We report a case of cerebellar schwannoma in a year-old woman. The tumor was defined on computed tomographic and magnetic resonance imaging scans and confirmed on surgery.

The solid part of the tumor appeared to be derived from the inferior vermis of the cerebellum, the cystic part extending toward the medulla oblongata and the foramen by:   Four cases of simple cyst of the cerebellum treated at Stanford University Medical Center are presented.

Review of the literature and past experience at Stanford suggest that they are uncommon. They seem to occur most often in middle age, presenting the signs and symptoms of an expanding cerebellar mass, and appear to be adequately treated by Cited by: Presence of an arachnoid cyst at craniospinal junction is not very common.

This is a very rare anatomic site, with only seven other cases reported in the literature. We report a case of large intradural craniospinal arachnoid cyst presenting with obstructive hydrocephalus and cranial nerve palsy.

A case of a cerebellopontine angle arachnoid cyst spontaneously disappeared is reported. A 1-year-andmonth old boy was suffered from sudden onset of left facial palsy. CT scan demonstrated dilatation of left internal auditory canal and a cystic lesion in the left cerebellopontine angle.

Adult posterior fossa arachnoid cysts are rare lesions that are considered to be mostly congenital in origin. We present year-old man admitted with a chief complaint of tremor and balance problems for the past 2 months.

He had ataxia on examination. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a well circumscribed midline cystic lesion of the posterior fossa sharing the same signal characteristics Author: Ibrahima Berete, Alpha Boubacar Bah, Hammas Nawal, Mohammed Benzagmout, Khalid Chakour, Faiz Chaoui.

The incidence of epidermoid tumors is between 1% to 2% of all intracranial tumors.[2,3,4,5,6,7] The usual locations of epidermoid tumor are parasellar region and cerebellopontine angle[7,8,9,10,11] and is less commonly located in sylvian fissure, suprasellar region, cerebral[12,13,14] and cerebellar hemispheres,[12,14,15] and lateral and fourth.

Macrocerebellum is a rare entity characterized by an enlarged cerebellum. We describe a case of a month-old child with macrocerebellum. We performed serial volumetric analysis [total brain. This report documents the second case in the literature of a symptomatic elderly patient with an arachnoid cyst located in the foramen of Magendie.

Case Description: A year-old male had weakness in the lower limbs, imbalance, and gait disturbance for 3 years, associated with frequent falls.

We report a year-old woman who presented 16 years previously with a histologically typical enterogenous cyst of the cerebellum. Fourteen years after its incomplete excision, numerous supratentorial, infratentorial, and spinal suharachnoid cysts were by: Only in one case of multiple parietal cysts, rupture occurred while delivering the cyst and in the rest six cases cysts were excised in toto.

The large cysts in frontal region were excised by hydrodissection i.e., by gentle saline irrigation around the wall.

In this case report, we describe a 12 year-old boy with a middle cranial fossa arachnoid cyst presenting with progressive headache, and bilateral subdural hygroma following a trivial head trauma. View. In this report, we present a unique case of a patient presenting with cerebellar dysfunction, found to have a petromastoid epidermoid cyst in association with an ipsilateral cerebellar abscesses, following a penetrating trauma sustained to the external auditory canal canal about 20 years ago.

Intracranial hydatid disease is rare, with reported incidence of % of all cases with hydatid disease. Hydatid disease is endemic in the middle east, Mediterranean countries, South America, North Africa and Australia. Cerebral hydatid disease is more common in paediatric population, and 80% of patients in the present series were children.

This high incidence in children is probably related Cited by: The current study reported the case of a male adolescent presenting with double-vision and right-sided facial numbness that further investigation revealed a neuroglial cyst of the fifth cranial nerve. To the best of our knowledge, it is the first report of a neuroglial cyst arising from a cranial nerve sheath.

Case Description History and Author: Mohammad Samadian, Mahmoud Omidbeigi, Mehrdad Hosseinzadeh Bakhtevari, Sina Asaadi, Armin Jafari, Om. Brain echinococcosis is the most common brain parasitic infection in the world. It happens in a very rare location, representing 1% to 2% all cases with hydatid disease.

