We report two patients with Marchiafava-Bignami disease (MBD). A 38-year-old male with chronic alcohol abuse developed acute onset cerebellar ataxia and altered sensorium. He was diagnosed to have acute form (Type II) of MBD. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed extensive lesions involving the corpus callosum in its entire extent and also bilateral(More)
BACKGROUND Distal myopathy with rimmed vacuoles (DMRV) is an autosomal recessive (AR) myopathy characterized clinically by the preferential involvement of the tibialis anterior and has been reported predominantly in the Japanese population. MATERIALS AND METHODS A case series of DMRV patients seen over a period of 3 years at a tertiary national referral(More)
BACKGROUND The technique of intralaminar screw placement for achieving axis (C2) fixation has been recently described. The purpose of the study was to provide the morphometric and radiological measurements in Indian population and to determine the feasibility of safe translaminar screw placement in this population. To the best of our knowledge there is no(More)
A 13-year-old boy presented with an intracerebral haematoma secondary to a large corpus callosal arteriovenous malformation (AVM) with an associated persistent trigeminal artery, and was treated with Gamma-Knife Radiosurgery for the AVM. This report discusses the embryological basis, radiological features and various classifications of this rare vascular(More)
The purpose of the study was to: (1) introduce a new CT-based parameter: free facet area and provide its normative data; (2) standardize the method of measuring isthmus width and height of the axis vertebra; (3) propose a new grading system to predict the difficulty in inserting transarticular and C2 pedicle screws. Spiral CT scans of 47 adult dry axis(More)
INTRODUCTION Molecular heterogeneity in glioblastoma (GBM) is a novel area of research recently. Because tumor infiltrating front in GBM is often left behind following tumor decompression, knowledge of its genetic makeup can improve the rationale of potential molecular targets. METHODS MRI localized biopsies of the tumor core and peritumoral brain zone(More)
