Posterior epidural migration (PEM) of free disc fragments is rare, and reported PEM patients usually presented with radicular signs. An uncommon case involving a patient with cauda equina syndrome due to PEM of a lumbar disc fragment is reported with a review of the literature. The patient described in this report presented with an acute cauda equina(More)
STUDY DESIGN This case report illustrates a young male patient with thoracal spinal pigmented villonodular synovitis who presented with difficulty in walking. OBJECTIVES The treatment of this lesion with posterior approach for preventing neurological deterioration and follow-up with magnetic resonance imaging studies. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Spinal(More)
Intracranial hydatid cysts, although still rare, are being seen with increasing frequency. We report 12 cases of intracerebral hydatid cysts diagnosed with the use of computed tomography. We also review the methods recently available for diagnosis and therapy of this disease. Excellent therapeutic results can be achieved through surgical removal of the(More)
BACKGROUND To discuss the presentation, diagnosis, management modalities and outcomes of the arachnoid cysts. METHODS EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Retrospective study with a mean follow-up period of 31 months (ranging between 9 months and 5 years). SETTING Institutional practice (The Military Medical Faculty Hospital). Patients and the participants: 25(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)
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)
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)
This study examined the preventive effects of the local application of mitomycin C (MMC), 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), and cyclosporine A (CsA) in minimizing spinal epidural fibrosis in a rat laminectomy model. Thirty-two 2-year-old male Wistar albino rats, each weighing 400 ± 50 g, were divided into four equal groups: sham, MMC, 5-FU, and CsA. Each rat underwent(More)
HYPOTHESIS Traumatic injuries to the ulnar nerve at the elbow are a frequent problem as it is vulnerable to stretching and compression with motion of the upper limb. The aim of the present study was to explore the course of the ulnar nerve at the elbow and forearm and to determine possible anatomical structures that may cause compression of this structure.(More)
