INTRODUCTION: Cerebral cortical venous aneurysm also known as cerebral varix is a rare entity that usually occurs in relation to high-flow draining veins of arteriovenous fistulas, arteriovenous malformations, and venous angioma. Isolated cerebral varix is an extremely rare entity. CASE REPORT: We present a 1-year-old male with isolated cerebral varix. During follow-up, the varix thrombosed spontaneously without causing any neurological deficits. CONCLUSION: To the best of our knowledge, spontaneous asymptomatic thrombosis of an isolated cerebral varix without any clinical finding was reported for the first time in the literature...

OBJECTIVE: This study was aimed to investigate the mechanism of resveratrol on amelioration of hypoxia/ischemia (H/I)-induced brain injury. METHODS: The RT-PCR and western blot were used to detect the mRNA and protein expressions, respectively. The PC12 cell induced by OGD/R was as in vitro H/I brain injury model. The luciferase reporter assay was used to prove the relationship between Bax and miR-96, and the cell apoptosis was detected by MTT assay. The loss of MBP+ area in neonatal rats analyzed by immunohistochemistry was to evaluate the extent of brain injury...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this paper is to study invasiveness, tumor features and clinical symptoms of pediatric pituitary adenoma, and to discuss some inconclusive results in prior studies. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 34 cases of children (<20 year-old) who were pathologically diagnosed with pituitary adenoma and surgically treated from 2010 to 2017. Data of general information, clinical symptoms, invasive behaviors, surgery approaches, and tumor features were collected and analyzed...

INTRODUCTION: Posterior third ventricle ependymomas with intraaqueductal extension are relatively infrequent lesions. Its surgical management represents a formidable technical challenge and includes a wide variety of approaches. Minimally invasive surgery including the endoscopic management can play a crucial role to obtain an optimal clinical outcome. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We report the clinical outcome of an 11-year-old female patient with a 6-year history of recurrent episodes of headache and vomiting...

BACKGROUND: High-dose steroid administration is no longer recommended in the treatment of acute traumatic brain injury (TBI) as it failed to prove beneficial in improving patients' outcome. However, a masked benefit of steroid administration in TBI management was that it provided corticosteroid replacement therapy in patients with TBI-related central adrenal insufficiency. CASE PRESENTATION: We report the case of a 12-year-old boy who suffered a severe TBI from a motor vehicle accident that resulted in complete deficiency of anterior pituitary function...

INTRODUCTION: Neural tube defects (NTDs) are a group of common and severe congenital birth defects that occur during early embryonic development due to incomplete closure of the neural tube. The genetic architecture of human NTDs, including spina bifida and hydrocephalus, is highly heterogeneous, with multiple genes/loci and both gene-gene and gene-environment interactions involved. Hence, the variation in outcomes also most likely relates to a combination of the severity of different variants in multiple genes and genetic modifiers affecting the biochemical traits...

PURPOSE: Less than 0.5% of arachnoid cysts are intraventricular in origin. We review our experience with endoscopic surgery for intraventricular arachnoid cysts in children. METHODS: This is a retrospective review of children with intraventricular arachnoid cysts who underwent surgery between 2005 and 2016. Clinical notes and imaging were reviewed. RESULTS: Twenty-nine patients with endoscopically treated intraventricular arachnoid cysts were identified (M/F = 17:12; median age = 1...

In penetrating injuries, woods are known to be difficult to detect with radiological imaging studies, because the wood density are known to be extremely close to the value of air on CT. Adjustment of CT window and reconstruction of a 3D image from CT images allowed us to more accurately distinguish wood from air and to find the fragment of the wooden chopstick. It is particularly useful in transorbital penetrating injury.

PURPOSE: The topography of the anterior choroidal artery (AChA) has infrequently been delineated on neuroimages. The present study aimed to explore the cisternal segment of the AChA using magnetic resonance imaging. METHODS: A total of 50 sides of the AChA obtained from 25 patients were included in this study. A constructive interference in steady-state (CISS) sequence was performed in thin-sliced axial sections. Furthermore, the cisternal AChA and relevant neurovascular structures were observed through cadaveric dissections in two heads...

PURPOSE: High messenger RNA (mRNA) expression of the tropomyosin receptor kinase C gene (TrkC) has been associated with favorable survival in medulloblastoma patients. Untested is whether it plays a role through modulating the response to therapy or whether it might be a surrogate marker for a favorable molecular subgroup. METHODS: The medulloblastoma-derived cell line DAOY was stably transfected to overexpress TrkC (clone DAOY-TrkC) and compared to a control (clone DAOY-EV, empty vector transfected)...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the value of prenatal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in characterizing fetal intracranial space occupying lesions in comparison to prenatal ultrasound. METHODS: This retrospective study included 50 fetuses (mean age 26 years, mean gestational weeks 31 + 1 GW) with intracranial space occupying lesions, suspected by prenatal screening ultrasound. T2-weighted, T1-weighted, SSFP, and diffusion-weighted sequences of the fetal brain were obtained on a 1...

BACKGROUND: The management of concomitant scoliosis and tethered cord syndrome in the non-spina bifida pediatric population is challenging. In the present study, we evaluate the efficacy of different treatment modalities and propose a treatment plan for the management of affected patients. METHODS: A systematic literature review was conducted by querying the MEDLINE, PubMed, Cochrane, EMBASE, Scopus, and Web of Science databases for papers published between January 1996 and June 2016 and reporting on concomitant scoliosis and tethered cord...

INTRODUCTION: Medulloblastoma is the most frequent malignant brain tumour in children. Radiation-induced cavernous haemangiomas (RICHs) are a known late complication of radiation exposure, especially in young children. CASE REPORT: We present a patient who underwent subtotal resection of posterior fossa medulloblastoma with subsequent chemotherapy and radiotherapy at the age of 10 years. A new lesion in the region of the left foramen of Monro appeared 16 years later...
