PURPOSE Hydatidosis affects the bone in 0.5 to 2% of cases, with 44% of these cases involving the spine. We report 8 cases of vertebral involvement evaluated by CT and/or MRI. Materials and Methods. This retrospective study from January 1996 to August 2000 included seven patients (5 men and 3 women) aged between 28 and 65 years old. The mean age was 45(More)
The authors report a case of cauda equina compression by intradural hydatid cyst. An 18-year-old man presented with paraparesis and sphincter dysfunction. MRI showed an intradural cystic lesion extending from L1 to L2 with low signal intensity on T1 and high signal intensity on T2. The cyst was removed after laminectomy and opening of the dural sac.(More)
Brain metastasis of choriocarinoma is uncommon. These tumors develop in women of childbearing age and commonly produce signs and symptoms of subarachnoid hemorrhage, intracerebral hemorrhage, or brain tumor. Diagnosis can be established by histologic study of operative swabs and bioassay of the patient's blood, urine and cerebrospinal fluid for chorionic(More)
Primary Ewing sarcoma of the calvarial skull is very rare, found in less than 1% of the cases. Frontal and parietal convexities are the common sites of occurrence. We report two cases of primary Ewing sarcoma of the skull (in 13- and 14-year-old boys. The first tumor involved the right temporal region and exhibited unclear osteolytic appearance on skull(More)
Tuberous sclerosis is a phakomatosis with central nervous system manifestations characterized by 4 lesions detectable on neuro-imaging: tubers, white matter abnormalities, subependymal nodules and subependymal astrocytomas. The first three are benign lesions composed of by identical cytological lesions varying only in size and location. At CT, enhancement(More)
Hemangiopericytoma is an uncommon mesenchymal neoplasm that rarely affects the spinal canal. We report a case of thoracic epidural hemangiopericytoma in a 39-year-old man with symptoms of spinal cord compression studied by myelo-computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Total resection was followed by complete recovery. Postoperative(More)
Atypical sciatic pain without apparent discogenic origin should raise the possibility of a non-discogenic etiology, especially tumoral but also infectious or inflammatory. We report the case of a young patient presenting with non-discogenic S1 radiculopathy due to sciatic nerve involvement in the subpiriformis canal secondary to piriformis muscle(More)
Laryngeal tuberculosis is a rare disease. It is almost always associated with pulmonary tuberculosis. It occurs generally in adults without BCG vaccination or in cases of the acquired immune deficiency syndrome. On laryngoscopy and imaging, it often simulates laryngeal carcinoma, and confirmation is always histological. We report the case of a 36-year-old(More)
