A case of a 63-year-old woman with subfrontal schwannoma of the left side is presented. The patient had a two-month history of recent memory disturbance and unstable gait. Computed tomography represented an isodense mass lesion with large and small cystic components in the anterior cranial fossa, enhancing homogeneously after intravenous injection of(More)
Clinical analyses of 5 cases of cavernomas in the middle fossa were made to define specific clinical and radiological manifestations and thus improve the pre-operative diagnosis and treatment. From diagnostic and operative points of view, cavernomas in the middle fossa must be considered separately from those in other localities. Intracerebral cavernomas(More)
It is very rare for neurosurgeons to encounter cases of spinal cord injury caused by a broken acupuncture needle. A 45-year-old man was referred to our clinic because of urinary retention about two weeks after acupuncture therapy (a needle was broken during treatment). The patient showed no motor weakness, or sensory disturbance. The needle was seen(More)
The case of a 14-year-old boy presenting with hypergammaglobulinemia (immunoglobulin (Ig)G and IgA) and a cerebellopontine angle tumor is reported. The tumor was histologically confirmed as meningioma infiltrated with plasma cells, lymphocytes, and histiocytes. Immunohistochemical studies showed that the infiltrating plasma cells were stained by antibodies(More)
Anterior inferior cerebellar artery (AICA) aneurysms are very rare. We carried out four direct operations for AICA aneurysms including two distal AICA aneurysms using lateral suboccipital retrosigmoid approaches (LSRA). We successfully performed the clipping by LSRA. but hearing loss occurred except in one of our cases which involved a chronic term(More)
The effects of prostaglandin D2 (PGD2) on the growth of mouse malignant glioma cells were studied in vitro and in vivo. The in vitro studies consisted of various concentrations of prostaglandins (PG's) being added to cultures of mouse glioma cells. At concentrations above 2.5 micrograms/ml, PGD2 strongly inhibited the proliferation of glioma cells, whereas(More)
We report a case of intraorbital varix. A 16-year-old girl showed sudden left-sided exophthalmos after vomiting. After several episodes of vomiting, she developed complete loss of vision in the left eye, followed by orbital pain, disruption of eye movement, and periorbital swelling. No change in symptoms or signs was observed after the Valsalva maneuver or(More)
Numerous approaches have been used to access aneurysms of the vertebral artery(VA)-posterior inferior cerebellar artery(PICA)complex for microsurgical clipping. Here, we report the case of a patient with an unruptured aneurysm of the left VA-PICA complex that was successfully treated using a contralateral suboccipital approach. Computed tomography(More)
A 27-year-old woman presented with rebleeding from an intracranial arteriovenous malformation (AVM) 6 years after radiosurgery. Cerebral angiography demonstrated venous drainage change into a single drainer and cortical reflux due to drainage occlusion into the superior sagittal sinus. During surgery, multiple small feeders thought to be occluded on(More)
A 50-year-old female, who had a headache after Eustachian tube insufflation for her ear congestion, came to our hospital. CT and MRI revealed pneumocephalus and petrous ridge meningioma which destroyed petrous bone and air cells. Eustachian tube insufflation was considered to make the air coming into the middle ear, mastoid air cell and then into the(More)
