Classically meningiomas present and evolve with a progressive course. Meningiomas manifest themselves mainly in middle and old age when the incidence of strokes is higher. The authors report three instances of meningioma with acute haemorrhagic onset. The clinical picture of our cases consisted of subarachnoid bleeding, subdural hematoma and intracerebral(More)
Gonorrheal urethritis was induced in three males by intraurethral instillation of predominantly pilus+ protein II- gonococci. Virtually all gonococci reisolated from the infected men exhibited protein II+ phenotype. The reisolated gonococci expressed five distinct outer membrane protein II species. Protein IIc+ organisms predominated in urines of all three(More)
Atretic cephalocele appears as an unimportant and benign lesion. This malformation consists of meningeal and vestigial tissues (arachnoid, glial, or central nervous system rests). The authors report the findings in 16 cases (seven parietal and nine occipital) of rudimentary cephaloceles. Twelve patients presented with associated brain abnormalities detected(More)
A 10-year-old boy underwent a posterior fossa craniectomy for removal of a grade 2 cerebellar astrocytoma. Dural closure was achieved by the placement of a dural graft. Eight years later the patient developed dementia and myoclonus. Electroencephalography demonstrated generalized slow activity that evolved into a pattern of periodic triphasic waves.(More)
The authors report the case of an infant who presented with an epidermoid tumor contained in a lumbosacral myelomeningocele. The association of spina bifida aperta and congenital intraspinal tumors is rare. Only two cases of teratoma and two cases of epidermoid tumors arising within a meningocele have been documented previously.
The authors report a case of a ventricular oligodendroglioma associated with a cortical arteriovenous malformation. The patient presented with subarachnoid hemorrhage. Computed tomographic scan showed an intraventricular hyperdense lesion, mimicking a hematoma. Angiography revealed a superficial arteriovenous malformation in the right parietal lobe,(More)
In this article we report the cases of an 11-year-old girl who presented with an occipital atretic cephalocele and 2 of her siblings who had similar occipital lesions. Neuroimaging studies in these three instances showed a spectrum of posterior fossa cystic malformations. The girl's parents and a further sibling were also investigated by neuroimaging(More)
Malignant rhabdoid tumor (MRT) is a recently described variety of childhood renal neoplasm. MRT arising primarily in the central nervous system (CNS) is still a rather unfamiliar pathological entity and is frequently misdiagnosed as medulloblastoma or primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET). We describe a 7-month-old boy who harbored a CNS-MRT that(More)
The authors report a series of three children with symptomatic congenital arachnoid cyst of the lateral ventricles. Presenting symptoms consisted of macrocephally, delay in psychomotor development, and seizures. CT findings were of a well-defined cystic lesion placed in the atrium of the lateral ventricle. One child was treated by direct cyst exposure and(More)
