AIM This cytohistopathological study was performed for a better knowledge of phenotypes derived from pluripotent stem cells, as well as for precise location of stem cells within the vascular niche in the brain. METHODS We used light and transmission electron microscopy to demonstrate the presence of stem cells in the vascular wall of microvessels in the(More)
OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE Angiocentric glioma (AG) is a recently described tumor of the brain which was included as a distinct entity in the 2007 WHO classification. To date only 26 cases have been reported in the literature. We describe two additional cases of this possibly confusing lesion of the brain. Emphasis is put on variations in the(More)
Meningiomas rarely occur in the pineal region, but they can reach huge diameters. We presented the case of a patient with a very large meningioma of the pineal region (6x5x4 cm). The tumor, developed from the falcotentorial junction, was totally removed via an occipital interhemispheric transtentorial approach with minimal postoperative neurological(More)
INTRODUCTION Since May 2005, we have started to treat the intracranial aneurysms endovascular way as an alternative minimally invasive technique to the classic neurosurgery treatment. OBJECTIVE Studying the patients' demographics, clinical presentation, aneurysm size and configuration, type of coils used for embolization, the percentage of compaction and(More)

An equilibrium similarity analysis is applied to the transport equation for <(deltatheta)(2)>, the second-order temperature structure function, for decaying homogeneous isotropic turbulence. A possible solution is that the temperature variance <theta(2)> decays as x(n), and that the characteristic length scale, identifiable with the Taylor microscale(More)
BACKGROUND Cerebrospinal fluid fistulae complicated by meningitis have been reported to appear as late as 36 years after the causal head injury. METHODS We present this 54-year-old woman with a recurrent cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhea that started 27 years after a road accident. The surgical exploration revealed a linear fracture of the cribriform plate.(More)
This paper reports on 14 cases of cranial and orbital epidermoid tumours, of which 2 epicranial, 4 extradural intracranial, 4 fronto-orbital-sinusal, 2 orbital and 2 orbito-nasal cases. Referring to these cases and data published in the specialised literature, the authors show that this type of tumour is more frequent in males, and is generally of(More)
