A 48-year-old woman became totally deaf after a head injury. Magnetic resonance imaging showed bilateral contusions around the inferior colliculi and the brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEP) failed to show any abnormality. This case demonstrates that small, symmetrical, bilateral lesions around the inferior colliculi may cause deafness and may still(More)
Twenty cases of intrapetrous lesions were studied by a 1.5 T magnetic resonance (MR) unit. In all cases, comparisons were made between MR, CT and clinical findings. Our present material included 9 cholesteatomas, 1 cholesterol cyst, 3 primary epidermoid carcinomas, 2 metastatic neoplasms, 1 glomus jugulare tumor and 4 facial neurinomas. Gadolinium was(More)
PURPOSE Altered cerebrovascular blood flow has been proposed as a mechanism for multiple sclerosis (MS). The primary objective of this study was to measure arterial and venous blood flow in adolescent MS patients and healthy controls (HC), in whom confounding factors such as age and lifestyle are less influential. MATERIALS AND METHODS Phase-contrast(More)
Primary cervical spine osteosarcoma is rare and is considered to have a poor prognosis. We describe an adolescent patient suffering from primary cervical spine osteosarcoma with delayed diagnosis. Nineteen months deficit and symptom-free survival was achieved after an aggressive multi-modality treatment comprising surgery and adjuvant chemoradiotherapy.
Nine cases of recurrent petrous cholesteatomas have been studied by a 1,5 T MR unit. Gadolinium was injected in 1 case. In all cases, comparison between MR, CT and clinical findings were made. MR allows for accurate topographic study and assessment of cholesteatomas extension, in particular in the posterior fossa and skull base. Relationships with the(More)
