Melanocytomas are present in leptomeninges and arise from neural crest during early embryonic development. They are a rare entity and usually occur in the thoracic spine and infratentorial region. We report a 32-year-old female with meningeal melanocytoma of D9-10. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed an intramedullary spinal tumor at D9-D10.(More)
Calcifying pseudoneoplasm of neuraxis (CAPNON) is a rare but distinctive lesion of the central nervous system. These are benign lesions that mimic ossified vascular lesions clinically and radiologically, and can be cured by complete resection. We report a case in a 48 year old male with complex partial seizures who had a right temporobasal calcified lesion(More)
Tubular aggregates (TAs) are inclusions described in skeletal muscle in a variety of disorders. In a retrospective analysis, TAs were found in 18 (0.24%) cases and involved a spectrum of clinical phenotypes. Ultrastructurally, four distinct types of aggregates were noted. There was no correlation between the clinical phenotypes, duration of illness and(More)
Atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT) is a highly malignant embryonal CNS tumor, generally unresponsive to any form of therapy, uniformly fatal within 1 year. We report 15 cases of AT/RT diagnosed at our center over a period of 5 years (2003-08). Tumors were located in different sites of the neuraxis, posterior fossa being the most common (n = 10)(More)
Renal Cell Carcinoma metastasizing to pancreas is uncommon, occurring in 1-2% of cases; lung being the most common site. It is usually asymptomatic, or may present as abdominal pain, weight loss, pancreatitis or gastrointestinal bleeding. Herein, we present a case of 75-year-old male presented as intraabdominal bleeding to the Emergency Department. Contrast(More)
Primary Testicular Lymphoma (PTL) is a rare intermediate to high grade tumour, diffuse large cell being the most common type. Unlike nodal Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL), testicular DLBCL has a less aggressive course and better prognosis. Metastasis is uncommon in testicular DLBCL. Commonly involved sites are contralateral testes, Waldeyer's ring,(More)
