These cysts are being detected as incidental findings in increasing frequency with the increasing use of MR imaging. Our data and review of the literature suggest… (More)
Neuroepithelial cysts of the CNS are rare. Two cases of noncolloid neuroepithelial cysts of the thalamus are reported. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging aided in ascertaining the nature of these cysts.
A 30-year-old man presented with sagittal sinus thrombosis. He had a history of multiple thrombotic events since adolescence, and his father had had a similar history.

Intracranial hematoma secondary to superior sagittal sinus thrombosis is a well described, but rare event. We present a case of interval resolution of a intracerebral hematoma in a patient with thrombosis of the sagittal sinus.
Aneurysms in the petrous or cavernous portion of the internal carotid artery in childhood are extremely rare. Only two such cases have been previously reported. We present a case of bilateral giant intrapetrous aneurysms in a young female. CT was especially helpful in evaluating the absolute size of these aneurysms. This case is unique in that we… (More)
