OBJECTIVE Thickened fatty filum terminale (FFT) can cause tethered cord syndrome (TCS) and can be easily diagnosed on magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. We aimed to assess a) the incidence, distribution and clinical significance of the incidentally detected FFT in Kuwaiti population and b) the relationship between degenerative disk disease (DDD) and thickness… (More)
We present computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of a very rare case of a primary epidermoid tumor of the jugular foramen (JF). A 45-year-old male patient presented with gradually progressive vertigo and tinnitus. CT and MRI scans revealed a 3.5 cm right-sided JF tumor with characteristic bright signal (restricted diffusion)… (More)
There are very few reported cases of regression of large cervical disc herniation without any intervention-the so-called spontaneous regression, demonstrated using MRI. We report a rare and interesting case of MRI that demonstrated near complete regression of a large herniated cervical intervertebral disc, without any surgical treatment.
Intrathoracic rib (IR) is a very rare anomaly in which a normal, an accessory, or a bifid rib lies within the chest cavity and may originate from a vertebra or a rib. It is more commonly present on the right side, and sometimes it may be associated with vertebral anomalies. Only 50 cases have been reported to date in the literature. In most cases, the IR is… (More)
Lipomas constitute less than 5% of primary brain tumors. Pericallosal lipomas (PCLp) constitute almost half of all intracranial lipomas. Corpus callosal anomalies commonly occur in cases with PCLps. Although PCLp is often described as corpus callosal lipoma, it is most often pericallosal in location. PCLps may have calcification in the periphery and may… (More)
BACKGROUND Supination and pronation movements occur primarily at the forearm though are possible at the wrist joint too. The axial rotation of the wrist also called the radiometacarpal rotation has been quantified but for its passive range which may never occur during the day-to-day routine activities. It is normally not possible for the wrist joint to… (More)
