Abnormal prenatal sonographic findings in the posterior cranial fossa: a case of Joubert's syndrome. (2/258)

Joubert's syndrome is a well-documented but rare disorder characterized by a variable combination of central nervous system, respiratory, renal and eye anomalies. The most significant and constant neuropathological finding is partial or complete agenesis of the cerebellar vermis. The syndrome was first described by Joubert and colleagues as a familial agenesis of the cerebellar vermis and appears to be inherited as an autosomal recessive trait. A case of Joubert's syndrome is described in which second-trimester ultrasonography demonstrated abnormal findings in the fetal posterior fossa with associated renal abnormalities. However, postnatal sonography of the posterior fossa could not confirm the prenatal findings, and the diagnosis of Joubert's syndrome was only later established by computed tomography of the neonatal brain in the knowledge of the characteristic clinical picture.  (+info)

Posterior fossa epithelial cyst: case report and review of the literature. (3/258)

A 49-year old woman with progressive cranial nerve signs and hemiparesis was found at MR imaging and at surgery to have a cyst at the foramen magnum. Immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy showed an epithelial cyst of endodermal origin. MR findings were of an extraaxial mass, with short T1 and T2 times. Unless immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy are used in the final diagnosis of such cysts, all posterior fossa cysts lined by a single layer of epithelium should be described simply as epithelial cysts.  (+info)

Magnetic resonance imaging supplements ultrasonographic imaging of the posterior fossa, pharynx and neck in malformed fetuses. (4/258)

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to compare antepartum ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the diagnosis and exclusion of malformations of the fetal neck, pharynx, skull base and posterior fossa in late pregnancy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study involved 26 women and 27 fetuses with ultrasonographically or clinically suspected abnormalities of the fetal neck, pharynx or central nervous system (CNS). Findings obtained by ultrasound were compared with those obtained by MRI (1.5 T) in the last trimester. RESULTS: In cases with CNS malformation (n = 19), MRI provided additional information on the anatomy of the foramen magnum and posterior fossa in nine cases (47%). When antepartum ultrasonography indicated malformation of the soft tissues of the neck or pharynx (n = 8), MRI provided additional information on diagnosis or exclusion of the abnormality in six cases (75%). The imaging capacity of the anatomy of the naso-, oro- and hypopharynx, trachea, esophagus and cervical skin outlines was better with MRI. CONCLUSIONS: MRI proved to be a valuable supplementary method to ultrasound in obtaining accurate information from the fetal neck, pharynx and posterior fossa, particularly when acoustic shadowing by bony structures or adjacent malformation impaired the quality of the ultrasonographic examination.  (+info)

Midline cerebellar cystic schwannoma : a case report. (5/258)

An extremely unusual case of a cystic schwannoma in the region of the inferior vermis and posterior to the fourth ventricle in a fifteen year old boy is reported. The cystic tumour caused partial obstruction to the outflow of cerebrospinal fluid from fourth ventricle and resulted in development of supratentorial hydrocephalus. On investigations, the schwannoma simulated a Dandy-Walker cyst. The boy presented with symptoms of increased intracranial pressure. On surgery, the lesion was not arising from any cranial nerve, nor was it attached to brain parenchyma, blood vessel or to the dura. The possible histogenesis of the cystic schwannoma in a rare location is discussed.  (+info)

Avulsion fracture of the anterior half of the foramen magnum involving the bilateral occipital condyles and the inferior clivus--case report. (6/258)

A 38-year-old male presented with an avulsion fracture of the anterior half of the foramen magnum due to a traffic accident. He had palsy of the bilateral VI, left IX, and left X cranial nerves, weakness of his left upper extremity, and crossed sensory loss. He was treated conservatively and placed in a halo brace for 16 weeks. After immobilization, swallowing, hoarseness, and left upper extremity weakness improved. Hyperextension with a rotatory component probably resulted in strain in the tectorial membrane and alar ligaments, resulting in avulsion fracture at the sites of attachment, the bilateral occipital condyles and the inferior portion of the clivus. Conservative treatment is probably optimum even for this unusual and severe type of occipital condyle fracture.  (+info)

Neurodevelopmental outcome after antenatal diagnosis of posterior fossa abnormalities. (7/258)

