Cicatricial fibromatosis mimics metastatic medulloblastoma. (1/535)Cicatricial fibromatoses usually occur in the anterior abdominal wall or in the extremities, but rarely in the scalp or the soft tissues of the neck. We report a case of desmoid fibromatosis that developed in a 15-year-old boy 8 months after surgery for cerebellar medulloblastoma. (+info)
A new technique of surface anatomy MR scanning of the brain: its application to scalp incision planning. (2/535)BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Surface anatomy scanning (SAS) is an established technique for demonstrating the brain's surface. We describe our experience in applying SAS with superposition of MR venograms to preoperative scalp incision planning. METHODS: In 16 patients, scalp incision planning was done by placing a water-filled plastic tube at the intended incision site when we performed SAS using half-Fourier single-shot fast spin-echo sequences. Two-dimensional phase-contrast MR angiograms were obtained to demonstrate the cortical veins and then superimposed upon the SAS images. The added images were compared with surgical findings using a four-point grading scale (0 to 3, poor to excellent). RESULTS: In each case, neurosurgeons could easily reach the lesion. Surgical findings correlated well with MR angiogram-added SAS images, with an average score of 2.56. CONCLUSION: Our simple technique is a useful means of preoperatively determining brain surface anatomy and can be used to plan a scalp incision site. (+info)
Focal ictal direct current shifts in human epilepsy as studied by subdural and scalp recording. (3/535)In order to clarify further the characteristics of ictal direct current (DC) shifts in human epilepsy, we investigated them by subdural and scalp recording in six and three patients, respectively, both having mainly neocortical lobe epilepsy (five with frontal lobe epilepsy, two with parietal lobe epilepsy and two with temporal lobe epilepsy). By using subdural electrodes made of platinum, ictal DC shifts were observed in 85% of all the recorded seizures (89 seizures) among the six patients, and they were localized to just one or two electrodes at which the conventional initial ictal EEG change was also observed. They were closely accompanied by the electrodecremental pattern in all patients except for one in whom 1 Hz rhythmic activity was superimposed on clear negative slow shifts. Seizure control after resection of the cortex, including the area showing DC shifts, was favourable irrespective of histological diagnosis. Scalp-recorded ictal slow shifts were observed in 23% of all the recorded seizures (60 seizures) among the three patients. They were, like the subdurally recorded ones, mainly surface-negative in polarity, closely related to the electrodecremental pattern and consistent in their location. It seems that scalp-recorded DC shifts were detected particularly when seizures were clinically intense, while no slow shifts were observed in small seizures. It is concluded that at least subdurally recorded ictal slow shifts are clinically useful before epilepsy surgery to delineate more specifically an epileptogenic area as well as to further confirm the conventional initial ictal EEG change, and that scalp-recorded ictal slow shifts also have high specificity although their low sensitivity is to be taken into account.

Generation of scalp discharges in temporal lobe epilepsy as suggested by intraoperative electrocorticographic recordings. (4/535)OBJECTIVES: To study the variability, topography, polarity, duration, and incidence of interictal epileptiform discharges (EDs) in the scalp EEG and electrocorticogram (ECoG) from 16 patients with temporal lobe epilepsy who underwent surgical treatment. METHODS: Preoperative scalp EEGs during quinalbarbitone induced sleep were compared with preresection ECoGs obtained under general anaesthesia. The analysis was based on the initial ECoG record obtained before activation by intravenous thiopentone, and the EEG during stages I and II of sleep. RESULTS: On the scalp, 15 patients had a single discharge pattern, spikes were predominantly negative, EDs were of largest amplitude at the anterior temporal electrode in 13 patients and mean discharge incidence was 4.0 (SD 4.2) discharges/min. In ECoG recordings, nine patients had two independent ECoG patterns, the polarity of spikes was negative, positive-negative, or positive, the site of maximal amplitude varied greatly between subjects, discharge incidence was 7.3 (SD 3.9) discharges/min. There was no relation between the topography of the largest spikes on the scalp and in the ECoG. In 14 patients, scalp spikes showed statistically significant longer duration on the scalp than in the ECoG. In seven patients who had frequent widespread ECoG discharges, averaging spikes across ECoG channels generated spiky patterns of duration similar to that of scalp spikes. CONCLUSION: It seems that, in temporal lobe epilepsy, scalp discharges originate from widespread ECoG discharges and tend to produce a stereotyped pattern on the scalp with largest amplitudes at the anterior temporal electrodes. This is probably due to local anatomical peculiarities in the brain coverings, such as skull discontinuities, rather than to the location of neuronal generators within the temporal lobe. Due to spatiotemporal averaging, widespread cortical discharges which become asynchronous during propagation appear with increased duration and blunted waveform in the EEG, whereas sharply localised phenomena such as positive focal spikes are not recorded from the scalp.

