Subarachnoid haemorrhage due to cauda equina tumour is rare. We report two myxopapillary ependymomas of the conus terminalis, presenting with in this way. Rims of low signal were observed at their upper and lower borders, mainly on T2-weighted images. This finding has been described in ependymomas of the cervical region but not, to our knowledge, in(More)
The imaging findings of intra-articular haemangiopericytomas have not been described previously. We report on a 35-year-old man with a primary malignant haemangiopericytoma of the left knee joint. MRI demonstrated joint effusion and a heterogeneous mass with haemorrhagic components and multiple peripheral serpentine signal voids, suggesting the presence of(More)
This study was designed to investigate the prognostic relevance of ovarian tumour angiogenesis in terms of tumour angiogenic activity (TAA) and vascular survival ability (VSA), i.e. the ability of newly formed vessels to survive once incorporated into the main tumour mass. TAA was assessed at the edge of the invading tumour, while VSA was evaluated in inner(More)
We have analyzed data collected over a 26-year period for influences of new diagnostic imaging techniques (ultrasound, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging) on the size, stage, and other parameters of renal cell carcinomas at the time of first diagnosis. We reviewed retrospectively the records of 203 patients who underwent operations at our(More)
Spontaneous pneumomediastinum (SPM) is an uncommon disease defined as a non-traumatic presence of free air in the mediastinum, without underlying disease. We present a 13-year- old boy who was previously in a perfect health, who was presented with subcutaneous cervical emphysema, dysphagia, chest and neck pain. The chest roentgenogram revealed the presence(More)
Radiobiological data suggest that prostate cancer has a low alpha/beta ratio. Large radiotherapy fractions may, therefore, prove more efficacious than standard radiotherapy, while radiotherapy acceleration should further improve control rates. This study describes the radiobiology of a conformal hypofractionated accelerated radiotherapy scheme for the(More)
Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) is a rare disorder characterized by pancytopenia, hemolysis, and thrombosis. Abdominal vein thrombosis is a life-threatening manifestation of this disease. We present a patient with complete spleen necrosis due to thrombosis of the splenic vessels. After splenectomy, other causes of thrombophilia were excluded and(More)
