We observed a bilateral accommodative paresis associated with a spontaneous parieto-occipital hematoma in a 37-year old patient. There was no clinical or computerized tomography (CT) evidence of transtentorial herniation or upper brainstem pathology. With resolution of the hematoma, accommodation returned to normal.
A case of cervico-occipital teratoma in a neonate is presented. This is the third reported case of teratoma in this unusual location and the first excised during the neonatal period. The radiographic and histological examination, treatment, and follow-up findings in this case are presented, along with a review of the literature.
A case of giant left-sided frontal cerebral Echinococcus cyst causing headaches, galactorrhea--amenorrhea, secondary sterility, and gain in weight in an adult female patient is reported. The operative removal of this huge cyst led to complete neurological and endocrinologic recovery.
This preliminary report summarizes our results with laser surgery in patients with basal meningiomas (8 basilar and 1 intraventricular extending also into the third ventricle). Illustrative preoperative and postoperative CT scans are included. The advantages and limitations of this surgical technique are discussed briefly.
A hematoma in the left iliacus muscle induced by anticoagulant therapy and causing a femoral neuropathy was demonstrated by CT scan. The scan returned to normal after the surgical evacuation of the hematoma. Other possible uses of the CT scan to demonstrate neurological lesions in this region are discussed.
