A new syndrome of 'pure agraphia for Kanji' is described in 3 Japanese subjects with lesions in the left posteroinferior temporal region. Kanji (ideogram or morphogram) can be compared with orthographically irregular or ambiguous words in some European languages, since it is impossible to write Kanji characters unless each one of them is learned and(More)
Thirty-nine cases of intracranial meningiomas were analyzed to identify factors causing brain edema. Edema was significantly correlated with tumor size and the destruction of the leptomeninges and cortex. Meningotheliomatous meningioma tended to have more peritumoral edema. There was no correlation between the presence of edema and location of the tumor or(More)
This study involved 1628 patients who underwent surgery for gastric cancer between 1964 and 1973. No gastric resection was performed in 330 patients because of extensive cancer, and all died within 2.5 years. A noncurative resection was performed in 286 patients and most of these died within 3 years, although 12.2% survived for 5 years and 9.7% survived for(More)
A case of glioblastoma multiforme of spinal cord followed by intracranial dissemination was reported. A 20-year-old man was admitted on Sep. 22, 1981, with motor disturbance of both legs and loss of urinary control. Neurological examination showed spastic paraplegia with bilateral Babinski signs. Abdominal and cremaster reflexes were absent. There was no(More)
Forty supratentorial meningiomas were analyzed to identify factors causing peritumoral brain edema. Parasagittal, sphenoid ridge, and olfactory groove meningiomas induced edema more frequently than those in other locations. Meningothelial meningiomas were more invasive than other types and were associated with more peritumoral edema. Brain edema correlated(More)
This study was aimed to investigate the correlation between recurrent hemorrhage of ruptured intracranial aneurysm and local fibrinolytic activity of aneurysmal fibrin plug. The fibrinolytic activity of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) was investigated in 63 patients with various neurological diseases by means of modified fibrin plate method. No plasmin was(More)
Gangliogliomas are rare central nervous system neoplasms. The clinical features, radiological findings and surgical results in 6 histologically proven cases of gangliogliomas in the cerebral hemisphere are reviewed. The ages varied between 8 and 58 years old at the time of diagnosis. Five patients had seizure disorders without focal neurological deficit or(More)
