A 77-year-old man presented with a metastatic brain tumor 15 years after nephrectomy for a renal cell carcinoma. Neurological examination showed recent memory disturbance and slight right hemiparesis. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a round well-demarcated mass extending from the left thalamus to the left trigone of the lateral ventricle. Preoperative(More)
The objectives of this study were to elucidate the normal anatomy of middle cerebral artery (MCA) bifurcations and to analyze the differences in patients with MCA aneurysms. In the present study, 62 patients underwent three-dimensional magnetic resonance angiography, and no intracranial lesions were noted. The widths of M1 and the superior and inferior M2(More)
Patients who have undergone pterional craniotomy sometimes complain about postoperative cosmetic impairment in the frontotemporal area. This problem occurs as a result of inappropriate repair or no repair of the pterional key hole. The authors have developed an intraoperative hand-made three-dimensional titanium plate, and as a result of using this plate(More)
Familial cerebral cavernous malformations (FCCM) are autosomal-dominant vascular malformations. At present, 3 cerebral cavernous malformation genes (KRIT1/CCM1, MGC4607/CCM2, and PDCD10/CCM3) have been identified. Few genetic analyses of Japanese FCCM have been reported. A Japanese pedigree of 4 patients with FCCM has been reported that includes the genetic(More)
Intracranial aneurysms usually occur at arterial bifurcations. However, in middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysms, we often find that the aneurysmal neck does not necessarily exist just on the arterial bifurcation. In this study, we have evaluated the relation among aneurysmal neck, parent artery, and daughter arteries in middle cerebral artery aneurysms,(More)
A case with cerebral juvenile pilocytic astrocytoma (JPA) was reported. The patient was 33-month-old boy, who developed headache and loss of activity on December, 1994. Although he was indicated macrocephaly at the age of just 1 year, CT scan showed no abnormality at that time. On admission, MRI revealed multiple large cysts with an enhanced mural nodule in(More)
BACKGROUND As an extremely rare subtype of sarcoidosis that develops exclusively in the nervous system, isolated neurosarcoidosis is difficult to diagnose. In addition, its exact clinical features are not known. CASE DESCRIPTION A 61-year-old man presented with right ear hearing loss, diplopia, and fever. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance(More)
Chronic subdural hematomas (CSDHs) occur often in elderly persons and can occur with mild head trauma. With burr-hole irrigation as standard treatment, symptoms usually improve and can be cured, and outcomes are good, but postoperative recurrences are a common problem. This study investigated the effectiveness and recurrence rates when using artificial(More)
BACKGROUND Primary central nervous system malignant lymphoma (PCNSL) has been regarded as a rare neoplasm. Recently, however, its incidence has been rapidly increasing. Despite active clinical trials, its clinical and biologic features remain unknown and there has been no effective treatment or prognostic factor. The current study attempted to elucidate(More)