Outcomes of irradiated polyglactin 910 Vicryl Rapide fast-absorbing suture in oral and scalp wounds. (5/535)BACKGROUND: This study evaluated the outcome of wounds closed with irradiated polyglactin 910 (IRPG) Vicryl Rapide (Ethicon, Somerville, N.J.). METHOD: Seventy-one patients with 80 oral wounds and 42 patients with 42 scalp wounds closed with IRPG were evaluated on the day of surgery, then one, seven, 14, 28 and 90 days following surgery. The incidence of inflammation, suppuration and hypertrophic scarring was recorded, along with the timing of spontaneous suture disappearance. This suture material was compared with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) sutures used in dental implant patients, traditional polyglycolic acid (PGLA) sutures used in osteotomy patients and skin staples used in patients with scalp wounds. RESULTS: In the group with intraoral wounds, there were two cases of suppuration with no inflammatory reactions or hypertrophic scarring when IRPG sutures were used, compared to three cases of suppuration with the traditional PGLA sutures. In the group with scalp wounds, there was no suppuration or hypertrophic scarring with IRPG sutures and one inflammatory reaction with skin staples. IRPG sutures never required removal, while all staples, PGLA and PTFE sutures eventually required separate removal. CONCLUSION: Irradiated polyglactin 910 Vicryl Rapide is a useful suture material with both intra- and extraoral applications in the pediatric and adult populations. (+info)
Interhemispheric asymmetries in the perception of unimanual and bimanual cutaneous stimuli. A study using transcranial magnetic stimulation. (6/535)Previous studies have shown that transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) of the sensorimotor cortex can induce a suppression of cutaneous perception from the fingers of the contralateral hand. In this work, 17 normal subjects were submitted to focal TMS of frontal and parietal scalp sites of each hemisphere. TMS was delivered at two interstimulus intervals (20 and 40 ms) following a cutaneous electrical stimulation of the first, third and fifth digits of either hand or both hands near the subjective threshold of perception. The aim of our study was to investigate whether TMS could detect an asymmetrical hemispheric specialization in the sensory perception of unimanual and bimanual, ipsilateral and contralateral sensory stimuli. At each interpulse interval, the right parietal cortex was significantly more sensitive to TMS interference with stimulus detection for both contralateral and ipsilateral stimuli compared with the left parietal cortex. These effects were mainly evident during bimanual discrimination tasks. Our results are indicative of an interhemispheric difference in the detection of cutaneous sensation, showing right hemispheric prevalence in the perception of contralateral as well as of ipsilateral stimuli. They provide neurophysiological support in normal humans to the clinical evidence which indicates that right hemisphere lesions can indeed produce deficits in the perception of ipsilateral sensory stimuli.

Left frontal transcranial magnetic stimulation reduces contralesional extinction in patients with unilateral right brain damage. (7/535)It has been demonstrated previously that transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) of the sensorimotor cortex can induce transient suppression of the perception of cutaneous near-threshold stimuli from fingers of the contralateral hand in normal individuals. One explanation accounting for deficits in the exploration of contralateral space following a unilateral hemispheric lesion refers to a loss of the normal interhemispheric balance, with a resultant hyperactivation of the unaffected hemisphere due to the release of reciprocal inhibition by the affected one. In order to verify this hypothesis, we investigated the effects of a TMS-induced transient dysfunction of the normal hemisphere upon contralateral tactile extinctions in two groups: (i) 14 right brain-damaged patients and (ii) 14 left brain-damaged control patients. Single-pulse TMS was delivered to frontal and parietal scalp sites of the unaffected hemisphere after an interval of 40 ms from an electrical unimanual or bimanual digit stimulation. In right brain-damaged patients, left frontal TMS significantly reduced the rate of contralateral extinctions compared with controls. After left parietal TMS, the number of extinctions was comparable to the baseline. This pattern of increased sensitivity to cutaneous stimulation ipsilateral to TMS was not observed in left brain-damaged control patients. In this group, right hemisphere TMS did not significantly alter the recognition of bimanual stimuli delivered to the space contralateral to the lesion. The suggestion is made that extinctions produced by right brain damage may be dependent on a breakdown in the balance of hemispheric rivalry in directing spatial attention to contralateral hemispace, so that the unaffected hemisphere generates an unopposed orienting response to the side of the lesion. The mechanisms whereby the left frontal TMS transiently ameliorates these deficits may involve stimulus-induced removal of a left frontal-right parietal transcallosal inhibitory flow, although interactions at subcortical levels cannot be excluded.

