We report 2 cases of meningiomas with rhabdoid morphology but lacking histological features of malignancy. Both occurred in adult women, one arising from the superior surface of the tentorium and the other in the Sylvian fissure. The tumors showed light microscopic, immunohistochemical and ultrastructural evidence of meningothelial differentiation together(More)
Angioinvasive complications of Scedosporium infections are rare. We report two cases of mycotic aneurysm, following apparent localized infection, due to Scedosporium apiospermum and Pseudallescheria boydii. The thoracoabdominal aorta was affected in one patient, and cerebral vessels were affected in the other. Despite voriconazole therapy and surgical(More)
AIMS To perform a clinicopathological analysis of a series of primary cutaneous Ewing sarcomas/primitive neuroectodermal tumours (ES/PNET) to highlight the pathological features, discuss the differential diagnosis, emphasise the role of molecular testing (particularly fluorescence in situ hybridisation, FISH) in diagnosis and outline the patients' clinical(More)
Myosin storage myopathy/hyaline body myopathy is a rare congenital myopathy, with less than 30 cases reported in the literature. It is characterised by the presence of subsarcolemmal hyaline bodies in type 1 muscle fibres and predominantly proximal muscle weakness. Recently, a single mutation (Arg1845Trp) in the slow/beta-cardiac myosin heavy chain gene(More)
A case of cerebellar liponeurocytoma in a 34-year-old man is reported. There are only 19 other cases reporting this entity in the medical literature. The diagnostic, radiological and clinical features associated with this tumour are reviewed and discussed in relation to our case. The differences in behaviour and prognosis between medulloblastoma and(More)
The toxicology of metallic mercury on motor neurons and their processes requires further work to resolve controversial implications in the aetiology of human motor neuron disease (MND). The assessment of experimental neurotoxicity in the peripheral motor system is, however, technically problematic and difficult to interpret. The mean number of axons in a(More)
Macrophagic myofasciitis is characterised by sheets of macrophages in striated muscle, a few lymphocytes and inconspicuous muscle fibre damage. It is due to aluminium contained in vaccines, and is localised to the inoculation site. We report the first Australian case, detected incidentally when investigating a raised serum creatine kinase level.
