Clinical Characteristics and Prognostic Factors of Treatment in Pediatric Posterior Cranial Fossa Ependymoma

Conclusions: Based on our data, GTR is indicated as the most optimal choice. Recurrence is linked to lower tumor sphericity, inhomogeneous tumor texture, and STR/partial resection. Tumor located on the lateral side might be prone for an early recurrence.Pediatr Neurosurg

Today, we got called on a patient in the ICU who recently had a new brain mass removed surgically. The specimen came back positive for an aggressive brain tumor known as glioblastoma multiforme. We discussed his diagnosis and prognosis with him at bedside alone, with his wife and daughter on speakerphone given visitor restrictions due […]Find jobs at  Careers by KevinMD.com.  Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now.  Learn more.

Macrophages are cells of the innate immune system, found throughout the body, and which play a great many roles beyond the obvious ones of defending against invading pathogens. They destroy cancerous and senescent cells, ingest molecular waste and debris between cells, and participate in the processes of tissue regeneration and maintenance, to pick a few examples. Further, the immune system of the brain includes an analogous population of cells known as microglia, which additionally take on supporting roles essential to the proper functioning of neurons and their synaptic connections. Chronic inflammation is importa...

Contributors : Myung-Ju Ahn ; Hae-Ock LeeSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Homo sapiensWe performed single cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) for 208,506 cells derived from 58 lung adenocarcinomas from 44 patients, which covers primary tumour, lymph node and brain metastases, and pleural effusion in addition to normal lung tissues and lymph nodes. The extensive single cell profiles depicted a complex cellular atlas of lung adenocarcinoma progression which includes cancer, stromal, and immune cells in the surrounding tumor microenvironments.

Conclusion: Our findings suggested that NMDAR encephalitis might be associated with clear cell renal carcinoma. When patients present with unexplained seizures, neuropsychiatric disorder, or other brain symptoms, clinicians should be careful with paraneoplastic neurological disorders. Early diagnosis and treatment of primary tumors might show improvement.

Authors: Szmuda T, Ali S, SÅ‚oniewski P Abstract BACKGROUND: Fluorescence-guided surgery (FGS) with 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) his proven to assist neurosurgeons to achieve a more complete brain tumour resection. However, 5-ALA-guided surgery is limited since it is often difficult to distinguish the colour difference between the resected areas of malignant brain tumours from their background. Our aim was to evaluate which colour difference formula was the most optimal to distinguish between malignant brain tumors from the background healthy tissue using 5-ALA fluorescence. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 37 patients ...

J Neurol Surg RepDOI: 10.1055/s-0034-1396657Stereotactic gamma knife surgery (GKS)-induced brain tumors are extremely rare, and no ependymal tumors induced by GKS have been reported. Therefore, little is known about their clinical, pathologic, and genetic features. In addition, a regimen of adjuvant chemotherapy for anaplastic ependymoma (AE) has not been established. A 77-year-old man presented with a gait disturbance and left-side cerebellar ataxia more than 19 years after GKS performed for a cerebellar arteriovenous malformation. Imaging studies demonstrated an enhancing mass in the irradiated field with signs of intrav...
