Sumit Das, Lee-Cyn Ang, David Ramsay
Cavernous hemangioma in the sellar region is quite rare with only a handful of cases being reported in the English literature. Its clinical manifestations and imaging characteristics can mimic those of a pituitary adenoma. We report two cases of recurrent sellar lesions, both of which were clinically suspected of being pituitary adenomas but histologically confirmed as cavernous hemangiomas. The first case is of a 67-year-old female whose initial resection was diagnosed as "venous angioma". Neuroimaging performed 27 years later demonstrated significant growth of the lesion involving the right cavernous sinus and encasing the right internal carotid artery...

Pilocytic astrocytoma (PA), featuring activation of the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway, is the most common tumor of the pediatric central nervous system. However, it remains unknown whether MAPK activation is present in the reactive gliosis of non-neoplastic lesions. Therefore, we investigated the expression of MAPK in reactive gliosis associated with cavernous angiomas. Immunohistochemical expression and the extent of BRAF, ERK, p38, and JNK were investigated in 10 patients with gliosis surrounding cavernous angiomas (GS group) and 10 patients with PA (PA group)...

A muscle biopsy is currently requested to assess the diagnosis of an idiopathic inflammatory myopathy overlapping with a systemic disease. During the past few years, the classification of inflammatory myopathy subtypes has been revisited progressively on the basis of correlations between clinical phenotypes, autoantibodies and histological data. Several syndromic entities are now more clearly defined, and the aim of the present review is to clarify the contribution of muscle biopsy in a setting of idiopathic inflammatory myopathies overlapping with systemic diseases...

The etiology of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is frequently undetermined. We aimed to assess the impact of the neuropathological study on the etiologic diagnosis of ICH. Patients with ICH admitted to a tertiary hospital in the last 14 years were identified, and histological samples of surgically-drained ICH were retrieved. Blinded from neuropathological results, a clinical etiology was hypothesized. Pathological samples were reviewed, and immunohistochemistry study for β-amyloid was performed in all the cases where structural abnormalities were not identified...

TTF-1 is widely used as a marker in routine surgical pathology in the work-up of malignancy. Aberrant expression of TTF-1 in extrapulmonary and extrathyroidal malignancies is a frequently reported phenomenon. In addition to the recently characterized pituicyte-derived tumors of the sella, immunoreactivity has been reported in diffuse gliomas with the SPT24 clone. Here, we sought to evaluate TTF-1 expression with three commercially available clones in a large series of gliomas. Expression was compared across the newly defined diagnostic entities in the 2016 WHO Classification of CNS Tumors...

Bacillus cereus is a widely-distributed, gram-positive or variable, rod-shaped bacterium frequently considered a contaminant in clinical specimens. It is recognized as a potential pathogen inducing self-limiting emetic or diarrheal food poisoning or localized infection in immunocompetent patients. True B. cereus bacteremia is uncommon and mainly observed in fragile patients, notably in immunocompromised individuals. We report clinical, radiological, and pathological findings of a 64-year-old patient with a history of acute myeloid leukemia who initially presented a fever while neutropenic after the induction of a second cycle of chemotherapy...

The Brain Tumor Epidemiology Consortium (BTEC) is an international consortium that aims to advance the development of multicenter and interdisciplinary collaborations that focus on research related to the etiology, outcomes, and prevention of brain tumors. The 18th annual BTEC meeting was held in Banff, AB, Canada, on June 27 - 29, 2017. The meeting focused on the intersection between epidemiology and precision medicine, that is, the use of molecular indicators of risk, early disease and prognosis or precision epidemiology...

In this report, we present a 53-year-old woman with primary mast cell sarcoma of the thoracic spine vertebrae. Mast cell sarcoma is an aggressive and rare cancer. To date, no cases of primary mast cell sarcoma have been reported in the spinal vertebrae. The patient initially presented with a 1-month history of pelvic and abdominal pain. Inconclusive gynecological evaluation resulted in a CT of the abdomen and pelvis, demonstrating a destructive lesion centered at the 11th thoracic vertebral body. The patient underwent a two-stage spine operation for T11 corpectomy and T7-L3 posterior spinal fusion...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the expression and distribution of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), nerve growth factor (NGF), and neurotrophic factor-3 (NT-3) in refractory epilepsy-associated type I focal cortical dysplasia (FCD I) and FCD IIA patients, and to explore their effects on pathogenesis of FCD I and FCD IIA. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 19 subjects who received surgery at the Department of Neurosurgery, First Affiliated Hospital, Fujian Medical University, China between June 2010 and May 2012, were enrolled in this study...

Familial melanoma-astrocytoma syndrome is a tumor predisposition syndrome caused by inactivating germline alteration of the <italic>CDKN2A</italic> tumor suppressor gene on chromosome 9p21. While some families with germline <italic>CDKN2A</italic> mutations are prone to development of just melanomas, other families develop both melanomas, astrocytomas, and occasionally other nervous-system neoplasms including peripheral nerve sheath tumors and meningiomas. The histologic spectrum of the astrocytomas that arise as part of this syndrome is not well described, nor are the additional genetic alterations that drive these astrocytomas apart from the germline <italic>CDKN2A</italic> inactivation...
