Authors: AlShazli ABAD, Amer AY, Sultan AM, Barakat AS, Koptan W, ElMiligui Y, Shaker H Abstract Study Design: This was a prospective case series of 30 patients with post-discectomy syndrome with an average of 18 months of follow-up (level IV). Purpose: The efficacy of post-discectomy syndrome managed by minimally invasive surgery transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (MIS-TLIF) was evaluated. Overview of Literature: In post-discectomy syndrome wherein conservative treatment had failed, the best surgical treatment modality still remains controversial. Methods: Patients were functionally assessed using ...

Conclusions: EH of multiple bones responded favorably to intravenous Zometa with improvement of bone metabolic markers. After 1 year on follow-up, the patient was doing well with no significant pain. We suggest that bisphosphonates should be considered in the treatment of multifocal osteolytic EH of bone.

The objective of this study is to report an extremely rare case of a giant benign fibrous histiocytoma with pleural involvement in spinal region successfully operated by posterior spinal surgery. The management of these unique cases has yet to be well-documented. Patient concerns: A 23-year-old man presented with a 2-month history of continuous and progressive back pain. A giant, expanding lesion of the T7 vertebral and paraspinal region with pleural involvement was identified. Diagnoses: Computed tomography scan and magnetic resonance imaging of spine showed expanding lesion of the T7 vertebral and paraspinal region...

Rationale: Paragangliomas are rare neuroendocrine tumors that originate in specialized cells derived from the neural crest with metastasis to the thoracic spine being among the rarest forms. Here, we are presenting a detailed analysis of a case of malignant paraganglioma in the thoracic spinal region in a 14-year-old boy. Our focus is to emphasize the importance of considering malignant paraganglioma as a diagnosis and guiding the perioperative management upon surgical treatment. The management of these unique cases has yet to be well-documented. Patient concerns: A 14-year-old boy presented with a 5-month history of ...

AbstractSarcoidosis is a rare systemic disease characterized by growth and organization of inflammatory cells in a granuloma. Granulomas can localize in any parts of the human body. The main localization is represented by lungs, lymph nodes, eyes and skin. Any organ, however, can be affected. Central nervous system (CNS) represents a rare localization of sarcoidosis, in fact, only 1% of patient with sarcoidosis present brain and/or spinal cord localization of the granulomas associated with this disease. This condition takes the name of Neurosarcoidosis. Its diagnosis and management pose a significant challenge, as its clin...

ConclusionThis is the first case in the literature to describe a post-laminectomy pseudarthrosis leading to a significant sagittal malalignment in a patient with ochronotic spondyloarthropathy. Management of such a case is challenging as the spine is partially ankylosed; therefore, a long construct is advisable to avoid ankylosing disorders related complications.

In this report, we present the long-term functional and radiological outcomes following nonoperative treatment of such a fracture in a 5-year-old female. The patient was referred to our tertiary centre with radiological progression of angulation from 10° to 35° within 5 weeks of the injury, despite wearing a rigid collar. She had no neurological compromise. Although we examined the fracture under general anaesthetic, and subsequently applied halo traction, there was no effect on alignment. The halo device was removed after 11 days and a rigid collar was fitted again. The patient had no pain or neurological symptoms...
