Varan B, Yakut K, Harman A. Transcatheter retrieval of embolized catheter using venovenous loop in a neonate. Turk J Pediatr 2018; 60: 113-115. Umbilical venous catheters are reliable in providing adequate medical care for premature babies however complications include infections, bleeding, thrombosis, catheter occlusion and migration of a piece of catheter to other parts in the body. Here, we present a case with migration of a piece of umbilical venous catheter which has been trapped between hepatic vein and right upper pulmonary vein causing apnea episodes, recurrent respiratory symptoms, need for mechanical ventilation and increase of acute phase reactants...

Neurofibromatosis type 2 is a rarely encountered autosomal dominant disorder manifesting with typical radiological findings. These patients have a predilection for development of benign tumors in the central nervous system. Although the presenting symptom is most commonly hearing loss due to acoustic schwannomas, symptoms emanating from other cranial tumors are not uncommon...

Gangliogliomas (GGs) represent approximately 0.4%-1.0% of all brain tumors. Anaplastic gangliogliomas (AGGs) form 5-10% of all GGs. They are a mixed neuronal-glial tumor of central nervous system and composed by two cell lines; neuronal (ganglionic) and glial cells. Anaplastic component of AGGs is usually glial cells. Malignant neuronal component is a rare condition...
