Cataclysmal hemorrhage occurred in eight patients with known aggressive squamous cell tumors of the head and neck. Angiography showed neovascularity, narrowing, beading of affected arteries, and pseudoaneurysms. Postembolization residual stump formation was seen in a few patients. A total of 11 embolization procedures were performed in these eight patients.(More)
PURPOSE 1) To evaluate the scope of imaging findings seen with spin-echo MR and MR angiography (MRA) in patients with pulsatile tinnitus; 2) to determine whether MRA adds additional imaging information (to that provided by spin-echo MR) necessary for determining the cause of pulsatile tinnitus; and 3) to suggest MR and MRA imaging techniques for evaluation(More)
AIM To assess the value of unenhanced brain computed tomography (CT) in the diagnosis of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST). MATERIALS AND METHODS Unenhanced brain CT images of 26 patients with proven CVST were mixed with 26 age and sex-matched images from patients without CVST. Four readers reviewed the 52 brain CT images and were asked to score the(More)
The radiologic studies of 107 patients with pulsatile tinnitus or a vascular retrotympanic mass were retrospectively reviewed. Of the 100 patients with pulsatile tinnitus, 25 had objective tinnitus. A vascular tympanic membrane was present in 37 cases (35%). Normal vascular variants were present in 23 patients (21%). Twenty-seven patients (25%) had acquired(More)
The authors retrospectively describe the computed tomographic (CT) findings in 35 patients with peptic ulcer disease. Three of eight patients with gastritis or duodenitis had bowel-wall thickening. Ten of the remaining 27 patients had CT evidence of ulcer perforation (n = 2) or penetration (n = 8), four cases of which were unsuspected clinically. Both(More)
We report the case of a female patient with severe acute necrotizing pancreatitis associated with hypercalcemia as first manifestation of primary hyperparathyroidism caused by a benign parathyroid adenoma. Initially the acute pancreatitis was treated conservatively. The patient subsequently underwent surgical resection of the parathyroid adenoma and(More)
The contrast material-enhanced computed tomographic (CT) scans of 18 patients at risk for acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) who had painless facial swelling were reviewed. All scans demonstrated parotid cysts and diffuse homogeneous cervical adenopathy. The cysts were bilateral in all but three cases. Eleven of 13 patients tested had antibodies to(More)
The magnetic resonance (MR) imaging studies and clinical records of 29 patients with typical or atypical trigeminal neuralgia (TN) were retrospectively reviewed and compared with the MR studies of 30 patients imaged for reasons unrelated to the fifth cranial nerve. The symptomatic patients were in three groups. Group 1 included those without masses or(More)
PURPOSE This study was designed to measure response rates and survival in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and suspected Toxoplasma encephalitis treated empirically and in AIDS patients treated for biopsy-proven toxoplasmosis. PATIENTS AND METHODS AIDS patients identified at Bellevue Hospital between August 1985 and May 1986, who(More)
