Unilateral isolated hypoglossal nerve palsy due to pathologically adherent PICA fusiform aneurysm - A case report.

CONCLUSION: The PICA has a very close relationship to the hypoglossal nerve, and its fusiform dilatation could cause isolated hypoglossal nerve dysfunction. Pathological adhesions between hypoglossal rootlets and the PICA aneurysm wall could be a possible contributor in the development and progression of hypoglossal nerve palsy.

Positron emission tomography (PET) is an advanced radionuclide technique that has been available for decades. Originally used as a research tool that contributed to advances in the understanding of cardiovascular pathophysiology, it is now becoming established in clinical practice and is increasingly used in the diagnosis...

A 42-year-old man presented to the emergency department with a 20-day history of blood-stained sputum. Computed tomography angiography (CTA) of the pulmonary arteries demonstrated multiple low-density filling defects in the main trunk, lobar branches of the pulmonary artery, Superior vena cava (SVC) and right ventricle (RV) (Fig. 1A and B, C, D). One non-calcified nodule and small patchy shadows were noted at right lung field (Fig. 2 E1, E2), which were suspicious of metastasis. Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) and cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) had revealed a mass within the right atrium (RA) and RV (...

We present a case of complex concomitant occurrence of a CSA and a CCA complicated with delay aneurysmal rupture (DAR) resulting in carotid cavernous fistula (CCF) after our initial treatment of the patient with pipeline embolization devices (PLEDs) Patient Concerns: We present a 64-year old female who we admitted at our institution due to one-year history of double vision. Neurological examinations were unremarkable. Diagnosis: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computer tomography (CT)-scan revealed dual aneurysms on the ICA. Digital subtracting angiogram (DSA) confirmed a small CSA and a large CCA on the right I...

Scalp arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are rare entities that may present as large, tortuous vascular lesions with resultant craniofacial deformity. Radiologic findings include feeding arteries and veins associated with dilated tortuous vessels. Intracranial extension is rare. A 5-year-old African American male presented with an occipital mass presumed to be a dermoid cyst on referral. Further workup revealed the presence of a scalp AVM that demonstrated extension into the left sigmoid sinus. Radiologic and intraoperative images are presented. Literature search revealed only 4 patients with scalp AVM extending intracrani...

We describe a previously healthy 11-month-old female infant with nondepressed skull fracture who developed increased ICP in the absence of intracranial changes on imaging. Funduscopic examination revealed unilateral papilledema, and opening pressure on lumbar puncture was elevated at 35 cm of H2O. Computed tomography scan demonstrated a nondepressed occipital bone fracture. However, further imaging, including magnetic resonance imaging with angiogram/venogram, did not reveal any intracranial abnormalities. In particular, there was no evidence of sinus venous thrombosis. Given her presentation and signs of increased ICP, sh...
