We report the case of a 51 years old woman who underwent replacement of a total prosthesis of the right hip under general anesthesia and during left lateral decubitus. During the surgical procedure we observed signs of hemorrhagic shock and a concealed bleeding was suspected. After a diagnostic peritoneal puncture we performed a midlaparotomy which revealed(More)

Although the so-called ‘aluminium hypothesis’ was popular in the 1970s and 1980s, it has gradually fallen out of favour in the past few years possibly following a number of inconclusive and contradictory human(More)
Enterogenous cysts (ECs) are endodermal lesions resulting from splitting anomalies in the neuroenteric canal. We report the case of a 64-year-old patient who presented with a sudden headache followed by collapse. Brain computed tomography revealed a hyperdense lesion in the anterior part of the third ventricle with obstructive hydrocephalus. A presumptive(More)
In recent years, new indications have been suggested for 5-ALA, particularly for cystic lesions. We report the use of 5-ALA fluorescence in an intraparenchymal supratentorial endodermal cyst of a 52-year-old female presenting with headache, progressive right side hemiparesis and anomic aphasia. She underwent an image-guided 5-ALA-assisted left(More)

MGMT methylation indicates an improved response to temozolomide chemotherapy; patients with 1p/19q co-deleted anaplastic oligodendrogliomas benefit preferentially from adjuvant chemotherapy. Pyrosequencing is a method that allows(More)
