BACKGROUND Foramen magnum decompression (FMD) is the standard procedure for Chiari I malformation. Although seemingly a straightforward procedure, recent articles have reported an increase in various complications. We describe a rare complication of coexistent supratentorial and infratentorial subdural hygromas (SDHs) with hydrocephalus noted after FMD and(More)
Neurenteric cysts (NEC) are uncommon, benign, congenital lesions. Ventral foramen magnum (FM) location is very rare. The difficulties in diagnosis and management aspects are detailed with a review of the pertinent literature. We report four new cases of ventral FM NEC, all managed surgically and present a literature review of ventral FM NEC. A retrospective(More)
OBJECTIVE Gangliogliomas (GG) are benign, primary neoplasms most commonly noted in young adults. Intraventricular location is rare. We report a case of a multicentric intraventricular GG posing diagnostic and therapeutic challenges and in addition provide a detailed literature review of intraventricular GG. METHODS A 15-year-old girl presented with(More)

Reliance on clinical findings alone is not recommended as these are nonspecific; for all suspicious cases, it is advisable to conduct a CT scan. Only a handful of pediatric studies have been reported analyzing the outcome of(More)
