A case of familial polymorphous oligodendroglioma, occurring in a brother and sister, is presented. Polymorphous oligodendrogliomas have a characteristic histopathology consisting of scattered multinucleated giant cells against a typical oligodendroglial background. The oligodendroglial character of the tumors was underlined by positive immunostaining for(More)
OBJECT The success rates and side effects of Gamma Knife surgery (GKS) in patients with trigeminal neuralgia (TN) are not fully clear. A comparison of data across previous reports is hampered by differences in treatment protocols, lengths of follow-up, and outcome criteria. The purpose of this paper is to contribute to knowledge of the efficacy of GKS in TN(More)
Lhermitte-Duclos disease (LDD), also known as dysplastic gangliocytoma, is a rare cerebellar lesion. It has long been regarded as avascular. We report two patients with surgically proven LDD in whom contrast enhancement was observed on MRI. Neuropathological examination revealed proliferation of veins. We suggest that peripheral enhancement of LDD probably(More)
INTRODUCTION Muscles can adapt their fiber properties to accommodate to new conditions. We investigated the extent to which a decrease in muscle activation can cause an adaptation of fiber properties in synergistic and antagonistic jaw muscles. METHODS Three months after the injection of botulinum toxin type A in one masseter (anterior or posterior)(More)
Three infants, two boys aged 10 months and one girl aged 5 months, developed drowsiness and emesis within a few hours of a fall (after which they had not lost consciousness). Radiological examination revealed an epidural haematoma which was treated with emergency decompression. The children subsequently made a good recovery. An epidural haematoma is a(More)
BACKGROUND The dural tail (DT) has been described as a common feature in meningiomas. There is a great variation of tumor invasion and extent of tumor cells in the DT. Therefore, the necessity to include the whole DT in Gamma Knife radiosurgery is not clear, since inclusion increases the target volume and therefore increases the risk of complications. In(More)
