A 50-year old woman with a giant parapharyngeal meningioma extending from the intracranial cavity was admitted to our hospital. The parapharyngeal tumor was biopsied using the transoral approach and a histological section diagnosis suggested meningioma. Thereafter, further examination by magnetic resonance images (MRI) and contrast enhanced CT scans(More)
A case of medulloblastoma with extracranial metastases was reported. A 20-year-old woman was operated on for cerebellar medulloblastoma twice during the past 5 years and a half. Two years after the second operation, she revealed the metastases to the cervical, axillar and inguinal lymphnodes, and to the skeletal system, such as the skull, scapula, humerus,(More)

Two rare cases of neurenteric cysts with meningomyelocele and meningocele were treated. The mechanism of the development of these anomalies is discussed. It is considered that the terminal, dorsal part of the enteric fistula, which is produced between the endoderm and the ectoderm through a partially duplicated notochord in the development of the embryo,(More)
