Use of Second Window ICG in spinal cord biopsy of a mildly contrast-enhancing lesion: Technical note and review of the literature
Conclusion: Second Window ICG is effective in visualizing otherwise visually unremarkable spinal cord lesions. This technology can facilitate biopsy of these lesions and possibly their surgical resection.PMID:34102223 | DOI:10.1016/j.neuchi.2021.05.007 (Source: Neuro-Chirurgie)

Moving forward, a larger prospective study with a larger patient cohort is needed to further validate the treatment paradigm.PMID:34051248 | DOI:10.1016/j.neuchi.2021.05.002 (Source: Neuro-Chirurgie)

The Unilateral Frontotemporal Approach for Large and Giant Olfactory Groove Meningioma: Experience with 18 Consecutive Patients
CONCLUSION: The UFTA for OGM is a relatively safe and effective approach, ensuring a high total removal rate with low mortality and morbidity. This study, with a reasonable number of patients, is one of the few in the literature on the outcome of this approach.PMID:34051249 | DOI:10.1016/j.neuchi.2021.04.023 (Source: Neuro-Chirurgie)

Papilledema secondary to vestibular schwannoma: an atypical case without intracranial hypertension
We describe the atypical case of a 39-years-old man who presented with bilateral papilledema revealing a vestibular schwannoma, but without hydrocephalus and with normal intracranial pressure. Ophtalmologic signs were completely resolved after tumor removal. The pathophysiological mechanism generally described to explain bilateral papilledema in such cases is tumor-induced hyperproteinorachia. However, in the absence of hydrocephalus or intracranial hypertension, this case raises the question of the mechanisms involved in the visual impairment related to vestibular schwannoma.PMID:33989639 | DOI:10.1016/j.neuchi.2021.04.01...

First case of cyproterone acetate induced multiple meningiomas in identical female twins: a case report
We report a case of identical twin sisters who developed multiple, atypically located meningiomas in the setting of long-term CPA use. Eighteen-month follow-up showed spontaneous decrease of meningiomas after cessation of CPA. This case illustrates CPA's ability to induce development of atypically located meningiomas that differ even between identical twins, confirms benefit of surgical abstention, and raises questions regarding security of use of CPA.PMID:33989640 | DOI:10.1016/j.neuchi.2021.04.021 (Source: Neuro-Chirurgie)

Meningiomas in patients with long-term exposition to progestins: Characteristics and outcome
CONCLUSIONS: Outcome at progestins discontinuation is favorable but different comparing CPA versus ChlA-NomA and comparing tumor location. Long-term follow-up is required. In most cases, simple observation is recommended and surgery should be avoided.PMID:33989642 | DOI:10.1016/j.neuchi.2021.04.018 (Source: Neuro-Chirurgie)

Nocardia farcinica cerebral abscess: a systematic review of treatment strategies
CONCLUSION: urgent multimodal MRI is necessary in face with clinical suspicion of cerebral nocardiosis. In case of single or multiple small cerebral abscesses, microbiological documentation can be obtained with puncture of pseudotumoral visceral lesions. In case of large or symptomatic cerebral abscess, an aggressive surgical excision seems a reliable option and can be preferred over needle aspiration. Long-term antibiotic therapy with cotrimoxazole is necessary thereafter.PMID:33989644 | DOI:10.1016/j.neuchi.2021.04.022 (Source: Neuro-Chirurgie)
