Spinal epidermoid cyst, congenital or acquired, is mainly congenital associated with spinal dysraphism, rarely in isolation. Intramedullary epidermoid cysts (IECs) are rare with less than 60 cases reported so far; isolated variety (i.e., without spinal dysraphism) is still rarer. Complete microsurgical excision is the dictum of surgical treatment. A(More)
BACKGROUND Spinal cord compression can be due to various causes but spinal intramedullary tuberculoma is a rare cause. We report a case that had an intramedullary spinal cord tuberculomas in which the diagnosis was made histologically, without evidence of symptoms of systemic tuberculosis. This lesion, located in the thoracic region, mimicked as an(More)
BACKGROUND Isolated orbital neurofibroma unassociated with systemic neurofibromatosis is relatively rare and may be difficult to clinically differentiate from other orbital tumors. Sensory branches of the trigeminal nerve-namely lacrimal, nasociliary, and frontal-are the most common nerves of origin for intraorbital neurofibroma, but we discovered a(More)
Background: Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is a neurosurgical entity which mimics many neuropsychiatric conditions. "Single burr-hole with saline lavage" technique is an adequate and safe treatment for this entity; putting two holes in this pathology mayn't always be necessary. Aim: The aim of this study is to find out the spectrum of incidence, risk(More)
BACKGROUND Though, traumatic brain injury (TBI) has been documented as the single most common cause of morbidity and mortality in infancy and childhood, the exact incidence is unavailable in India. Moreover, modes of injury, mechanisms of damage, and management differ significantly from that of an adult. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES To analyze the epidemiological(More)
Spinal tuberculosis is the commonest form of skeletal tuberculosis accounting for about 50% of osteo articular tuberculosis [1]. Spinal tuberculosis is a common infectious disease found in developing countries like India. Often patients present with Pott’s disease related paraplegia attended by "destruction of vertebral body, lamina, pedicle and spinous(More)
BACKGROUND Cerebral aspergillosis, often encountered in immunocompromised patients, is almost always fatal despite radical surgical and medical management and frequently is a finding at autopsy. Attempts at fungal isolation often are unsuccessful, and a high index of radiologic suspicion is necessary. CASE DESCRIPTION A premature, 5-month-old female(More)
BACKGROUND Subacute subdural hematoma (SASDH) is an entity which is yet to capture the popular imagination among the neurosurgeons. Its management is often equated clinically to that of the chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH). However, their neurological deterioration is usually rapid, which seems to align them with acute subdural hematoma (ASDH). We proceed(More)
