors. Schwannomas are mostly solid or heterogeneous solid tumors. Cystic schwannomas are rare lesions. We present a 27-year-old woman with an intradural extramedullary cystic tumor in the lower thoracic region who(More)
Primary or secondary spinal involvement of lymphoma is a rarely reported entity. An eleven-year-old girl with primary cervical dumbbell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) was presented. We could not found any such growth pattern of primary or secondary NHL'S in the literature. For this reason, we reviewed shortly pertinent literature and discussed the(More)
OBJECTIVE Esthesioneuroblastoma accounted for only 6% of the malignant nasal cavity neoplasms (ENB) is a rare tumor which originates from the olfactory epithelium. ENB's are locally agresive and can metastasize by lymphatic and hematogenous routes. A patient with the mass on the nasal dorsum was reported in this article. CASE HISTORY A 52-year-old-man(More)
During the past 10-year period 235 patients with cervical injury were included in this study. In this paper we present our clinical experiences in patients with cervical spine injury treated surgically and conservatively and their outcome. Only few data exist on the treatment of cervical spine injuries. The principles of the management are still(More)
The authors report and discuss an extremely rare case of primary Ewing's sarcoma originating in the flat bones of the skull. The case was followed up by serial bone scanning during the postoperative period. A subclinical recurrence was detected as a focus at the original site 2.5 years after the first operation. Following a second operation and adjuvant(More)