Posterior fossa abnormalities are sonographically diagnosable in the fetus. Anomalies of this region include Dandy-Walker malformation, enlarged cisterna magna, and arachnoid cyst. Despite prenatal diagnosis, the uncertainties related to natural history and neurodevelopmental outcome in survivors make patient counseling difficult. The purposes of this study were to determine the accuracy of prenatal diagnosis of these lesions and elucidate long-term neurodevelopmental outcome in survivors in prenatally diagnosed posterior fossa abnormalities. Fifteen cases of posterior fossa abnormalities were reviewed. Antenatal diagnoses of Dandy-Walker malformation was made in 13 of these cases, arachnoid cyst in one case, and enlarged cisterna magna in one case. Hydrocephalus was present in 66% of patients. The sonographic diagnosis was concordant with the pathologic or neonatal radiologic diagnosis in 13 of 15 cases. Seven fetuses (47%) exhibited additional cranial or extracranial anomalies. A karyotypic abnormality (trisomy 18) was found in one of 15 cases of posterior fossa abnormalities. Neurodevelopmental delay was present in 80% of survivors with follow-up study to 4 years of age. Prenatal diagnosis of posterior fossa abnormalities is highly accurate, yet the differential diagnosis can be challenging. Cognitive and psychomotor developmental delays remain commonplace despite early diagnosis and treatment. The approach with families in cases of prenatal diagnosis of posterior fossa abnormalities should include a search for additional central nervous system and extra-central nervous system anomalies in the fetus and counseling of parents regarding potential adverse outcome for survivors.  (+info)

Tumour type and size are high risk factors for the syndrome of "cerebellar" mutism and subsequent dysarthria. (8/258)

OBJECTIVE: "Cerebellar mutis" and subsequent dysarthria (MSD) is a documented complication of posterior fossa surgery in children. In this prospective study the following risk factors for MSD were assessed: type, size and site of the tumour; hydrocephalus at presentation and after surgery, cerebellar incision site, postoperative infection, and cerebellar swelling. METHODS: In a consecutive series of 42 children with a cerebellar tumour, speech and neuroradiological studies (CT and MRI) were systematically analysed preoperatively and postoperatively. Speech was assessed using the Mayo Clinic lists and the severity of dysarthria using the Michigan rating scale. RESULTS: Twelve children (29%) developed MSD postoperatively. The type of tumour, midline localisation, and vermal incision were significant single independent risk factors. In addition, an interdependency of possible risk factors (tumour>5 cm, medulloblastoma) was found. CONCLUSION: MSD often occurs after paediatric cerebellar tumour removal and is most likely after removal of a medulloblastoma with a maximum lesion diameter>5 cm.  (+info)

Aneurysms that involve the internal carotid artery and posterior communicating artery junction and incorporate a fetal posterior cerebral artery are known as fetal posterior communicating artery aneurysms. We report the outcomes of four patients with fetal posterior communicating artery aneurysms who underwent treatment with the pipeline embolization device with or without adjunctive coil embolization. In our study, all four patients failed to achieve aneurysm occlusion at the last follow-up evaluation. Based on our results, we currently do not recommend the use of the flow diverter for the treatment of fetal posterior communicating artery aneurysms.

BACKGROUND: The specificity of imaging alone in diagnosing posterior fossa lesions is insufficient, hence the importance of biopsy for diagnostic, therapeutic and prognostic purposes. Concerning the operative technique, many studies have demonstrated the superior safety of stereotactic biopsy over craniotomy and superior accuracy of frame-based systems over frameless ones as far as the posterior fossa is concerned; however versatile, frame-based instruments bear some intrinsic limitations in the positioning of frame in lower lesions mainly in short neck and kyphotic patients. For all these reasons, a more proficient technical bioptic approach to the posterior fossa and lower brainstem is sometimes required ...

