Clinicopathological features of solitary fibrous tumor of the meninges: An immunohistochemical reappraisal of cases previously diagnosed to be fibrous meningioma or hemangiopericytoma
Cases of solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) of the meninges are increasingly being reported. However, the real incidence of SFT among meningeal tumors has yet to be determined. We thereforeExpand
Peritumoral brain edema in meningiomas--influence of vascular supply on its development.
In a series of 35 patients with intracranial meningiomas, factors influencing the development of peritumoral brain edema (PTBE) were analyzed. We used numbers of the Edema Index as the extent ofExpand
A comparative study of thallium-201 SPET, carbon-11 methionine PET and fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose PET for the differentiation of astrocytic tumours
Abstract. Thallium-201, carbon-11 methionine (MET) and fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) have all been used to assess brain tumours. The aim of this study was to determine which of these tracersExpand
Macrophage infiltration and heme oxygenase-1 expression correlate with angiogenesis in human gliomas.
Macrophages are key participants in angiogenesis. In this study on human brain tumors, we first investigated whether macrophage infiltration is associated with angiogenesis and malignant histologicalExpand
Intraventricular neurocytoma: clinicopathological features of six cases.
The clinical and pathological features of six patients with so-called "intraventricular oligodendroglioma" are reported. The tumor had no predilection for sex, and the patients' age at diagnosisExpand
