UNLABELLED Synovial sarcomas are soft tissue tumors that rarely occur in the head and neck The purpose of this report is to accrue data on this sarcoma at a rare site, and to highlight the histopathological differential diagnosis with other cervical tumors. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two cases of cervico-facial tumors were reported in 26 and 27 year old women.(More)
Sarcomatous transformation in chordoma is a very rare condition and has been emphasized as a distinct entity because of its more aggressive clinical course. Here we describe a case of dedifferentiated chordoma arising from the skull base region of an 11-year-old boy, with tumor recurrence within one year. This tumor showed features of pleomorphic cell(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE There are several reports regarding the epidemiology of pediatric brain tumors. However, little is known about the profile of pediatric brain tumors in Africa especially in Morocco in particular. The authors report the results of epidemiological analysis of a retrospective review of childhood primary brain tumors in a single(More)
BACKGROUND No epidemiological data about central nervous system tumors in Morroco have been published. The objective of the present study is to assess topographic and demographic patterns of a large series of histologically confirmed tumors of central nervous system (CNS), skull and vertebral column, examined in the main neuropathology laboratory of the(More)
Clinicians order neurosurgery frozen sections in order to answer three questions: is the specimen tumor tissue? is it benign or malignant? what is its histological type? We studied the diagnostic accuracy of 1 315 frozen sections of central nervous system tumors, performed between 1988 and 1999, and compared it with data in the literature. Agreement between(More)
Desmoplastic gangliogliomas are rare mixed glial and neuronal cerebral tumors, especially described in infants below 4 years of age but exceptional cases have been reported in young adults. These tumors are generally localised in parietal or temporal lobes, present as a large cystic lesion with peripheral contrast enhancement. They also have characteristic(More)
Ocular amyloidosis is infrequent, and the palpebral location is uncommon. It usually has a primary localized form, but can occur in systemic or familial amyloidosis. The diagnosis is mainly made by histopathology. Its treatment is surgical and the prognosis depends on clinical presentation and recurrences. We report the case of a 54-year-old woman with no(More)
OBJECTIVES Infantile myofibromatosis (IMF) are integrated in the group of fibromatosis juvenile-type which are benign mesenchymal lesions, characterized morphologically by a proliferation of fibroblasts and myofibroblastes, with perivascular pattern. Through a case of solitary myofibroma of the mandible, we will emphasize anatomo-clinical features and(More)
