Lhermitte-Duclos Disease in a Six-Year Old Child: A Rare Presentation

In this report, we present this rare occurrence in childhood and discuss the clinical course and management. LDD is very rare in early childhood and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of posterior fossa lesions.Pediatr Neurosurg

Left ventricular noncompaction cardiomyopathy is a heart disease with relevant potential complications including heart failure, life-threatening arrhythmias, and embolic events. In order to prevent adverse outcomes, it is crucial to appropriately recognize and manage this cardiomyopathy. In this paper, we report the main clinical presentations and imaging modalities used for diagnosis, including echocardiography and magnetic resonance imaging. We highlight the role of a comprehensive functional cardiac evaluation and the possible prognostic implications of both systolic and diastolic dysfunction. Furthermore, we summarize ...

Authors: Mégevand P, Seeck M Abstract Introduction: Electric source imaging (ESI) refers to the estimation of the cerebral sources of electric signals recorded at the head surface using electroencephalography (EEG). Thanks to the availability of EEG systems with high numbers of electrodes and to progress in software to analyze the signals they collect, ESI can be applied to epilepsy-related pathological EEG signals like interictal spikes and seizures.Areas covered: In this narrative review, we discuss selected original research articles on the use of ESI in epilepsy patients considered for surgery. Epilepsy-...

Authors: Kohashi R, Shinozaki T, Sekine N, Watanabe K, Takanezawa D, Nishihara C, Ozasa K, Ikeda M, Noma N, Okada-Ogawa A, Imamura Y Abstract Burning mouth syndrome (BMS) is classified into idiopathic orofacial pain conditions. Although central and peripheral neuropathic mechanisms are believed to be involved, the etiology remains to be fully elucidated. The present study examined temporal brain responses to an ongoing hot stimulus to investigate the pain modulating system in patients with BMS. The thermal stimulation sequence comprised baseline (32°C, 40 s) to warm (40°C, 32 s) to baseline (32°C, 40 s)...

AbstractPurposeTo evaluate effectiveness of the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values of the peripancreatic lymphadenopathy to differentiate tuberculous lymphadenopathy from metastatic lymphadenopathy.Materials and methodsTwenty-nine patients with 65 peripancreatic necrotic tuberculous lymphadenopathy and 31 patients with 47 peripancreatic necrotic metastatic lymphadenopathy from pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, who underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), were included in this study. MRI features in the T1-weighted image (WI), T2WI, and diffusion-weighted image were analyzed. The ADC values of necrotic and non-n...

We report a case of capillary hemangioma of lobular subtype in the calvarium of a 28-year-old pregnant woman which presented as a sore and rapidly growing bulge over the left fronto-parietal region. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain and skull showed an expansive tumor with brain displacement, skull erosion, and scalp infiltration. The tumor was surgically removed, and histopathological examination showed a capillary hemangioma of lobular subtype. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of a lobular capillary hemangioma in the calvarium, and it represents a rarity to be considered among the many other d...

Authors: Stević M, Vlajković M, Veličković F, Stanojević G, Nestorović M, Petrović F Abstract A 69 year old patient was admitted to hospital with massive gastrointestinal hemorrhage. The clinical presentation of the patient, except for bleeding, was dominated by the presence of neurofibromatosis type 1 - Von Recklinghausen disease. The patient was referred to multislice computed tomography (CT) angiography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), esophagogastroduodenoscopy and colonoscopy, which were performed without successful detection of the bleeding site. The MRI examination showed the existence of a tumor lo...
