Eleven cases of intracranial lipoma, diagnosed during life by computerized tomography (CT) scanning, are presented. Clinical symptoms related to the lesions were present in eight. The CT scan established the diagnosis of intracranial lipoma on the basis of typical x-ray absorption and location. Only dermoid cysts and teratomas may produce a similar CT… (More)

The clinical and electroencephalographic observations in two patients with verified necrotising herpes-encephalitis are presented. In one of the ill persons it was possible to isolate the virus. With these two observations four additional ones published previously are compaired electroencephalographically. Thereby the EEG reveal a certain variation in form… (More)
The unusual status of the cerebellar astrocytoma is based upon clinical and histological evidence. "Bergstrand Tumour" is proposed as a new name for it. A new concept of its origin is put forward, namely that it is derived from the "tanycytes" (Horstmann) of the periventricular structures.
The electroclinical and pathological features of two infantile cases of acute necrotizing herpetic encephalitis are reported.
