Isolated wrist drop is very unusual clinical presentation due to cerebral stroke. It is highly confused with peripheral neuropathy. However, timely detection of acute stroke as one of the causes of wrist drop is necessary as it changes the line of treatment and prognosis significantly. Here we are presenting a 62 year-old diabetic and hypertensive male patient who came with acute onset weakness of right hand. Initial Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain showed hyperacute infarct in the splenium of corpus callosum...

A 45-year-old female without any past or family history of psychiatric illness presented to the emergency department with complaints of abnormal behavior, irrelevant talking, restlessness, episodic crying, and decreased sleep of 2-day duration. On detailed interview, the attendants gave a history of an intermittent headache of 6-month duration and hearing impairment of 4-month duration. On investigation, her cerebrospinal fluid was reactive, and brucella titers were positive. She received appropriate treatment for 6 months and a short course of antipsychotics...

Common carotid artery (CCA) usually does not have any branches in the neck and divides into internal and external carotid artery. Superior thyroid and lingual artery (commonly called as thyro lingual trunk) are the branches of external carotid artery. We report a case of rare origin of thyrolingual trunk from the CCA in a case of ruptured intracranial aneurysm.

A 28-year-old male patient presented to us with bilateral frontal hyperostosis associated with a small unilateral frontal intracranial meningioma. He underwent successful excision of the involved bone and repair of the large cranial defect using a titanium mesh. Histological examination revealed tumor infiltration of the overlying bone. Surgical challenges in the management of such a case are also discussed.

We report a case of orbital tuberculosis (OTB) with intracranial extension without active tuberculosis in the rest of the body organs or a history of tuberculosis infection. A 29-year-male patient presented with left-sided painful periorbital swelling with pus discharging sinus and visual impairment. Orbital computed tomography revealed contrast enhancing cystic mass lesion in the left orbit with erosion of the lateral and superior orbital wall with intracranial extension. After the failure of 3 weeks' course of oral antibiotics, the patient underwent left lateral orbitotomy, pus was drained out, and granulation tissues were excised...

Intramedullary spinal teratomas are rare. We report a case in a 40-year-male who presented with progressive weakness over the right side of the body and gait imbalance. He had dermal sinus with hair patch over nape of the neck. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed cervical (C4-C7) intramedullary tumor with dermal sinus tract. C3-C7 laminectomy was performed and tumor excised along with the sinus tract. Histopathological examination revealed mature cystic teratoma. Gait ataxia was improved immediately while near complete recovery in motor power was achieved over a period of 2-3 weeks...

In children, strangulation is a fatal injury due to asphyxia, a terminal event of partial or complete hanging. Homemade hammocks are routinely used as a cradle which is potentially dangerous. We are hereby reporting a 12-year-old female with accidental strangulation occurring as a result of swinging on a hammock made of saree and also in a view to educate the public about the hazards of using homemade hammocks.

Alcohol intoxication is a common risk factor of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and carries a significant health-care burden on underserved patients. Patients with chronic alcohol use may suffer a spectrum of bleeding diatheses from hepatic dysfunction not well studied in the context of TBI. A feared sequela of TBI is the development of coagulopathy resulting in worsened intracranial bleeding. We report the clinical course of an intoxicated patient found down with blunt head trauma and concurrent alcoholic cirrhosis who was awake and responsive in the field...

We report the case of a 30-year-old human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive HIV patient who was poorly followed. She was admitted on November 30, 2017, for the management of febrile encephalitis syndrome with motor deficit of the left hemicorps and generalized seizures. In biology, we found a nonspecific inflammatory syndrome. The cerebral imaging without and with injection found a cystic formation multilobed right fronto-parietal of approximately 83 mm × 62 mm, the presence of an annular calcification of approximately 8 mm with a commitment under falcator, and a contralateral ventricle dilation...

Encephaloceles are rare embryological mesenchymal developmental anomalies resulting from inappropriate ossification in the skull through which herniate the intracranial contents of the sac. Occipital encephaloceles are described as giant when they are larger than the head from which they arise, and they pose a great surgical challenge. Herein, we present a case of a giant occipital encephalocele in a neonate with Chiari malformation Type 3 to highlight the problems encountered in its management and the outcome of the surgery...

Wilson's disease is an autosomal recessive disease of abnormal copper metabolism. Psychosis is a rare manifestation of Wilson's disease. Few cases of misdiagnosing Wilson's disease as an etiology of psychosis were reported in the literature. We report a case of a 42-year-old patient, who was diagnosed with a schizoaffective disorder and treated with antipsychotics for 3 years with no significant improvement. On reevaluation, we the patient was diagnosed to have Wilson's disease. The patient's symptoms improved significantly with chelation therapy...

A 21-year-old woman presented with left hemiparesis, fever, dyspnea, tachycardia, and pericardial rub on examination. She was provisionally diagnosed with infective endocarditis and received the final diagnosis of the primary pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) and extra PTB (EPTB) with pericardial effusion and thoracic lymphadenitis. Left hemiparesis due to a pontine infarct was attributed to TB with neurovasculitis. The diagnosis was supported by findings on imaging studies such as echocardiography, computed tomography of the thorax, and magnetic resonance imaging of the brain...

Although transient neurological deficits in Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) have been acknowledged for many years, the underlying pathogenesis still constitutes a major topic of discussion. Here, we present the case of a 10-year-old boy with SWS presenting with a progressive clinically mimicking right middle cerebral artery syndrome. Cranial magnetic resonance imaging showed unremarkable findings except extensive right hemisphere leptomeningeal angiomas. Antiepileptic drug (AED) treatments provided recovery of the patient, and concurrently recorded electroencephalography (EEG) revealed delta slowing of the lesional hemisphere in the acute period...

Background: Multiple, primary brain tumors with different histological types occurring in the same patient are extremely rare. Several hypotheses have been proposed, and the pathophysiology of coexisting tumors has long been debated; however, due to low incidence, standard practices for this scenario are still inconclusive. Case Description: The authors describe 6 cases of coexisting tumors. By conducting a literature research focused on the computed tomography (CT) era and patients without prior radiation or phakomatosis...

Background: The aim of the study is to correlate the surgical outcome with radiological changes in patients with Chiari I malformation (CMI) with syrinx. We also compared long-term functional and radiographic outcome in CM1 patients treated with posterior fossa decompression (PFD) with or without duroplasty. Patients and Methods: From December 2013 to October 2015, 22 patients who underwent surgery with the diagnosis of CMI and syrinx were included in the study...
