Computed tomography scan in a 43-year-old woman revealed a fusiform mass involving the falx. Pathological tissue removed at craniotomy revealed a hyalinizing plasmacytic granulomatosis composed of masses of lymphocytes, plasmacytes, and various sized islands of hyalinized fibers arranged in parallel and surrounded by multinucleated giant cells.(More)
A peculiar nonneoplastic oligodendroglial proliferative abnormality associated with cerebral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) was present in three patients. Histological examination of biopsy material revealed dense oligodendroglial tissue reminiscent of oligodendroglioma in the white matter adjoining the AVMs. Careful consideration of clinical and(More)
Vascular musculature was studied in cerebral arteriovenous malformations using a monoclonal antibody against the muscle protein actin in 20 cases. The more typical vessels (arterial and venous types) and a number of abnormalities of the muscular layer were identified. The latter included (1) partially developed media; (2) two layers of the media separated(More)
Arteriovenous malformations of the small intestine are a vanishingly rare cause of hemorrhage from the gastrointestinal tract. To our knowledge, only one previous case has been reported. We describe a 41-year-old man with massive gastrointestinal bleeding as the result of a jejunal arteriovenous malformation. We discuss the histologic differentiation from(More)
A case of oligodendroglial hamartoma is reported in a 39-year-old man with a 20-year history of petit mal seizures. Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the brain showed a small focal area of abnormal decreased signal on T1-weighted images of the right temporal lobe. The patient became seizure free after the removal of the lesion and treatment with carbamazepine.(More)
A 31-year-old black male with sarcoidosis en-plaque of the dura mater, which is a rare morphological variant of neurosarcoidosis (NS), presented at our clinic. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the head with gadolinium showed non-specific enhancement of both tentorial leaves extending to the floor of right middle cranial fossa and cavernous sinus. The(More)
