A clinical and pathological study of 124 surgically treated patients with intracranial meningiomas was carried out to evaluate factors influencing recurrence. The patients ranged in age from 8 years to 75 years. Thirty-five (28.2%) were males and 89 (71.8%) were females. Recurrences occurred in 18 patients, once in eleven, twice in six, four times in one.(More)
A case of Down's syndrome accompanied by endodermal sinus tumor of the left basal ganglia is reported. She was referred to us because of right hemiparesis. A CT scan showed a calcified mass in the left basal ganglia, which was well enhanced on contrast CT. Emergency removal of the tumor was performed because of its rapid growth, intratumoral hemorrhage, and(More)
We compared the imaging capability of magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) with that of conventional coronary angiography in a patient with coronary-pulmonary fistulae. Using the latter procedure, it is difficult to measure abnormal tortuous blood vessels in one section. However, the course of blood vessels could be evaluated quite well by rearranging(More)
We report a 23-year-old woman who developed ascites 3 years after ventriculoperitoneal shunting. Revision of the shunt to ventricular drainage followed by ventriculo-atrial shunting was required for resolution of ascites. In our patient the pathophysiology of this rare shunt complication most likely involved impaired absorption of fluid within the(More)
The changes in the signals for brain metabolites in the left cerebellum of a 14-year-old boy with acute hemicerebellitis were monitored using proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS). From the onset of disease treatment to long-term follow-up, MRS data were serially acquired from the left and right cerebella, basal ganglia (BG), and centrum semiovale(More)
Holoprosencephaly, as described by DeMyer, is a cerebral malformation in which the embryonic prosencephalon fails to divide into cerebral hemispheres. According to the degree of division in the prosencephalon, he classified holoprosencephaly into three types; alobar, semilobar and lobar type. We have experienced a case of holoprosencephaly with parietal(More)
A stroke-like episode is a core symptom in mitochondrial myopathy, encephalopathy, lactic acidosis and stroke-like episodes (MELAS). Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H-MRS) is useful in the diagnosis of mitochondrial diseases. We report an 8-year-old girl with MELAS, presenting with a seizure and blindness. 1H-MRS showed a strikingly elevated(More)
Complications following the operations for chronic subdural hematoma include recurrence of the hematoma, infection, seizure, and failure of the brain to expand due to cerebro-cranial disproportion. This report presents cases with intracerebral hemorrhage which is relatively rare complication. In case 1, a 35-year-old man developed status epilepticus(More)
A 34-year-old woman had a generalized convulsion of sudden onset on April 30, 1985. The next day, she suffered a reattack of generalized convulsion. She was admitted to Kokura Memorial Hospital on May 13, 1985, and was found to have intracerebral hemorrhage on CT-scan then, underwent surgical procedure. Based on cerebral angiographic findings and(More)