N1 - Copyright: Copyright 2018 Elsevier B.V., All rights reserved.. PY - 2005/7. Y1 - 2005/7. N2 - INTRODUCTION: To avoid any morbidity occuring after surgery for petroclival meningioma, we use the following treatment strategy: (1) the tumor should be left undetached in cases where there is no CSF space between the tumor and the surrounding structures to avoid a new deficit, (2) the residual volume should be reduced to less than 20 ml, small enough for radiosurgery. The result of our strategy presented. METHODS: During the past 10 years, we treated 13 patients with petroclival meningioma. The tumor volume ranged from 1.0 ml to 70 ml. 11 patients had neurological deficits preoperatively. 11 patients underwent an anterior petrosal approach while 2 patients underwent a far lateral approach according to the tumor ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Fatal hemorrhagic infarction of posterior fossa meningioma during cardiopulmonary bypass. AU - Sun, Hai. AU - Ross, Donald (Don). PY - 2012/2. Y1 - 2012/2. N2 - Few publications address cardiac surgery in the presence of meningioma. Individual complications include transient visual loss from a suprasellar meningioma, hemiparesis after mitral valve replacement with recovery after resection, and non-fatal hemorrhage into a posterior fossa meningioma. The largest report of 16 patients with known meningiomas over 11 years suggested a benign course, with no new neurologic symptoms and no required resection of a meningioma over an average follow-up of 31 months. In 2 cases we report a presumed posterior fossa meningioma led to fatal outcome after cardiac surgery performed on bypass. Possible causes and future considerations are discussed..

The largest of all the cranial nerves, the trigeminal nerve gives rise to a small motor root originating in the motor nucleus within the pons and medulla oblongata, and a larger sensory root which finds its origin in the anterior aspect of the pons. The nerve travels forward from the posterior cranial fossa to the petrous portion of the temporal bone within the middle cranial fossa. Here, the sensory root forms the trigeminal (semilunar or gasserian) ganglion situated within Meckels cavity on the anterior surface of the petrous portion of the temporal bone. The ganglia are paired, one innervating each side of the face. The sensory root of the trigeminal nerve gives rise to the ophthalmic division (V1), the maxillary division (V2), and the mandibular division (V3) from the ...
Increased sensitivity of MR imaging of the brain has led to increased use of MR imaging to detect and assess malformations of the brain. Congenital malformations of the brain, including midline cerebral anomalies such as holoprosencephaly and posterior fossa anomalies, often are associated with venous anomalies (4-7). The venous system has been imaged with conventional angiography, but MR venography has increasingly been used to study the cerebral venous system. MR venography is noninvasive, does not involve ionizing radiation, and can be performed at the same time as MR imaging in comparatively short acquisition times. An understanding of the normal anatomy of the venous structure and its variations and the development of the venous system is crucial before studying the abnormal venous structure in malformations of the brain. Considerable data are available from conventional angiography studies regarding the intracranial veins and sinuses, but data regarding the capacity of MR venography in ...
Treat hydrocephalus:The first line of treatment is to treat hydrocephalus, as this is usually the cause of brainstem signs (1, 59). A smaller number of children will actually need posterior fossa decompression. The older literature reports a 15% mortality rate and a 30% rate of permanent neurological disability in infants who require posterior fossa decompression (32). Surgeons anecdotal (unpublished) data seem to suggest that these rates have diminished dramatically since paying more attention to the CSF shunts, regardless of ventricular size. ...
A persistent PTA is an uncommon vessel with a reported incidence of 0.03-2.2% in the literature10). Cases of PTA-induced TN are even rarer. During embryonic intracranial vascular development, four main temporal anastomoses arise between the carotid and vertebral-basilar systems10). The trigeminal artery is the largest of the fetal carotid-basilar anastomotic arteries, and it persists for the longest embryonic period6,7). The artery usually involutes after the development of the posterior communicating artery10). The exact causes of the persistence of this primitive vessel into adulthood are not completely clear1). The PTA of adulthood courses through the cavernous sinus and emanates from the posterior wall of the cavernous sinus, following either a para- or intrasellar course1,6,7). The PTA reaches the posterior cranial fossa in two ways : by 1) penetrating the sella turcica, running in its own groove, and perforating the dura mater near the clivus in about half of cases; or by 2) running ...

