The term hippocampal sclerosis was originally used to describe a shrunken and hardened hippocampus, which histologically displayed neuronal loss and glial proliferation. These alterations are mainly located in the hilus of the dentate gyrus and in the CA1 and CA3 pyramidal cell layers but all hippocampal regions may show neuronal cell loss to varying(More)
Dermoids cysts are embrionary benign lesions that comprise approximately 0.04-0.25% of all intracranial tumors. Occasionally they break and spread their content into subarachnoid space and/or lateral ventricles causing several acute or delayed symptoms. Debut of this type of tumor as acute stroke is poorly reflected in literature. We present a 26-year-old(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the most sensitive imaging technique for assessing brainstem involvement in neurodegenerative diseases. An MRI can assess the degree of atrophy of the brainstem and alterations in signal intensity on T2-weighted images in the affected areas, which are the main imaging findings found in these diseases. Besides,(More)
INTRODUCTION Intracranial hypotension syndrome (IHS) is a syndrome with a variable aetiology and clinical presentation that is, in most cases, caused by leakage of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) through the thecal sac. Orthostatic headache associated to the typical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings, secondary to depletion of CSF, is the key to a correct(More)
Because of its different functions and organization, the temporal lobe may be divided into lateral and medial parts. This separation may be useful for teaching purposes, since the medial temporal lobe needs a separated and a more precise study because of its complex structure and because it is the substrate where some specific types of epilepsy originate.(More)
