PURPOSE: We describe the first case of minimally invasive corneal neurotization with the great auricular nerve (GAN) to treat unilateral neurotrophic keratopathy. We assessed corneal sensation and reinnervation by esthesiometry and confocal microscopy over 12 months of follow-up, and we provide a detailed description of the surgical technique. METHODS: Corneal neurotization was successfully achieved with the ipsilateral GAN in a 58-year-old woman. Cochet-Bonnet esthesiometry and in vivo confocal microscopy were performed before and after corneal neurotization, to monitor the recovery of corneal sensation and corneal reinnervation by subbasal nerve fibers...

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) have been found in various cancers and were discussed to influence tumor biology. Cells fulfilling the complete MSC criteria, including surface marker expression (CD73, CD90, CD105) and tri-lineage differentiation, have been isolated solely from a low percentage of high-grade meningiomas. In contrast, pure co-expression of the surface-markers was relatively frequent, raising the question for an additional role of these membrane proteins in meningiomas. Therefore, here we analyzed the expression of CD73, CD90 and CD105 in a series of meningiomas of all grades...

The frontotempotal-orbitozygomatic craniotomy (FTOZ) is a standard approach for large sphenoid wing meningiomas (SWMs). Nevertheless, resection of these tumors is not without ophthalmologic risks. This series presents two patients with acute postoperative restrictive strabismus following tumor resection and orbital wall reconstruction. Forced duction testing and postoperative imaging revealed impingement of the lateral rectus muscle caused by an alloplastic implant and/or residual bone, prompting immediate orbitotomy and restoration of normal extraocular muscle function...

High sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) can be important prognostic indicators of brain tumor patients. We investigated the association of circulating IL-6 and hsCRP concentrations with discharge outcomes and survival of glioma and meningioma patients. One-hundred and sixty-three (115 women; median age 57 years) patients admitted for meningioma (n = 94), high-grade glioma (n = 48) and low-grade glioma (n = 21) surgery were enrolled in this prospective cohort study. Serum samples were collected within 24 h of admission...

TMPRSS3 (Trans-membrane Serine Protease 3) is a type II trans-membrane serine protease that has proteolytic activity essential for hearing. Mutations in the gene cause non-syndromic autosomal recessive deafness (DFNB8/10) in humans. Knowledge about its cellular distribution in the human inner ear may increase our understanding of its physiological role and involvement in deafness, ultimately leading to therapeutic interventions. In this study, we used super-resolution structured illumination microscopy for the first time together with transmission electron microscopy to localize the TMPRSS3 protein in the human organ of Corti...

Background: Primary spinal cord tumors are not as frequently encountered as their cranial counterparts. They could present in such an indolent manner that requires a reasonable index of suspicion for their diagnosis to be considered. Objective: The objective of this study is to analyze the incidence and pattern of primary spinal cord and appendage neoplasms in patients surgically treated in our institution over a decade of practice. Materials and Methods: A retrospective review of clinical, radiological, and histopathology profiles of patients surgically treated for primary spinal cord tumor from 2006 to 2016 was carried out...

Among spinal tumors that occur intradurally, meningiomas, nerve sheath tumors, ependymomas, and astrocytomas are the most common. While a spinal MRI is the state of the art to diagnose intradural spinal tumors, in some cases CT scans, angiography, CSF analyses, and neurophysiological examination can be valuable. The management of these lesions depends not only on the histopathological diagnosis but also on the clinical presentation and the anatomical location, allowing either radical resection as with most extramedullary lesions or less invasive strategies as with intramedullary lesions...

BACKGROUND: Abscess co-existing within a brain tumor is a rare entity. Case reports in literature primarily consist of sellar pathology and parenchymal lesions including meningioma, glioma, and metastases. We report a case of glioblastoma with an intra-tumoral abscess in a middle-aged lady with no prior invasive procedure or systemic focus of infection. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 45-year old lady presented with new onset generalized seizures and rapidly progressive left hemiparesis...

BACKGROUND: Neoplasms rarely present during pregnancy. However, increase in plasma volume, hormone release induced growth, and tumor hypervascularity, can cause rapid symptoms. These range from not requiring intervention to necessitating emergent operations. OBJECTIVE: We describe an algorithm for the management of symptomatic neoplasm in the obstetric population, and provide recommendations regarding surgical indications and timing. METHODS: Patients who presented to a skull base clinic from 2010-2016 at large tertiary care hospital were reviewed to identify patients who presented with a skull base tumor during pregnancy...

In this study we report an uncommon endoscopic endonasal image of an atrophic optic nerve as seen after surgical removal of a suprasellar meningioma. The peculiarity of this case is the long-lasting underestimated ocular symptomatology of the patient who reported a 15-year history of impairment of vision on her left eye. After making serendipitously the diagnosis of a suprasellar mass, an endoscopic endonasal surgery was performed and, at the end of tumor removal, the impressive left optic nerve atrophy due to enduring local compression was visualized...

Female gender, contraceptives, and menopausal hormone replacement treatments containing progesterone analogues associate with higher risk of meningiomas yet with lower risk of gliomas. Progesterone receptor (PR) expression and mifepristone treatment was highly discussed for meningiomas. However, much less is known in regard to progesterone actions in gliomas despite PR expression strongly correlates with their grade. Meningiomas and gliomas may grow faster during gestation; but paradoxically, parousity reduces lifetime risk of gliomas which can be explained with dichotomous cell growth-stimulating and inhibitory actions of progesterone at low versus high levels...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopy is increasingly being used for minimal invasiveness and panoramic visualization, with unclear efficacy and safety among spinal intradural lesions. OBJECTIVE: To compare micro-endoscopic and pure-endoscopic surgery for spinal intradural lesions. METHODS: Spinal intradural lesions operated by us using endoscopic/access ports were categorized 'micro-endoscopic' (predominant microscope use), or 'pure-endoscopic' (standalone endoscopy) surgery, and studied with respect to clinico-radiological features, techniques, peri-operative course, histopathology, clinical and radiological outcome at minimum of 3 months...

BACKGROUND: The advantages of 5-aminolevulinacid (5-ALA)-induced fluorescence-guided surgery in meningiomas are increasingly discussed. In this context, despite detectable tumor tissue in histopathologial analyses, no fluorescence was shown at the dura tail using the standard operating microscope. Thus, 5-ALA metabolism in this surgically important site remains unknown but needs to be elucidated when further evaluating indications of fluorescence-guided surgery in meningiomas. METHOD: We here present the spatially resolved identification of protoporphyrin IX (PpIX) in sphenoid ridge meningioma cryosections from a patient who underwent fluorescence-guided microsurgery using molecular imaging analysis by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization tandem mass spectrometry (MALDI-MS/MS)...

Background: The safety of systemic thrombolysis in patients with intracranial tumor and cavernoma are unknown. So far evidence is limited to a number of case reports and few case series or unspecified data based on population-based analysis. Our aim was to comprehend the risk of systemic thrombolysis in these patients. Methods: Patients with additional evidence of intracranial tumor or cavernoma who received IV tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) treatment at our comprehensive stroke center over a period of 7 years were identified in our stroke database and compared to the same number of matched control subjects without any evidence of intracranial tumor and cavernoma...
