INTRODUCTION: Intramedullary cavernous angioma (ICA) is a rare lesion of the spinal cord, representing only 3% - 5% of central nervous system lesions. The coexistence of trigeminal neuralgia and refractory itch is very rarely encountered in clinical practice. To our knowledge, a report of an ICA with trigeminal neuralgia and local neuropathic itch has never been published to date. Thus, we present a very interesting case of a C2 ICA. CASE PRESENTATION: A 61-year-old female presented with right facial pain for three years, which was exacerbated by accompanying cervical pain and itch for one month...

BACKGROUND: Angiosarcoma is a rare malignant neoplasm derived from endothelial cells and its prognosis is poor because advanced angiosarcoma is resistant to standard chemotherapy, and new therapies are urgently needed. Heat shock protein 90 (HSP90) has been identified as a molecular chaperone that regulates various cancer-related proteins. Numerous clinical trials are testing the effectiveness of HSP90 inhibitors in various types of malignancies. OBJECTIVES: To investigate the role of HSP90 in the pathogenesis of angiosarcoma and whether inhibition of HSP90 may have anti-tumor activity...

A woman aged 60 years developed a Millard-Gubler syndrome after a diagnosis of a cavernous angioma in the median and paramedian areas of the pons. In this context, she presented a right VI nerve palsy, right conjugate gaze palsy, facial palsy and left hemiparesis. To improve the complete VI nerve palsy, we planned a modified transposition approach, in which procedure we made a partial transposition of vertical rectus with a silicone band that was fixated posteriorly. After the procedure, the patient gained the ability to slightly abduct the right eye...

Drug-resistant epilepsy, not associated with acute brain complications or central nervous system leukaemic involvement, can develop in patients treated for acute lymphocytic leukaemia during childhood. It has been postulated that this rare complication may be due to CNS oncological treatment neurotoxicity, related to intrathecal drugs, such as methotrexate, and brain radiotherapy. We report four patients who developed drug-resistant epilepsy sometime after receiving treatment for acute lymphocytic leukaemia...

Vascular lesions of the solid abdominal viscera may pose diagnostic and management issues. A 16-year old girl admitted to emergency department due to recurrent abdominal pain and diagnosed to have multiple vascular malformations of the spleen on imaging investigations. Littoral cell angioma was preoperative suspicion owing to no response of the vascular lesion to the propranolol. It turned out to be cavernous hemangioma on histopathology.

BACKGROUND: Among the rare intraventricular cavernomas, purely intra-aqueductal cavernomas are exceptionally rare. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 62-year-old patient presented with progressive headache, memory loss, gait instability, and urinary incontinence. Magnetic resonance imaging showed the presence of a mass lesion located in the lumen of the cerebral aqueduct, associated with triventricular hydrocephalus. CONCLUSIONS: We discuss the rationale that led us to treat hydrocephalus with neuroendoscopy, which offered the possibility to directly inspect the intra-aqueductal lesion, make the diagnosis of cavernoma, and treat symptoms resulting from hydrocephalus without increasing the risk of bleeding...

Ophthalmologic involvement in Sturge-Weber-Krabbe syndrome (SWKS) is present in 30-70% of cases and needs to be reviewed because of its impact on visual development. We report a case of a newborn for whom SSWK with ophthalmologic involvement was suspected. She had a right segmental plane angioma associated with right congenital glaucoma and suspected right pial angioma. Ophthalmic involvement in SWKS may be nonocular: iatrogenic by treatment-associated complications and central by leptomeningeal damage. Ophthalmologic involvement can occur throughout childhood and is mainly represented by glaucoma and diffuse choroidal hemangioma and then conjunctival hemangioma, retinal detachment, and iris heterochromia...

Ryan M Renacci, Roger J Bartolotta
Gorham disease (also referred to as vanishing bone disease or idiopathic massive osteolysis) is a rare skeletal condition that results in the localized replacement of bone with angiomas and fibrosis. The etiology and most effective treatment for this nonhereditary condition remain controversial in the medical literature. To our knowledge, we present the first case of post-traumatic Gorham disease that includes MR imaging (before and after radiation therapy), post-radiation CT with evidence of treatment effect (sclerosis), as well as asymptomatic bilateral renal lymphangiomata...