Cerebral near infrared spectroscopy: emitter-detector separation must be increased. (8/535)We have compared the effect of increasing optode separation (range 0.7-5.5 cm) on the sensitivity of near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) to discrete reductions in scalp and cerebral oxygenation in 10 healthy men (mean age 32, range 26-39 yr) using multichannel NIRS. During cerebral oligaemia (a mean reduction in middle cerebral artery flow velocity of 47%) induced by a mean reduction in end-tidal PCO2 of 2.4 kPa, the decrease in oxyhaemoglobin detected by NIRS became significantly greater with increasing optode separation (P < 0.0001). In response to scalp hyperaemia induced by inflation and release of a pneumatic scalp tourniquet, increases in oxyhaemoglobin became significantly smaller with increasing optode separation (P < 0.0002). These results are consistent with theoretical models of the behaviour of NIR light in the adult head and support the concept of using multi-detector NIRS to separate intra- and extracranial NIR signal changes. However, the emitter-detector separation used by currently available cerebral oximeters is not large enough to provide optimal spatial resolution. (+info)
1. Alopecia areata: This is an autoimmune disorder that causes patchy hair loss on the scalp or body.
2. Androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness): This is a common condition in which men experience hair loss due to hormonal changes.
3. Telogen effluvium: This is a condition where there is an increase in the number of hair follicles that stop growing and enter the resting phase, leading to excessive hair shedding.
4. Alopecia totalis: This is a condition where all hair on the scalp is lost, including eyebrows and lashes.
5. Alopecia universalis: This is a condition where all body hair is lost.
Alopecia can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, hormonal imbalances, autoimmune disorders, and certain medications. Treatment options for alopecia depend on the underlying cause and may include medications, hair transplantation, or other therapies.
In medical literature, alopecia is often used as a term to describe the loss of hair in specific contexts, such as in the treatment of cancer patients or in the management of autoimmune disorders. It is also used to describe the side effects of certain medications, such as chemotherapy drugs that can cause hair loss.
Symptoms of seborrheic dermatitis may include:
* Redness and inflammation
* Itching or burning sensations
* Thick, flaky scales or crusts on the skin
* Pinkish or reddish patches on the scalp, face, or other areas of the body
If you suspect that you have seborrheic dermatitis, it is essential to consult a dermatologist for an accurate diagnosis. A dermatologist may perform a physical examination, ask questions about your medical history and symptoms, and may also perform tests such as skin scrapings or biopsies to rule out other conditions.
Treatment options for seborrheic dermatitis vary depending on the severity of the condition and may include:
* Topical corticosteroids to reduce inflammation and itching
* Antifungal creams or lotions to control yeast overgrowth
* Medicated shampoos or scalp treatments to target flakes and itching on the scalp
* Oral antibiotics in severe cases or if the condition is infected
In addition to these treatments, there are some home remedies that may help alleviate symptoms of seborrheic dermatitis, such as:
* Applying apple cider vinegar or tea tree oil to the affected area
* Using a medicated shampoo specifically formulated for seborrheic dermatitis
* Avoiding harsh soaps and cleansers that can strip the skin of its natural oils
* Wearing loose, breathable clothing to reduce irritation and sweating
While seborrheic dermatitis is a chronic condition, with proper treatment and self-care, it can be managed and symptoms can be reduced.
There are several types of alopecia areata, including:
1. Alopecia areata patchy - This is the most common form of the disease, where hair loss occurs in patches on the scalp or other parts of the body.
2. Alopecia totalis - Hair loss occurs over the entire scalp.
3. Alopecia universalis - Hair loss occurs over the entire body, including the scalp, eyebrows, and eyelashes.
4. Alopecia areata barbae - Hair loss occurs in the beard area.
5. Alopecia areata traction - Hair loss occurs due to pulling or tension on the hair shaft, often seen in children who pull their own hair.
The symptoms of alopecia areata may include:
1. Patchy hair loss
2. Thinning of hair
3. Redness and scalp inflammation
4. Itching or burning sensation on the scalp
5. Nail changes such as ridging, thinning, or pitting
Alopecia areata can be diagnosed through a physical examination and medical history. A skin scraping or biopsy may be performed to confirm the diagnosis.
Treatment for alopecia areata depends on the severity and location of hair loss, as well as the individual's overall health. Options may include:
1. Topical corticosteroids - Medicated creams or ointments applied directly to the affected area to reduce inflammation and promote hair growth.
2. Oral corticosteroids - Medications taken by mouth to reduce inflammation and suppress the immune system.
3. Anthralin - A medication that is applied to the skin to reduce inflammation and promote hair growth.
4. Immunotherapy - Injections or tablets that stimulate the immune system to attack cancer cells, but also can cause hair loss.
5. Wigs, hats, or other hairpieces - Used to cover up patchy hair loss.
6. Counseling or therapy - To help cope with the emotional impact of hair loss.
7. Hair transplantation - A surgical procedure that involves moving healthy hair follicles from one part of the scalp to another.
It is important to note that these treatments may not work for everyone and may have side effects. It's important to talk to a doctor or dermatologist to determine the best course of treatment for alopecia areata.
