Early identification and treatment of epidural neoplasm, before the development of significant neurologic deficits, provides the best opportunity for a favorable outcome. Among the many patients with symptoms, signs, or scintigraphic or radiographic findings suggesting possible epidural disease, a small proportion will have the lesion. The selection of… (More)
We report the clinical course of a 16-year-old girl in remission from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma who presented in cardiogenic shock due to a severe anthracycline cardiomyopathy. The patient was initially stabilized using central extracorporeal membrane oxygenation support, followed by conversion to a left ventricular assist device. Unexpected evidence of… (More)

Failure to develop of the corpus callosum and the neighboring midline structures results in abnormal proximity between the interhemispheric fissure (IHF) and the third ventricle. We have called this finding the IHF sign of dysgenesis of the corpus callosum (DCC). In a retrospective study of 39 cases the presence of the IHF sign was assessed in conjunction… (More)
Symptomatic atlantoaxial dislocation occurs rarely in psoriatic arthropathy and has previously been reported only as a late complication in this disorder. We report severe upward axial dislocation and acquired basilar impression as a presenting manifestation of psoriatic arthropathy. Magnetic resonance imaging is useful in evaluating this condition.
Despite the extensive literature on the radiographic appearance of basal ganglia calcification in hypoparathyroidism, the vascular and perivascular deposits that are the hallmark of this disease have not been described radiographically. We report two patients with postsurgical hypoparathyroidism in whom such vascular calcification was observed on CT and was… (More)
