Granular cell tumor (GCT) is a rare neoplasm occurring in the sellar and suprasellar spaces. It is a primary tumor of the neurohypophysis, presumably arising from the pituicytes, a distinctive glial cell of the neurohypophysis. GCTs in most reported cases show biologically benign behavior with slow growth. Only 70 cases of hypophyseal GCTs have been(More)
The stage of unstable dysfunction, also defined as “active discopathy” by Nguyen in 2015 and configuring the first phase of the degenerative cascade described by Kirkaldy-Willis, has specific pathoanatomical and clinical characteristics (low back pain) in the interested vertebral segment, without the presence of spondylolisthesis in flexion–extension(More)
Glioblastoma multiforme is a malignant adult intracranial umor; it accounts for 10–15% of all intracranial tumors, with a eported male preponderance of 6:4 [1]. The location of glioblasoma in the brain is principally supratentorial [1]. Brain metastases, bscesses, primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) and rimary CNS lymphomas should be considered(More)
The only environmental factor undoubtedly linked to an increased risk of brain tumors (including gliomas) is therapeutic X-rays. We aim to conduct a detailed study of radiation-induced low-grade gliomas, in order to better understand the pathogenesis of such gliomas. Furthermore, we want do prove whether or not there are significant differences, according(More)
