A case of ganglioglioma of the optic pathway associated with congenital exophthalmos and strabismus is presented. Since the tumor extended from the right optic nerve to the right geniculate body, it was diagnosed as an optic glioma before operation. However, optic nerve biopsy showed that the lesion was a ganglioglioma. Although a literature review yielded(More)
The role of multi-detector-row computed tomographic angiography (MDCTA) in spinal vascular malformations has not yet been determined. We present a report on a short series of spinal arteriovenous fistulae (AVF) evaluated by MDCTA. With 4-row and 16-row MDCTA, three cases of spinal dural AVF and one case of perimedullary AVF were examined. Each case was also(More)
BACKGROUND Preoperative differential diagnosis of interhemispheric cysts is sometimes difficult. CASE DESCRIPTION We recently experienced a case of symptomatic interhemispheric arachnoid cyst in a 62-year-old woman. We reviewed interhemispheric arachnoid cysts in the elderly and the management of symptomatic interhemispheric arachnoid cysts in elderly(More)
The identification of intermediate filaments within immature cells is valuable as a means to investigate neuronal and glial differentiation. The purpose of this study is to investigate the time of appearance of neuron and glia within rat embryo by identifying cell-specific intermediate filaments. Pregnant rat were daily sacrificed from day 9-20 of(More)
We report a 48-year-old woman with primary diffuse leptomeningeal gliomatosis (PDLG) histologically diagnosed as gliosarcoma. She was admitted complaining of headache, numbness of the right arm, double vision, and visual field defects. Computerized tomography (CT) scans showed ventricular dilatation consistent with communicating hydrocephalus. Magnetic(More)
BACKGROUND De novo aneurysms in the posterior circulation are very rare. The authors describe a first case of ruptured de novo posterior cerebral artery (PCA) aneurysm in the P3 portion. CASE DESCRIPTION A 52-year-old woman with ruptured de novo P3 aneurysm was treated by early endovascular obliteration using Guglielmi Detachable Coils (GDC). To prevent(More)
BACKGROUND To develop an effective therapeutic strategy for patients with diencephalic pilocytic astrocytomas (PA), we must understand the long-term effects and problems of conventional treatments. METHODS We performed a retrospective follow-up of four infants with PA in the diencephalon. CONCLUSION The initial treatment consisted of partial tumor(More)
Two cases of traumatic intracerebral pneumocephalus, a rare complication of head trauma, are presented. Case 1: A 14-year-old boy had a strong concussion in his forehead due to a motorbike accident. Slightly obtunded on admission showing GCS 10, he became conscious in several days. Head CT performed after 17 days showed a round air image in the right(More)
The morphological changes of radial glial cells in developing human spinal cord have been studied immunohistologically. The specimens extracted from developing human spinal cords, gestational age of 15 weeks, 30 weeks and 35 weeks, were prepared with cryostat for the investigation of anti vimentin mouse monoclonal antibody and of GFAP rabbit serum. We have(More)
