Atypical sellar cyst: A rare case.

Conclusion: Sellar cysts present similarly. They are differentiated based on their histological features. The sellar cyst we encountered had features different from the ones already described in the literature. PMID: 32637208 [PubMed]

We report the unique case of a 40-year-old female presented with crescendo headache, blurred vision, and recurrent generalized tonic–clonic seizure. She had a minor neck injury 1 week before but attracted no more attention. Neurological tests on admission yielded a Glasgow Coma Scale score of 13. No obvious focal neurological deficit apart from positive signs of meningeal irritation was presented. Diagnoses: Xanthochromia and hemorrhagic cerebrospinal fluid with pleocytosis was found on lumbar puncture. Cranial computed tomography was negative but magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated bilateral areas of vasogeni...

Conclusion: The diagnosis of intraventricular cystic papillary meningioma depends mainly on its histology and imaging features. Total resection and adjuvant radiotherapy can result in a relatively good prognosis of patients with intraventricular cystic papillary meningiomas.

Conclusions: SIH may be an under-recognized cause of EH. We support the theory that negative intracranial pressure transmitted through the cochlear aqueduct and perilymph leads to EH. Despite the variations in treatments, the overall prognosis is excellent.

We aimed to evaluate the efficacy of an enhanced mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR+) vs stress management for headache (SMH). We performed a randomized, assessor-blind, clinical trial of 98 adults with episodic migraine recruited at a single academic center comparing MBSR+ (n = 50) with SMH (n = 48). MBSR+ and SMH were delivered weekly by group for 8 weeks, then biweekly for another 8 weeks. The primary clinical outcome was reduction in headache days from baseline to 20 weeks. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) outcomes included activity of left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) and cognitive task network during ...

Abstract Cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CADASIL) is primarily characterized by migraine, stroke, mood disturbances, and cognitive decline. Ataxia has seldom been reported as a presenting symptom. Here, we review reports of CADASIL presenting as ataxia and compare these to the first pathologically confirmed case of CADASIL presenting with progressive ataxia. A 50-year-old woman presented with progressive truncal ataxia. Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed white matter hyperintensities in the bilateral anterior temporal lobes, external capsules...

AbstractBackgroundPost-traumatic headache (PTH) is one of the most frequent symptoms following mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). Neuroimaging studies implicate hypothalamic function connectivity (FC) disruption as an important factor in pain disorders. However, it is unknown whether there are alterations in the hypothalamus-based resting state FC within PTH following mTBI at the acute stage and its relationship with headache symptom measurement.MethodsForty-four mTBI patients with PTH, 27 mTBI patients without PTH and 43 healthy controls who were well matched for age, gender, and years of education were enrolled in this ...

Conclusion: This is a very interesting case, both for the rarity of the pituitary melanoma metastasis and for the singular therapeutic course carried out by the patient. This is the first case of a pituitary melanoma metastasis with BRAF mutation, successfully treated with the combination of dabrafenib and trametinib after incomplete surgical removal.

AbstractA 64 ‐year‐old man was admitted for a neck pain, posterior headaches, fever (39°C), and an inflammatory syndrome lasting for six weeks (persistent elevation of C‐reactive protein, around 200 mg/l). Because of a dry cough, a bronchopneumonia was firstly suspected: antibiotics were inefficient. The patient had no headache, no visual loss, no jaw or limb claudication. He had been diagnosed 3 years before with a polymyalgia rheumatica and was still treated with methotrexate. Because of the immunosuppressive drugs, we first suspected an infectious spondylodiscitis: the cervical Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Brain herniation (BH) into arachnoid granulation has been remarkable in recent years. PURPOSE: To evaluate the damage in herniated parenchyma into the giant arachnoid granulation (GAG) and to investigate the clinical-demographic importance of this damage. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Patients with BH into GAG were retrospectively included in the study. Each of the patients had at least one high-resolution 3D magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequence. The arachnoid granulation dimensions, locations, and origin of herniated parenchyma were evaluated by two experienced radiologists. The demogr...
