OBJECT Intramedullary spinal cord metastasis (ISCM) is a rare but devastating complication of cancer. Due to both widespread MRI availability and longer survival of cancer patients, the probability of discovering an ISCM during the course of the disease has increased and raised issues regarding the management of these patients, and particularly the place of(More)
Supradiaphragmatic adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) secreting pituitary adenomas are exceptionally encountered (14 cases previously described) and raise issues concerning their nosology and management. If surgery is the treatment of choice, the nature of surgical approach (craniotomy, transsphenoidal approach) remains controversial. To illustrate this(More)
OBJECTIVES To report a case of bilateral subacute subdural hematoma following implantation of intrathecal drug delivery device. MATERIALS AND METHODS We present here the case of a 41-year-old woman with multiple sclerosis and intractable spasticity who developed a bilateral subacute subdural hematoma after the placement of an intrathecal catheter(More)
Diffusion tensor imaging and tractography allow studying white matter fiber bundles in the human brain in vivo. Electrophysiological studies and postmortem dissections permit improving our knowledge about the short association fibers connecting the pre- and postcentral gyri. The aim of this study was first to extract and analyze the features of these short(More)
Globicatella sanguinis is a rare cause of acute meningitis. We demonstrated human carriage of Globicatella by identifying cefotaxime-resistant strains in groin and rectal specimens 9 months after invasive infection. The pathogenic strain isolated from the cerebrospinal fluid and the carriage strains were accurately identified by sodA gene sequence analysis.
Animal studies have shown that Listeria monocytogenes can probably access the brain through a peripheral intraneural route, and it has been suggested that a similar process may occur in humans. However, thus far, its spreading through the central nervous system (CNS) has not been completely elucidated. The authors present a case of multiple L. monocytogenes(More)
The authors report on 2 cases of delayed compression of the cervical spinal cord by dense scar tissue forming around epidural electrodes implanted for spinal cord stimulation (SCS). This complication has not been previously reported. Myelopathy developed in 2 patients 5 and 16 years after the surgical placement of a cervical epidural electrode. Prior to(More)
Most intra-cranial arachnoid cysts are quiescent and remain asymptomatic throughout life. Within the natural course of arachnoid cyst evolution, spontaneous resolution has been known to occur rarely, but its frequency is probably underestimated due to lack of systematic detection and long-term observation. We illustrate the spontaneous regression of(More)
Because of the motor function of the precentral area, the connections of the primary motor cortex by white matter fiber bundles have been widely studied in diffusion tensor imaging (DTI). Nevertheless, the connections within the primary motor cortex have yet to be explored. We have studied the connectivity between the different regions of the precentral(More)
Recent studies highlight the contribution of antiplatelet therapy to clinical severity and increased mortality of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) but results are discrepant. The aim of this report was to evaluate the association between antiplatelet drug use preceding the onset of ICH and the mortality, assessed at regular intervals, among patients with(More)
