Leukoencephalopathy with severe hypertension is a recently described entity in nephrology, with only a few case reports to date in children. We prospectively studied 18 children with severe hypertension to evaluate the clinical features, severity, reversibility, and prognosis. All were subjected to clinical and biochemical tests, magnetic resonance imaging… (More)
Pulsatile proptosis is caused by vascular lesion of orbit or by herniation of brain through bony defect in orbit. Pulsatile proptosis secondary to a metastatic tumor of orbit is very uncommon. We report a 69-year-old male who presented with pulsatile proptosis owing to metastasis of an asymptomatic renal cell carcinoma.
Four Indian patients with occipital lesions of cysticercosis presented with visual hallucinations. Neuro-ophthalmic and systemic examinations were normal in all cases except for one patient who had a partial homonymous hemianopia. Electroencephalography was normal in all cases. Neuroimaging revealed ring-enhancing lesions in the occipital lobe typical of… (More)
PURPOSE To report an unusual presentation of tuberculosis. CASE REPORT A six-year old boy presented with left upper lid swelling of 15 days' duration and an asymptomatic midline neck mass from 2 months ago. Imaging studies, and microbiologic tests which demonstrated acid-fast bacilli in the fine needle aspirate of the thyroid mass, both confirmed a… (More)
PURPOSE To report two cases of a cystic isolated extraocular muscle abscess in a young boy. METHOD Case report. RESULTS Two cases of young boys with a cystic isolated extraocular muscle abscess are described. Each presented as an inflammatory lesion in the orbit that had been stable for approximately three weeks. Neurodiagnostic imaging of the two cases… (More)
A twenty-six year old male with decreased vision in right eye was diagnosed with non-rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. Further evaluation revealed a yet undiagnosed left testicular mass found to be choriocarcinoma on histopathology. Chemotherapy resulted in complete remission; however, there was no improvement in vision. There is a substantial risk of… (More)
The authors present an unusual case of a polar mass in the frontal lobe of the brain, causing acute monocular visual loss in a 50-year-old woman with history of breast carcinoma treated with surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. Neuroimaging demonstrated herniation of the gyrus rectus into the suprasellar cistern resulting in compression of the anterior… (More)
We report a case of partial third nerve palsy resulting from a cystic lesion located at the orbital apex. Imaging was suggestive of cystic schwanomma but histopathology of the lesion confirmed epidermoid cyst, which is a rare tumour of the orbit.
