Cerebral cavernous angioma or cavernoma is a benign vascular malformation, usually asymptomatic. It is infrequent and often its discovery is incidental, a so-called incidentaloma. However, these lesions can be symptomatic, causing headaches, epilepsy, cerebral hemorrhage and other neurological signs depending on the brain area involved. Frontal localization is responsible for psychiatric disorders, particularly the prefrontal region, leading to prefrontal syndrome, a condition common in all frontal lobe tumors...

Importance: The prevalence of cerebral cavernous malformation (CCM) is unknown. Case ascertainment in most previous studies was based on autopsy data or clinical convenience samples, often without detailed clinical or radiologic information. Objective: To determine the prevalence of CCM in a population-based sample of older adults. Design, Setting, and Participants: This prospective imaging study included 4721 participants aged 50 to 89 years who were enrolled between January 1, 2004, and December 15, 2015, in the Mayo Clinic Study of Aging, a longitudinal, population-based study of residents of Olmsted County, Minnesota...

Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) placement is a standard procedure for the treatment of portal hypertension complications. When this conventional approach is not feasible, alternative procedures for systemic diversion of portal blood have been proposed. A one-step interventional approach, combining minilaparotomy-assisted transmesenteric (MAT) antegrade portal recanalization and TIPS, is described in an adolescent with recurrent esophageal varice bleeding and portal cavernoma (PC). A 16-year-old girl was admitted to our Unit because of repeated bleeding episodes over a short period of time due to esophageal varices in the context of a PC...

Keyvan Mostofi, Madjid Samii
BACKGROUND: This paper presents a new management strategy explaining the process used by implantation of external ventricular drainage (EVD) and very gradual increase of intracranial pressure for treatment of acute hydrocephalus. During the last 30 years' experience in professional practice, the senior author (M.S.) discovered that there are some options of regulations between cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) production and resorption. This theory shows that minimal continuous increase of the CSF pressure as long as the patient general neurological condition is unchanged and appears as normal can lead to definitive treatment of hydrocephalus without needing to set a shunt...

RATIONALE: Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES), which diagnosis is based on clinical symptoms and radiological features, is a neurotoxic disease characterized by a set of clinical manifestations, such as seizure, headache, visual, and/or consciousness disturbance. It is the first case of PRES followed by postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) without underlying disease. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 37-year-old healthy woman had PPH after caesarean section. Six days after delivery, headache occurred suddenly, followed by episodes of clonus seizure...

BACKGROUND: Cerebral cavernous malformations (CCM) can cause intracerebral hemorrhage. The lesions themselves are frequently associated with perifocal hemosiderin deposits due to repetitive microhemorrhages. Main indications for a surgical treatment are recurrent symptomatic hemorrhages or cavernoma-related epilepsy (CRE). After surgical resection, follow-up MR-imaging is usually performed to confirm a) the complete resection of the CCM and, especially in cases of CRE, b) the complete resection of the hemosiderin deposits...

We describe the case of a 7 year old girl referred to our Diabetes Unit for hyperglycemia associated to facial dysmorphic features, intellectual disability and cerebral cavernomas, who was initially diagnosed with type 1 diabetes mellitus (positive anti-IA2 antibody and HLA DR3/DR4/DQ2). In follow up, due to the evolution of the diabetes (very good metabolic control with low insulin dose and negative IA-2 antibodies - samples analyzed in two different laboratories-), first clinical suspicion was GCK-related Maturity-Onset Diabetes of the Young (MODY 2) by persistent mild hyperglycemia in the fasting state, which was substantiated in Multiplex Ligation-dependent Probe Amplification (MLPA)...

Rapid growth in cerebral cavernous malformation is rare. We present the case of a 71 year old patient with known multiple cavernomas over many years in whom one lesion showed rapid expansion in size. Histological examination revealed co-existence of glioblastoma within the cavernoma. We review the literature for similar cases and discuss the potential mechanisms underlying this phenomenon. Review of the literature revealed four cases with known cerebral cavernous malformations that have later developed, at the same site, a high grade glioma...

OBJECTIVE: While a significant amount of experience has accumulated for awake procedures for brain tumor, epilepsy and carotid surgery, its utility for intracranial neurovascular indications remains largely undefined. Awake surgery, for select neurovascular cases, offers the advantage of precise brain mapping and robust neurological monitoring during surgery for lesions in eloquent areas, avoidance of potential hemodynamic instability, and possible faster recovery. Additionally, it opens the window for perilesional epileptogenic tissue resection with potentially less risk for iatrogenic injury...

The surgical management of deep brain tumors is often challenging due to the limitations of stereotactic needle biopsies and the morbidity associated with transcortical approaches. We present a novel microscopic navigational technique utilizing the Viewsite Brain Access System (VBAS) (Vycor Medical, Boca Raton, FL, USA) for resection of a deep parietal periventricular high-grade glioma as well as another glioma and a cavernoma with no related morbidity. The approach utilized a navigational tracker mounted on a microscope, which was set to the desired trajectory and depth...

Developmental venous anomalies (DVAs) are congenital anatomical variants of normal venous drainage of normal brain. Although DVAs are often discovered on the occasion of a seizure, their involvement in epilepsy is poorly studied. Our objective was to determine whether DVA can cause seizures, in the cases where there is no associated lesion, including no cavernoma or dysplasia. Based on clinical history, cerebral MRI, EEG recording, and (18)F-FDG PET, we report 4 patients with DVA revealed by seizures. The first patient had a convulsive seizure caused by a hemorrhagic infarction due to thrombosis of her DVA...

The authors report a case of a developmentally normal child with a congenital complex torcular dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF) who later, in his teenage years, developed several vermian cavernomas within a large cerebellar developmental venous anomaly (DVA). The patient had initially presented with an abnormally large head circumference but no neurological deficits. He underwent several partial embolization procedures in an attempt to decrease the blood supply of the fistula over the course of 8 years. Nine years following initial presentation, he presented with a fourth ventricular hemorrhage, due to development of a new vermian cavernoma adjacent to a previously known vermian DVA and suffered subsequent mild left-sided hemiataxia from which he later recovered...

Drug-induced burst suppression (DIBS) is bihemispheric and bisymmetric in adults and older children. However, asymmetric DIBS may occur if a pathological process is affecting one hemisphere only or both hemispheres disproportionately. The usual suspect is a destructive lesion; an irritative or epileptogenic lesion is usually not invoked to explain DIBS asymmetry. We report the case of a 66-year-old woman with new-onset seizures who was found to have a hemorrhagic cavernoma and periodic lateralized epileptiform discharges (PLEDs) in the right temporal region...

BACKGROUND: Spontaneous intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) is associated with high rates of morbidity and mortality despite critical care and other advances. An important step in clinical management is to confirm/rule out an underlying vascular lesion, which influences further treatment, potential for further bleeding, and prognosis. Our aim is to compare demographic and clinical characteristics between IVH patients with and without an underlying vascular lesion, and among cohorts with different vascular lesions...

BACKGROUND: Intraoperative electrophysiology is increasingly used for various lesion resections, both in adult and pediatric brain surgery. Subcortical mapping is often used in adult surgery when lesions lie in proximity to the corticospinal tract (CST). We describe a novel technique of continuous subcortical mapping using an electrified Cavitron UltraSonic Aspirator (CUSA) in children with supratentorial lesions. METHODS: We evaluated the method of subcortical mapping using a CUSA as a stimulation probe...
