OBJECTIVES: Deficits in psychological functioning, cognitive functioning, and sleep are frequently experienced by individuals who have survived aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (aSAH). Exercise has been shown to improve these domains; to date, it has never been explored in patients following aSAH. The aim of this exploratory study is to compare the effects of an exercise programme in this population with another patient group, and a group of healthy controls. METHODS: The present study explored the effects of 12 weeks of moderate aerobic exercise training on 15 aSAH patients, 16 meningioma patients, and 17 healthy controls...

BACKGROUND: Fronto-Temporo-Orbito-Zygomatic (FTOZ) craniotomy has progressed from its humble beginnings. Numerous variations including one piece, two piece and even three piece FTOZ craniotomies have been described. The ideal technique still remains elusive and its use remains restricted to a few specialised centres even when benefits far outweigh the surgical difficulties. OBJECTIVE: To analyse 11 cases in which single piece FTOZ craniotomy was used and to review the steps of surgery along with its advantages...

BACKGROUND: Parasagittal meningiomas (PSM) have a high incidence of peritumoral edema and unclear pathogenesis. The venous compression theory has been prposed as a pathomechanism; however, this is controversial and the various edema patterns have not been recognized. OBJECTIVE: We sought to establish the relationship between venous circulation status with different edema patterns in PSM and the neurological outcome of these different patterns. METHODS: We performed a retrospective study of 60 consecutive surgically-treated patients with PSM...

Meningiomas are typically benign solitary intracranial tumors. Atypical (World Health Organization [WHO] grade II) or malignant/anaplastic (WHO grade III) meningiomas are seldom, and distant metastases occur only in rare exceptions. We present a case of a 54-year-old male patient with atypical (WHO grade II) meningioma who underwent 1 cycle of peptide receptor radionuclide therapy. Previous imaging studies were confined to the head, but posttherapeutic whole-body Lu-DOTATATE scintigraphy revealed thoracic uptake arising from previously undetected pulmonic meningioma metastases...

Benign brain tumours may be hormone sensitive. To induce physical characteristics of the desired gender, transgender individuals often receive cross-sex hormone treatment, sometimes in higher doses than hypogonadal individuals. To date, long-term (side) effects of cross-sex hormone treatment are largely unknown. In the present retrospective chart study we aimed to compare the incidence of common benign brain tumours: meningiomas, pituitary adenomas (non-secretive and secretive), and vestibular schwannomas in transgender individuals receiving cross-sex hormone treatment, with those reported in general Dutch or European populations...

Medulloblastomas are categorized as the World Health Organization Grade IV neoplasms. Only 33 cases have been reported of extra-axial, mostly in the cerebellar pontine angle and lateral cerebellar hemisphere, medulloblastomas in the current literature. Our study showcases the first case of an extremely rare presentation of an extra-axial midline tentorial adult medulloblastoma with the dural-tail sign mimicking a meningioma. To achieve the best possible outcome, a high index of suspicion for medulloblastoma is critical especially in young patient with an atypical posterior fossa mass as treatment regimens drastically different between a medulloblastoma and a meningioma...

Central nervous system aspergillosis is rare with reported mortality rate of 13-50% involving foci in paranasal sinuses and even higher mortality rates (80-100%) in patients of immune-compromised status. Modern day imaging offers an opportunity for early diagnosis, but findings are minimal. A typical finding is that of a space occupying mass lesion with iso-hypointense signal on T1-weighted sequences and extreme hypointense appearance on T2-weighted. This results from the concentration of ferromagnetic substances (iron/zinc/magnesium/manganese) within the lesion...

Meningiomas are benign tumors origin from central nervous system. They usually involve cephalic, paravertebral soft tissues, skin and in rare cases in the ear, temporal bone, mandible, foot, lung, and mediastinum. In this case, we report an unusual case of meningioma which placed in the fourth ventricle. A 14-year-old man with seizure and headache referred to our ward. The magnetic resonance imaging reported bilateral acoustic neuroma and fourth ventricle meningioma. The patient was scheduled for total tumor resection and the histopathology revealed psammomatous type of meningioma...

Generally, meningioma is considered intracranial lesion occurring in the intradural compartment. However, meningioma can also occur and usually confined in the extradural compartment called as primary extradural meningioma (PEM). PEM represents a special subgroup of meningioma constitute about 1% of all meningioma. PEM arises outside the subdural compartment and usually contains neither connection underlying subdural structures nor extends into with subdural compartment. It is commonly located in the paranasal sinus, middle ear, rarely in the intradiploic spaces of calvarial bone such as temporal, frontal, and parietal bone and orbit but extremely uncommonly in the occipital and sphenoid bones...

Intra-abdominal metastasis (IAM) of central nervous system (CNS) tumors through ventriculoperitoneal shunt (VPS) is rare but has been previously reported (e.g., germinomas and medulloblastomas). However, there has been no previous reports in literature involving meningiomas. A case of primary rhabdoid meningioma with widespread intra-abdominal carcinomatosis after placement of a VPS in a 36-year-old man is described. The patient underwent preoperative angioembolization of the tumor, craniotomy, and surgical excision, followed by postoperative gamma knife radiosurgery...

Introduction: Intracranial meningiomas account for 30% of all primary intracranial tumors. Surgical resection remains the mainstay of the treatment for meningiomas. The magnetic resonance of intracranial meningiomas has been largely discussed in many reports of the radiological and neurosurgical literature. To date, a few studies have been attempted to differentiate the tumor characteristics of meningiomas based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies. Objective: The objective of the study is to evaluate the relationship between MRI signal characteristics of intracranial meningiomas and consistency of tumor using objective measures...

Background: The olfactory groove meningioma has always been surgically challenging. The common microscopic surgical procedures exercised involve modification of pterional or sub-frontal approaches with or without orbital osteotomies. However, we believe that orbital osteotomies are not mandatory to achieve gross total resection. Hence, this study was performed to evaluate the surgical outcomes of olfactory groove meningioma with bicoronal sub frontal approach but without orbital osteotomies...

Background: An uncommon but well-established complication of cranial irradiation is secondary neoplasm. This case presentation documents a radiation-induced malignant glioma 55 years after being diagnosed with "cerebral sarcoma," now defined as atypical meningioma. This not only represents the longest reported latency period for a patient initially receiving over 30 Gy, but also provides a valuable historical perspective of neuro-oncology. Clinical Presentation: A 58-year-old female presenting with progressive left-sided upper and lower extremity weakness with a past medical history significant for "cerebral sarcoma" was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme...
