Solitary eosinophilic granuloma that involves the CNS is an uncommon lesion and most frequently affects the hypothalamus. We report a new and rare case of solitary eosinophilic granuloma of the left temporal lobe in a patient without systemic disease.

OBJECTIVES The purpose of this report was to review our experience with stereotactic radiosurgery in the management of patients with residual neurocytomas after initial surgery. METHODS Between October 1996 and December 2001, four patients with central neurocytoma were treated by surgery and subsequently underwent linear accelerator (LINAC) radiosurgery.(More)
INTRODUCTION AND CLINICAL CASE We report a new unusual case of a patient without known familiar history of melanocytic schwannoma or Carney complex with multiple melanocytic schwannoma in the spinal canal.
