We report 2 cases of spinal epidural cavernous angiomas revealed by paraplegia, and present the main cases reported in the literature since 1895. The diagnosis of this uncommon affection seems to be difficult to establish only upon clinical and radiological features. In spite of recent advances in neuroradiological imaging, these kinds of angiomas still(More)
The authors relate a clinical and radiological (X Ray and TDM tridimensional) study with an anthropological (dry skulls) study of plagiocephaly. The aim is to find with the aid of a physical examination, some anatomic parameters which permit to differentiate cranial asymmetry with coronal premature synostotic suture from functional deformation with(More)
We report 4 cases of central neurocytoma removed by a transfrontal approach with no recurrence after a mean follow up of 3 years. This uncommon lesion of the supratentorial ventricles (150 cases reported) occurs in young adults, and often induces intracranial hypertension secondary to an obstructive hydrocephalus. The CT scan, MRI and histopathological(More)
The plagiocephaly syndrome is an asymmetrical cranial deformity due to premature synostosis of a coronal hemi-suture. The predominant alteration is at the spheno-frontal suture. The classification is attempted between the isolated plagiocephaly (P) an plagiocephaly with hypertelorism, on one side, that are to be distinguished from complex asymmetrical(More)
The deformation of the posterior part of the skull (occipito-vertebral region), induced directly or indirectly, occurs in numerous pathological situations. Its significance is frequently overlooked. Lesions of the cranial content, alterations of the lambdoid suture or other premature synostosis, abnormal constraint related to posture or to muscular activity(More)
The authors report on two cases of spontaneous spinal epidural hematomas. The clinical and radiological (CT, MRI) features as well as the pathogenesis of this rare disease are discussed in comparison with the literature. The authors emphasize the necessity for early diagnosis and treatment as the condition can compromise the functional and even vital(More)
The authors report 11 cases of choroid plexus papillomas in children operated on from 1979 until 1993. The age ranges from 2 months to 14 years old. The most frequent location occurred in the lateral ventricles (7 cases) followed by the locations in the third ventricle (3 cases) and the fourth ventricle (1 case). A complete resection was performed in all(More)