In addition to medical treatment, there are also some natural remedies that can help with alopecia areata such as:
1. Diet and nutrition - Eating a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals can promote hair growth.
2. Stress management - High stress levels have been linked to alopecia areata, so finding ways to manage stress, such as through exercise or meditation, may help.
3. Saw palmetto - A herb that has been shown to promote hair growth and slow down hair loss.
4. Fish oil - Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil have been shown to promote hair growth.
5. Coconut oil - Applying coconut oil to the scalp may help to stimulate hair growth.
6. Henna - A natural dye that can be used to color and strengthen hair, and may also help to promote hair growth.
7. Rosemary essential oil - May help to promote hair growth by increasing blood flow to the scalp.
8. Lavender essential oil - May help to reduce stress and promote relaxation, which can help with alopecia areata.
Tinea capitis, also known as ringworm of the scalp, is a common fungal infection that affects the skin and hair on the head. It is caused by a group of fungi called dermatophytes, which thrive in warm, moist environments. The infection typically appears as round, scaly patches on the scalp, with a clear border and a raised, rough texture.
The symptoms of tinea capitis can include:
* Scaly, itchy patches on the scalp
* Hair loss or thinning in the affected areas
* Redness and swelling around the patches
* Flaky skin that may look like dandruff
* Itching, which can be intense and uncomfortable
Tinea capitis is usually diagnosed by a dermatologist or primary care physician based on the appearance of the lesions and a physical examination. A scalp scraping or skin biopsy may also be performed to confirm the diagnosis.
Treatment for tinea capitis typically involves antifungal medications, such as griseofulvin, terbinafine, or itraconazole, which are applied directly to the affected areas of the scalp. In severe cases, oral antifungal medications may be prescribed.
In addition to medical treatment, there are several home remedies that can help relieve the symptoms of tinea capitis, such as:
* Applying an over-the-counter antifungal cream or powder to the affected areas
* Using a medicated shampoo containing ketoconazole or selenium sulfide
* Keeping the scalp clean and dry, and avoiding sharing hair accessories or using unwashed towels
* Wearing loose, breathable clothing to reduce sweating and prevent further fungal growth.
It's important to note that tinea capitis can be contagious and can spread to other people through close contact with an infected individual. Therefore, it's important to take steps to prevent the spread of the infection, such as avoiding sharing personal items and keeping the affected areas clean and dry.

2. Gallstones: Small, hard deposits that form in the gallbladder and can cause abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting.
3. Salivary gland stones: Small deposits that form in the salivary glands and can cause swelling, pain, and difficulty swallowing.
4. Bone spurs: Small, bony growths that can form on the edges of bones and can cause pain, swelling, and limited mobility.
5. Dental stones: Small deposits that form in the teeth and can cause toothache, sensitivity, and gum inflammation.
6. Urinary tract stones: Small, hard deposits that form in the urinary tract and can cause pain, frequency, and urgency.
7. Eye stones: Small deposits that form in the eyes and can cause pain, redness, and vision loss.
Piedra is a Spanish word that literally means "stone," and it is used to describe these small, hard deposits that can form in various parts of the body. The term is often used in medical contexts to help patients understand their condition and the treatment options available.
1. Alopecia areata: This is a condition where patches of hair fall out, resulting in bald spots on the scalp or other parts of the body.
2. Androgenetic alopecia: This is the most common form of hair loss, also known as male pattern baldness or female pattern baldness. It occurs when hormones cause hair to thin and fall out, leading to a receding hairline in men and a gradual thinning of hair on the top of the head in women.
3. Telogen effluvium: This is a condition where there is a sudden increase in the number of hair follicles that stop growing and enter the resting phase, leading to excessive hair shedding.
4. Trichotillomania: This is a psychological disorder characterized by an irresistible urge to pull out one's own hair, often resulting in noticeable hair loss.
5. Lichen planus: This is a skin condition that can cause hair loss, as well as itching and inflammation on the scalp.
6. Tinea capitis: This is a fungal infection of the scalp that can cause hair loss and inflammation.
7. Folliculitis: This is an inflammation of the hair follicles, which can cause hair loss and scarring.
8. Traction alopecia: This is a condition where hair loss occurs due to constant pulling or tugging on the hair, such as with tight hairstyles like braids or ponytails.
9. Chemical damage: Exposure to harsh chemicals in hair products can damage the hair and lead to hair loss.
10. Hair thinning: This is a condition where hair becomes thinner over time, often due to hormonal imbalances or nutritional deficiencies.
These are just a few examples of hair diseases that can affect people. It's important to note that many of these conditions can be treated with medical care and changes to one's lifestyle and diet. If you suspect you have a hair disease, it's important to consult a dermatologist or other qualified healthcare professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.
