BACKGROUND Intramedullary spinal cord metastases (IMSCM) are typically drop lesions from intracranial metastases and are a rare manifestation of systemic malignancy (8.5% of central nervous system metastases). They arise from primaries such as the lungs, breast, kidney, melanoma, or lymphoma. On the other hand, they arise very rarely from papillary thyroid(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)
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)
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 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 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)
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)
