Solitary fibrous tumours are rare spindle cell tumours that generally arise from the pleura but on rare occasions arise in other locations such as the head and neck region, stomach and retroperitoneum. Very few reports exist on the imaging findings of these tumours in extra pleural sites such as the mesentery. We report the computed tomography (CT) imaging(More)
Aims and Objectives: To compare the effect of anxiety and depression on unilateral trans tibial amputees those who are using conventional and modular patellar tendon bearing (PTB) prosthesis with stump exercises. Material and Methods: A sample of 40 persons with below knee amputation who were trained to wear pros-thesis were studied with an experimental(More)
CASE REPORT A 3-day-old baby was referred to our institution with seizures since birth and a presumptive diagnosis of cerebral tumor detected by prenatal ultrasound. Computed tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance (MR) imaging performed immediately after birth revealed the presence of an enhancing mass in the left cerebral hemisphere. DISCUSSION The(More)
The authors describe imaging patterns of intracranial metastases in 2 children with grade 4 neuroblastoma. Central nervous system metastases from neuroblastoma are extremely rare and may involve the cerebral parenchyma, leptomeninges, or dura. Cerebral parenchymal metastases can be cystic with mural nodules or solid with hemorrhagic elements. The first(More)
Frontonasal encephaloceles involve herniation of meninges and brain tissue through defects in the floor of the anterior cranial fossa affecting the frontal, ethmoid and nasal bones. Subependymal nodular heterotopias are malformations of cortical development resulting from abnormal neuronal migration. This report describes the coexistence and association of(More)
This report describes the case of a 50-year-old woman with carcinomatous meningitis from squamous cell carcinoma of the uterine cervix. Ultrasound showed an irregular hypoechoic mass in the cervix. Contrast enhanced computed tomography imaging revealed intense linear enhancement along the falx cerebri suggestive of pachymeningeal metastasis with involvement(More)
Diabetic muscle infarction (DMI) occurs as a rare complication of long standing or severe diabetes mellitus. The condition usually occurs spontaneously and patients usually present with acute pain and swelling of affected muscles which persists for weeks, and resolves spontaneously without intervention. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is the modality of(More)
This case report describes the CT and MR appearances of choroid plexus carcinomas in children less than two years of age. MR and CT imaging of this rare tumor revealed intensely enhancing mass lesions in an intraventricular location, the atrium of the lateral ventricle being the preferred site in children. The tumors were associated with hydrocephalus and(More)
We describe the proton ((1)H) magnetic resonance spectroscopic (MRS) imaging of central neurocytoma (CNC), a rare benign intraventricular neuronal tumor. Multivoxel MR Spectroscopy is a feasible and reproducible non-invasive tool for the specific diagnosis of CNC and to distinguish CNC from other intraventricular tumor types. The detection of glycine and(More)
