Risky anatomic variations of sphenoid sinus for surgery
Coronal tomography more successfully detects the sphenoid sinus anatomic variations, while axial images were more successful in detection of protrusion of optic nerve and vidian nerve, and dehiscense of maxillary nerve andVidian nerve. Expand
Molecular Genetic Analysis of Two Large Kindreds With Intracranial Aneurysms Demonstrates Linkage to 11q24-25 and 14q23-31
Molecular genetic analysis of 2 large IA kindreds confirms linkage to chromosome 11q and 14q, which were suggested to contain IA susceptibility genes in a previous study of Japanese sib pairs, and independent identification of these 2 loci strongly suggests that IA susceptible genes lie within these regions.

Suprasellar germ cell tumor with subarachnoid seeding MRI and MR spectroscopy findings.
MR spectroscopy of the mass showed prominent lipid peak suggesting high malignant potential, and MR imaging revealed a huge suprasellar mass, heterogenous in signal intensity due to cystic components. Expand
Late dissemination of ependymoma: case report.
It is concluded that low grade ependymomas should be followed neurologically and radiologically for more than 10 years after the initial treatment, as this case represents the second unusual late recurrence reported in the literature. Expand