It is more common by approximately 50–70% in pediatric population and young adultswith a male predominance. The definite hosts of echinococcus are various carnivores; man is an accidental : Said Hilmani. Improved visualization of the posterior fossa structures has led to an increased recognition of cerebellar malformations, including the Dandy-Walker malformation, Joubert syndrome, rhombencephalosynapsis, tectocerebellar dysrhaphia, and so forth.

New anomalies continue to be discovered, highlighting the fact that cerebellar anomalies are poorly understood and have largely been ignored in the.

In: Cited by: Pulmonary and cardiac involvement by cysticercosis is extremely rare, and is usually asymptomatic. We report the case of a year-old boy who presented with a history of headache and vomiting and was found to have disseminated cysticercosis with pulmonary and cardiac involvement; the emphasis is on the rare occurrence of pulmonary, cardiac, pancreatic, intraocular, and extradural spinal canal.

Chiari malformation (CM) is a structural defect in the cerebellum, characterized by a downward displacement of one or both cerebellar tonsils through the foramen magnum and Syringomyelia is a chronic progressive degenerative disorder characterized by a.

Neuroglial cysts are congenital lesions that develop a sequestration of neural tube embryonic elements that develop into a fluid-filled cavity, lined by glial cell and located within the white matter 4. They can be intra- or extra-parenchymal with the former being more common.

The frontal lobe is thought to be the most typical location 1,3. However, extra-axial medulloblastoma in posterior fossa is an uncommon diagnosis. We report a case in a month-old male who presented with repeated complaints of abdominal pain, intermittent emesis, and diarrhea, and diagnosed with right cerebellar extra-axial medulloblastoma, which was surgically : Elizabeth Presutto, Matthew Chappell, Joseph Fullmer, Sajeev Ezhapilli.

The cerebellum may also be involved in cognitive function and linked to human intelligence. Purkinje Cells of the Cerebellum As a young tennis player, my father was my coach. Dandy–Walker malformation (DWM), also known as Dandy–Walker syndrome (DWS), is a rare congenital brain malformation in which the part joining the two hemispheres of the cerebellum (the cerebellar vermis) does not fully form, and the fourth ventricle and space behind the cerebellum (the posterior fossa) are enlarged with cerebrospinal of those affected develop hydrocephalus Specialty: Medical genetics.

They represent a major diagnostic challenge, and inaccurate interpretation with significant implications for counseling and management has been reported. 1,2 The problem is two fold: On the one hand, sonography is not an ideal tool for the visualization of the posterior fossa structures, particularly in the second trimester of gestation; on the.

We report a case of a DS male patient who had an incidentally discovered neuroglial cyst in left cerebellar vermis. He visited our hospital with gait disturbance and fatigue. But, the neurologic exam was normal.

To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of a neuroglial cyst in a trisomy 21 : Seung Do Yang, Seung Ju Lee, Dong Hwan Lee, Yong Hee Hong. The authors report a wide and updated revision of hydranencephaly, including a literature review, and present the case of a patient affected by this condition, still alive at 36 months.

Hydranencephaly is an isolated and with a severe prognosis abnormality, affecting the cerebral mantle. In this condition, the cerebral hemispheres are completely or almost completely absent and are replaced Cited by: INTRODUCTION.

Arachnoid cysts are benign intra-arachnoid collections of cerebrospinal fluid and comprise around 1% of the intracranial masses.

Arachnoid cysts of the craniospinal junction are very rare lesions,[] with only seven cases reported in the any case presenting with such a large craniospinal arachnoid cyst, as it is in ours, has yet to be reported.

In a recent published case report, The former is often routinely called a dermoid cyst, but there is a nuanced distinction that is less relevant for the purposes of this article. Shintaku, M et al. Well-formed cerebellum and brainstem-like structures in a mature ovarian teratoma: Neuropathological observations.

Japanese Society of.Tumors that arose primarily in the cerebellum and infiltrated the brain stem were called “transitional.”[13] Studies show that (1)H magnetic resonance spectroscopy detects key differences in the metabolites of the main types of cerebellar tumors and yields potential non-invasive biomarkers of prognosis.[] In the series of Desai et al.Rhombencephalosynapsis is a rare genetic brain abnormality of malformation of the cerebellar vermis is either absent or only partially formed, and fusion is seen in varying degree between the cerebellar hemispheres, fusion of the middle cerebellar peduncles, and fusion of the dentate nuclei.

Findings range from mild truncal ataxia, to severe cerebral palsy.
