BACKGROUND: Results from surgical series of tuberculum and planum sphenoidale meningiomas tends to be heterogeneous. Sekhar-Mortazavi tumor classification system has been recently proposed in order to predict the surgical risk and outcome. METHOD: We retrospectively reviewed a consecutive series of tuberculum and planum sphenoidale meningioma operated at our institution between 2009 and 2016. Sekhar-Mortazavi tumor classification was applied to classify these tumors and evaluate the outcome...

INTRODUCTION: Schwannomas involving the occulomotor cranial nerves  (CNs; III, IV and VI), can be disabling, due to the associated diplopia and decreased quality of life and are extremely rare. We evaluated the role of Gamma Knife surgery (GKS) in these cases. METHODS: Five patients with CN IV and VI schwannomas (three and two, respectively) were treated in Lausanne University Hospital between 2010 and 2015. Four benefitted from upfront GKS and one from a combined approach (planned subtotal resection followed by GKS), due to a large preoperative tumour volume (size, 3 × 2 × 2...

BACKGROUND: Chylomicron retention disease (CMRD), a rare genetic hypocholesterolemia, results in neuro-ophtalmologic damages, which can be prevented by high doses of vitamin E during infancy. In these patients, plasma vitamin E concentration is significantly reduced due to defects of chylomicron secretion. Vitamin E in adipose tissue (AT) and red blood cells (RBC) have been proposed as potential relevant biomarkers of vitamin E status but no reference values in children are available...

Here, we present a case of tonic pupil associated with occult breast cancer as a paraneoplastic neuro-ophthalmology syndrome. A 45-year-old woman developed progressive photophobia and blurred vision due to unilateral Adie's tonic pupil. Magnetic resonance image of her brain and neurological examination (including deep tendon reflexes) were normal at first visit. Follow-up examinations performed by ophthalmologist every 6 month without any change in her condition. After 2 years, patient discovered a mass in her breast which identified to be malignant after diagnostic procedures...

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has revolutionised ophthalmology. Due to modern instruments with extremely high resolution there are more and more applications also in neuro-ophthalmological disorders. This review gives an overview on typical changes in OCT for the following diseases: autosomal dominant optic atrophy, Leber hereditary optic neuropathy, toxic, traumatic and compressive optic neuropathy, optic nerve drusen, anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy, optic disc pit, papilledema, optic neuritis (isolated or associated with multiple sclerosis or neuromyelitis optica), neurodegenerative diseases and hereditary retinal diseases...

Myasthenia Gravis is an organ-specific autoimmune disorder generaly thought to be caused by an antibody-mediated attack against the skeletal muscle nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (AChR) at the neuromuscular junction. Not infrequently there may be other diseases accompanying myasthenia, that can give different neuro-ophtalmological manifestations or neurological syndromes with autoimmune substrate. By these autoimmmune diseases we note:Autoimmune thyroiditis, Systemic lupus erythematous, Dermatomyositis, i...

Spatial relationship perception (SRP), defined as the function able to detect the difference between the perceived extent of a shape along the x/y cardinal coordinates, has been investigated in 42 eyes of 21 emmetropic subjects by means of a psychophysical test conceived on purpose. Aiming to the highest sensibility and since curvature detection is reckoned as an hyperacuity, elliptical stimuli have been chosen to measure the spatial relationship anisotropy (SRA) in the visual system. Observers turned out to be able to detect curvature differences along the elliptical contour as low as 33...

BACKGROUND: Primary involvement of the sphenoid sinus occurs in 2% of all paranasal sinus tumors and is associated with dismal prognosis. Optimal management remains debatable. METHODS: A total of 23 patients were treated for a primary cancer of the sphenoid sinus from 1988 to 2004. Charts were reviewed for patient-, tumor-, and treatment-related parameters. Univariate and multivariate analyses were conducted to identify prognostic factors for locoregional control and survival...

BACKGROUND: The treatment of choice for acromegaly is surgery that, according to the literature, is curative in 91% of pituitary microadenomas and 73% of macroadenomas. AIM: To report the results of surgical treatment in 53 patients with acromegaly. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective review of medical records of all patients with acromegaly, operated between 1984 and 2004. When necessary, patients were contacted by telephone to complete information or to perform biochemical or imaging studies...

The aim of this study was to evaluate whether VEP is sensitive to optic neuritis (ON) when compared with triple dose orbital MRI. Twenty-four relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS) patients were included in the study. Group I (n = 10) patients with acute ON, Group II (n = 8): patients presenting with a current relapse who had the history of ON in the previous relapses. Group III (n = 6): patients presenting with a current relapse but with no history of ON. Neuro-ophtalmological evaluation. VEP investigation and orbital MRI with triple dose (0...

Terson syndrome or vitreal hemorrhage associated with subdural hemorrhage is a rare condition. The goal of our work through a retrospective series of 3 cases (4 eyes) is to study clinical characteristics as well as adequate moment of surgery. All our patients had unilateral or bilateral visual impairement secondary to cerebral lesion. Ophtalmologic exam showed an intravitreal hemorrhage. Two of our patients were operated by vitrectomy, the third case had a spontaneous resorption of intravitreal hemorrhage and no surgery was performed...

The authors present a retrospective study of a series of eighteen patients with acromegaly diagnosed, treated and followed by the Endocrinology and Neurosurgery Services of the Hospital Universitário Clementino Fraga Filho of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. The average age of the patients was 43.2% years (varying between 15 and 63). Initial complaints were mainly due to somatic alterations in 83.33%; half the cases had manifestations secondary to tumor compression and 53.33% had neuro-ophtalmological alterations...

Isolated inflammatory sphenoid sinusitis, associated with complications are rare. Authors report 23 cases in 8 years. The left sphenoid is the most often involved, in 50 years or more old females. Neurological complications are the most frequent (75% of the cases): isolated headache, neuro-ophtalmologic paralysis, meningitis, before respiratory complications (20%). A bacteriological etiology was found in 60% of the cases, and a fungal etiology in 25%. The treatment is based on a large endoscopic marsupialization of the sphenoid...
