Choroid Plexus Papilloma of Bilateral Lateral Ventricle in an Infant Conceived by in vitro Fertilization

In conclusion, imaging is an effective approach of investigation. CPP could be highly suspected according to the features of hydrocephalus, lobulated appearance, and homogeneous enhancement on imaging. Total surgical removal is a valid curative method for CPP.Pediatr Neurosurg

AbstractThe intra- and periventricular location tumor (IPVT) of a brain remains a hard challenge for the neurosurgeon because of the deep location and eloquent anatomic associations. Due to this high risk of iatrogenic injury, many surgeons elect to perform biopsies of such lesions to establish a diagnosis. On the one hand, stereotaxic needle biopsy (SNB) is a minimally invasive procedure but with a significant risk of complications and a high risk of lack of tissue for molecular analyses for this region [Fukushima in Neurosurgery 2:110 –113 (1978)]; on the other hand, the use of endoscopic intraventricular biopsy (E...

AbstractSurvival of pediatric patients with brain tumor has increased over the past 20  years, and increasing evidence of iatrogenic toxicities has been reported. In follow-ups, images are acquired at different time points where substantial changes of brain morphology occur, due to childhood physiological development and treatment effects. To address the image registration complexity , we propose two multi-metric approaches (Mplus,Mdot), combining mutual information (MI) and normalized gradient field filter (NGF). The registration performance of the proposed metrics was assessed on a simulated dataset (Brainweb) and c...

AbstractPurposeCerebral edema from brain tumors can cause neurological impairment. Steroids treat edema but with possible adverse effects. We surveyed providers regarding steroid use in newly diagnosed patients with brain tumors to determine if practices are standard or markedly variable.MethodsAn anonymous voluntary online survey was sent to members of neuro-oncology consortiums. Four clinical scenarios were provided and questions regarding initiation of steroids, type, dose, formulation, and duration were asked. Demographic information was collected.Results369 providers received the survey, 76 responded (20.6% response r...

Conclusions: Childhood central nervous system tumors nowadays exhibit improved cure and survival rates. However, the ototoxicity resulting from the chemotherapy treatment may accompany patients for the rest of their lives. This study reveals that this occurrence is not negligible, and the association of radiotherapy and the presence of hydrocephalus can be potentiating factors.

Authors: Li C, Wang SJ, Tang GC, Liu LT, Chen GX Abstract Cerebral syphilitic gumma is a rarely reported disease of the central nervous system. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an important diagnostic method for syphilitic gumma. The present study aimed to describe and characterize neuroimaging results from 6 patients with pathologically diagnosed cerebral syphilitic gumma. The 6 patients (age, 32-61 years) underwent brain CT and MRI, with 1 patient also undergoing whole-body 2-deoxy-2-(fluorine-18)fluoro-D-glucose-positron emission tomography/CT (18F-FDG PET/CT). Non-enhanced CT, conventional T1 weighted imagin...

Conclusion We believe this may be the first report of the development of hydrocephalus following surgical resection of these large lesions. Based on our observations, we propose that a combination of superior sagittal sinus occlusion and changes in brain elasticity and compliance affect the brain's CSF absorptive capacity, which ultimately lead to hydrocephalus development. We suggest that neurosurgeons be aware that postoperative hydrocephalus can quickly develop following treatment of giant-sized vertex-based meningiomas, and that correction of hydrocephalus with shunting can readily be achieved.
