Susac syndrome is a microangiopathy of unknown origin affecting the brain, retina and inner ear. This rare entity is often misdiagnosed as a demyelinating condition such as multiple sclerosis or acute disseminated encephalomyelitis. A high index of suspicion must be present as the majority of patients do not have the complete clinical triad at the time of(More)
Persistent trigeminal artery (PTA) is the most frequent type of persistent primitive carotid-basilar artery anastomoses. Persistent trigeminal artery is usually associated with small or absent posterior communicating artery (Pcom). It may also be associated with hypoplastic vertebral and basilar arteries. Patients may present with symptoms related to(More)
Global hypoxia in adult brain usually manifests as ischemic lesions in watershed territories. Acute profound hypoxia involves the cortex especially the perirolandic area, white matter and deep grey matter. Perirolandic sparing in adult global hypoxia is not described in literature. Few cases of perirolandic sparing are described in conditions like anoxia in(More)
Esophageal carcinoma arising within an epiphrenic diverticulum is rare. We describe a case of a carcinoma in a long-standing epiphrenic diverticulum in a 62-year-old patient. Fluorine-18-2-Fluoro-2-Deoxy-D-Glucose Positron Emission Tomography and Computed Tomography, and endoscopic ultrasound revealed a hypermetabolic mass within the diverticulum. A(More)
Congenital X-linked deafness with stapes gusher is a rare, but well-known clinical entity with characteristic radiological features. Recognition of these findings is important as it changes the treatment course and precludes stapedectomy, which if done can lead to stapes gusher in these patients. We present the case of a nine-month-old male infant with(More)
Perivascular spaces can occasionally appear mass-like (tumefactive or giant perivascular space), and can be associated with clinical symptoms. Spontaneous regression of a tumefactive perivascular space is a very rare phenomenon with only two reported cases in the English medical literature. Spontaneous regression of a tumefactive perivascular space along(More)
