OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to analyze the usefulness of preoperative language functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), by correlating fMRI data with intraoperative cortical stimulation results for patients with brain tumors. METHODS Naming and verb generation tasks were used, separately or in combination, for 14 right-handed patients with(More)
BACKGROUND Few data are available on the relationship between fluid-attenuated inversion recovery vascular hyperintensities and proximal middle cerebral artery occlusion prognosis. OBJECTIVES To assess a fluid-attenuated inversion recovery vascular hyperintensities score (FVHS) and explore its relationship with recanalization status and clinical outcomes(More)
A 37-year-old woman, during her second remission of acute myeloid leukemia, presented with severe neck pain and cervico-brachial neuralgia. Investigation revealed a C5-C6 spondylodiscitis. A CT-guided anterior biopsy decompressed the mass, immediately alleviated the symptoms, and isolated a rare yeast: Blastoschizomyces capitatus. To our knowledge, only(More)
INTRODUCTION From January 1998 to December 2002, endovascular treatment (EVT) was used as first intention in all patients with ruptured aneurysms. The objective of this study was to analyze the results of this therapeutic strategy. METHODS Among 401 patients admitted with a subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), 73 (18%) had a nonaneurysmal perimesencephalic SAH,(More)
INTRODUCTION A 14-year-old girl, followed in our department for Marfan syndrome, presented with postural headache for a month. Neurological examination was normal. The diagnosis of intracranial hypotension syndrome was suspected. DISCUSSION Bilateral subdural hematomas were found on brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and spinal MRI showed large(More)
We report the case of a patient with bilateral and symmetrical T2 hyperintensities of the middle cerebellar peduncles. She had a history of left pontine infarction 8 months before. This was attributed to bilateral Wallerian degeneration. MR Spectroscopy showed decreased N-acetyl aspartate/Creatine (NAA/Cr) ratio in the cerebellar peduncles as well as in the(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE An atypical form of fibromuscular dysplasia located in the internal carotid-bulb (CaFMD) is thought to be uncommon and is poorly described as a cause of ischemic stroke in the young. This study aimed to obtain a better description of CaFMD in Afro-Caribbean population, who could be particularly affected by it. METHODS This study(More)
