A series of 62 children with cerebral arteriovenous malformations admitted to our department in the course of 17 years (1975-1992) was reviewed in a retrospective study. In 54 cases hemorrhagic stroke was the first presenting symptom, followed by epilepsy in five cases. On admission 26 children presented with a neurological deficit, and 21 were admitted(More)
Ewing's sarcoma (ES) of the skull is rare. Herein, we present 2 cases of ES that involved the cranium in young children. In one case, the lesion originated in the petrous temporal bone; in the other, the frontal bone. Both children were acutely compromised neurologically by signs and symptoms of raised intracranial pressure. In both cases, radiographs(More)
Three groups of patients with single hemispheric brain abscesses or subdural empyemas, from 1 to 5 cm large, with similar initial prognosis, have been treated either by medical treatment alone (20), aspiration (21), or excision (15). Differences in survival were not found, but medical treatment alone was better for long term sequelae. Surgical procedures(More)
A case of an osteoblastoma located in the odontoid process in a 7 year-old boy who presented with torticollis is reported. CT scan and MRI disclosed the lesion, but diagnosis was established by a CT-guided needle biopsy. Surgery through a transoral approach allowed total excision of the tumor. This is, to our knowledge, the first case reported of an(More)
A 42-year-old man with a history of benign incidental dorsal trauma 5 years earlier presented with progressive weakness of the right leg for 2 years. Clinical examination revealed decreased left-sided pain, temperature, and light touch sensation below the level of T2, right leg weakness, normal proprioception, and increased deep tendon reflexes in the right(More)
A series of 19 children with congenital nasal dermoid cyst or fistulas admitted in our department between 1978 and 1992 was reviewed in a retrospective study. They were 8 females and 11 males, ages ranged from 9 months to 7 years (mean: 2 years and 4 months). At diagnosis 8 children presented with infection (superficial in 6 cases, neurological in 2 cases),(More)
Hypopituitarism related to cavernous sinus thrombosis is a very rare event which usually occurs at least 1 year after the acute stage. We report a case which distinguished itself from the previously reported cases through (i) its occurrence during the acute stage and (ii) its total recovery within 1 year. Early anterior hypopituitarism is probably more(More)
Intracranial or spinal epidural hematomas are almost always of post-traumatic origin, and rarely related to rupture of a dural vascular malformation or a hemostasis disorder. We report a case of spontaneous cerebral epidural hematoma observed in a young girl with homozygous sickle cell disease. After analysis of post-operative cerebral MRI, showing skull(More)
Software designed to help the neurosurgeon in the diagnosis of shunt malfunction is presented. This software allows the possibility to record on a 3.5 diskette a patient's clinical information and four views of a CT scan performed when the patient was doing perfectly well with his shunt. This diskette, operated by MS-DOS on any IBM-compatible personal(More)