Dermoid cysts are benign and slow growing, and are usually located near midline within the posterior cranial fossa, parasellar, and sub frontal areas. Symptoms depend on the size, location, and mass effect on adjacent structures. Patients may present with visual disturbances, seizures, diabetes insipidus, or headache. Intraventricular dermoids are most commonly in the fourth ventricle and rarely cause hydrocephalus. Spontaneous rupture, as in this case, can incite a chemical meningitis, resulting in recurrent headaches or seizures. Although rare, the resultant meningeal inflammation can cause vasospasm, and even stroke and death. Traumatic rupture has also been reported. In addition to intracranial involvement, dermoid cysts may also be seen in the scalp, skull, orbit, spine, nasal/oral cavity, and neck. Ovarian (abdominal) dermoids are actually well-differentiated and organized teratomas ...
On magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ELSTs are generally seen as a heterogeneous mass with hyperintense foci in T1 and T2 sequences as a result of blood products, proteinaceous cysts or cholesterol clefts (Fig. 1-3) [2]. In large tumours - more than 2 cm - signal voids can be caused by vessels and calcifications, whereas these are less likely present in small tumours [4]. Contrast enhancement proves the hypervascular nature of the tumour. Inhomogeneity may be due to the enhancement of the solid portion, whereas calcific density within the lesion can be a result of intratumoural calcification or residual destroyed bone. ELSTs have a high predisposition to extend to the middle ear, cerebellopontine angle, and posterior cranial fossa [2 ...

In the Blakes 7 episode Gambit, Blake visits Freedom City while looking for Docholli, who may know the location of the Federations main computer system - Star One. While Blake, Jenna and Cally hunt for Docholli, Avon and Vila go gambling with the aid of Orac and make a profit of ten million credits. They get back to the ship just in time to conceal the money from Bake when he teleports back to Liberator.. With a fluid, long-armed grab, Avon snatched up the box of credits. Quick, Vila. Set me down again.. Vilas jaw dropped. What? But he was already responding to Avons urgency by squeezing round to his position behind the teleport console.. Blakes suspicious already; hell figure it out soon enough. I want our money off the ship and in a nice, safe bank.. Finance for a bolt-hole?. Avon allowed a smile to flicker across his face. Precisely. Orac, set co-ordinates for the Grammerian Bank.. Lights flickered on the console as Orac performed its usual electronic wizardry. Avon could ...

It was then and is now, emblematic of who he was, what he had become and who he will always be...for once a Marine, ALWAYS a Marine! Upon graduating from Boot Camp on January 16, 2009, with the rank of Private First Class, Blake moved on to the SOI (School of Infantry) at Camp Geiger, NC. While there he was recognized for his use of novel strategies and tactics in leading his assault team in overtaking a position held by members of the instructor cadre. The surprised and dumbfounded instructors upon being overrun by Blakes team, asked where he had learned those techniques. Blakes reply was that he had devised them during his days of playing paintball and Navy Squeals (a takeoff on the movie Navy SEALS) with his cousins and friends. So impressed with his methods were the staff, that Blakes techniques are now taught to other Marines as part of the curriculum there. His demonstrated ...

And they had left, barely escaping with a barrage of plasma bolts damaging several of their energy banks. Dayna had called it luck, Tarrant claimed it was his skill. In any words, it had been too close.. But something kept nagging at Avon, telling him that he had to go back, he had to be certain that Vila was dead. It was stupid, of course. Sentiment could kill a man if he allowed it to, but Avon could not shake the feeling. So they had returned two months later and found Vila alive but not the same.. Who could be, after the carnage Avon and Cally saw? The wooded area where Rubins village had been was now nothing more than a blackened, twisted hole some three-quarters of a mile wide. How Vila had escaped from that defied Avons power of reason, but escape he had, though not unscathed. The burns testified to that.. Cally was scouting the area looking for any signs of life when Avon found the footprint. The mark was not left by a Federation boot, but the thought did not reassure Avon as he ...
As Idek, Blake plays a learned scholar who was Rabbi Schmidts best pupil ever. His performance is quiet, assured and sensitive, and ones eyes are riveted on this striking man as he is shorn of his hair and earthly possessions. Blakes dark and beautiful eyes are haunting in this memorable role. Who would have thought that the actor who played Edmund Bertram so capably in 2007s Mansfield Park would be so utterly convincing as a 1940s rabinical scholar? Blakes assessment of Idek is stark: As one of the youngest and most idealistic characters, I think hes unusual in that, certainly at first, he represents a hope and genuine belief that somehow all will be well. Throughout the course of the day, however, as his whole identity is assaulted by losing his clothes, his possessions and his hair, he completely crumbles under the strain. Through him we trace the idealists descent into absolute despair ...
