Intracraneal hypotension headache is a well known syndrome in neurosurgery practice. In most cases cerebrospinal fluid leaks are caused by medical interventions, such as lumbar puncture, peridural anesthesia and surgical interventions on the spine. Clinical symptoms tipically show orthostatic headache that resolves in supine position, and other symptoms like neck tightness, vertigo and diplopia. RMI diagnostic confirms paquimeningeal enhancement and subdural hygromas. Conservative treatment usually includes bed resting, hydratation and administration of caffeine or glucocorticoids, resolving spontaneously in one to four months...

Osteoblastoma is a solitary, benign bone tumor that is rarely localized in the frontal sinus. It consists of hypocellular mineralized tissue that may form large masses or irregular trabeculae. A 31 year old man came to our attention with a 7 month history of diplopia, photophobia, frontal headhaches and progressive exophthalmos with proptosis of the left eye. The patient was submitted to computed tomography (CT) which allowed to appraise the extension of the lesion. The mass expanded inside the left frontal sinus and the upper ethmoidal cells invading the left orbital roof...

PURPOSE: To report clinical and imaging features of diffuse cerebral vasoconstriction and to discuss the role of non-invasive imaging modalities for the diagnosis and the follow-up. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Retrospective study including 13 consecutive patients with a diffuse cerebral vasoconstriction. Evaluation of the sensitivity of Doppler US and magnetic resonance angiography for the diagnosis. RESULTS: The diagnosis is based on the association of a thunderclap headache, declenching factors found in 50% of cases and of stenosis involving middle and small cerebra arteries...

Mg depletion is a type of Mg deficit due to a dysregulation of the Mg status. It cannot be corrected through nutritional supplementation only, but requires the most specific correction of the dysregulating mechanism. Among those, Biological Clock (BC) dysrhythmias are to be considered. The aim of this study is to analyze the clinical forms of Mg depletion with hypofunction of the Biological Clock (hBC). hBC may be due to either Primary disorders of BC [Suprachiasmatic Nuclei (SCN) and pineal gland (PG)] or Secondary with homeostatic response [reactive Photophobia (Pphi] to light neurostimulating effects [Nervous Hyper Excitability (NHE)]...

Non steroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are among the most frequently prescribed medications worldwide. These drugs are effective for the treatment of a wide spectrum of diseases: musculoskeletal disorders, headhache, fever, pain, and others. Their widespread use explains the very high incidence of intolerance; reactions range from asthma, rhinitis, to urticaria/angioedema, various skin eruptions and anaphylactic shock. The pathogenesis of intolerance is still unclear: immune-mediated reactions have been reported following the use of pyrazolone derivatives and, less commonly aspirin, anthranilic-acid derivatives and diclofenac...

CASE REPORT: A 14 year old patient showing bilateral frontal headache during the previous four months was studied. Ophtalmoscopic examination revealed presence of bilateral papilledema. Magnetic resonance angiography showed presence of thrombosis in upper sagital and transverse sinuses. Patient was treated with oral acetazolamide (500 mg a day), one month later, headhache had disappeared and papilledema decreased. DISCUSSION: Aseptic cerebral venus thrombosis is an infrecuent condition that often is cause of neurologic complications that may become severe...
