endocranial hypertensive syndrome

Ionna Fragkandrea, John Alexander Nixon, Paraskevi Panagopoulou
Although cancer in children is rare, it is the second most common cause of childhood mortality in developed countries. It often presents with nonspecific symptoms similar to those of benign conditions, leading to delays in the diagnosis and initiation of appropriate treatment. Primary care physicians should have a raised index of suspicion and explore the possibility of cancer in children who have worrisome or persisting signs and symptoms. Red flag signs for leukemia or lymphoma include unexplained and protracted pallor, malaise, fever, anorexia, weight loss, lymphadenopathy, hemorrhagic diathesis, and hepatosplenomegaly...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of the present study was to retrospectively assess the prevalence of neurological involvement and the clinical patterns of presentation in a monocentric cohort of patients with BD, who have been followed in the last twenty years at our centre. METHODS: One hundred and seventeen patients were retrospectively studied. The male/female ratio was 1.6:1, with a mean disease duration of 11±5 years. Their mean age was 42±9 years (min:18, max:77), while the mean age at disease onset was 25±4 years (min:10, max:58)...

OBJECTIVE: To present our experience in the treatment of child optic pathway gliomas in the last 25 years. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Seventeen children under 10 years of age have been analyzed and assessed from clinic, ophthalmologic, endocrinologic, neurological, neuropathologic, and imaginologic points of view. RESULTS: Predominance of female patients, 10 girls and 7 boys between 6 and 122 months old; mean age was 3 years and 8 months. The most frequent symptoms have been ophthalmologic and visual alterations in all 17 patients, endocrine alterations in 10, and neurological signs in 6...

INTRODUCTION: Neurocysticercosis (NCC) in children is a clinical entity that was believed to be infrequent but, as methods of diagnosis by means of imaging techniques and immunological tests have improved, it has become possible to confirm more cases. This disease has been reported as being most prevalent in developing countries but over the past few years there has also been an increase in the incidence in developed countries. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We examined the clinical records of paediatric patients admitted to the Hospital Cayetano Heredia, in Lima, Peru, between 1993 and 1998...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE: The endocranial hypertension syndrome is one of the commonest and most feared neurological complications in clinical practice. This encourages its continued study, and is the subject of this review. DEVELOPMENT: Endocranial hypertension is the common pathway for the presentation of many neurological and non neurological disorders. An increase in the volume of one or more intracranial structures causes secondary lesions of the brain and even the death of the patient, although this may frequently be avoided by prompt recognition and suitable action by the doctor involved...

AIMS AND BACKGROUND: Radiation therapy holds a fundamental role in oncological emergencies such as superior vena cava syndrome, spinal cord compression and endocranial hypertension. The purpose of our study was, by comparing schedules of treatment, to confirm the efficacy of hypofractionated radiation therapy. METHODS: From January 1994 to December 1998, 43 patients with superior vena cava syndrome, 37 patients with metastatic spinal cord compression and 108 patients with endocranial hypertension secondary to metastasis were treated at our institution...

INTRODUCTION: Primary tumours of the CNS form 20% of the neoplasias seen in children. They are the second commonest type of cancer seen in childhood, after leukemia. A significant proportion of paediatric cerebral tumours (> 50%) are intratentorial. OBJECTIVE: To find the frequency and clinicopathological behavior of posterior fossa tumours in children seen at our hospital. PATIENTS AND METHODS: From the hospital records, a descriptive, retrospective study was made of 112 children with tumours of the posterior fossa who were attended at the Institute of Neurology and Neurosurgery between January 1980 and December 1997...

Benign endocranial hypertension (BEH) is defined as a syndrome the clinical symptomatology of which includes elevated intracranial pressure without signs of focal injury of the brain. There were 55 BEH patients (52 female and 3 male patients). Changes of endocrine status were found to prevail among etiological factors, viz. pregnancy, obesity, galactorrhea-amenorrhea, hypothyrosis, ingestion of oral contraceptives. All the patients showed signs of intracranial hypertension (headache, vomit, conjested optical disks)...

A group of patients with empty sella syndrome (ESS) and visual field defect with or without visual loss has been examined with standardized echography and ophthalmodynamometric examination. The optic nerve thickness has been evaluated with standardized echography; the pressure of the central retina artery has been evaluated with ophthalmodynamometric examination with or without compression on the external carotid. Our results point out two different pathogeneses in the ESS: vascular defects or irregular endocranial hypertension...

Headache either as an isolated syndrome or as part of a symptomatic grouping is a frequent reason for medical consultation or hospitalization during childhood and adolescence. We review 94 clinical histories of patients between three and thirteen years of age. Headache was the reason for being hospitalized in all cases. Our aim was to assess its incidence rate, epidemiology, clinical characteristics and etiology in addition to evaluating as to whether complementary examinations carried out during hospitalization were worthwhile...

The authors deal with a case, they have observed, of aneurysm of the anterior communicating artery whose clinical picture opened with an endocranial hypertension syndrome, associated with paresis of both sursumvergence and convergence (Parinaud's syndrome). Carefully analyzing literature, the authors didn't find other cases of aneurysms of intracranial anterior circulus associated with the above mentioned syndrome. They lastly propose pathogenic hypotheses justifying this association.

Polycythemic syndromes, particularly (Polycythemia vera), often causes neurological symptoms, that sometimes are the first in the clinic. The authors analyze the various neurological symptoms that more frequently occur and their probable pathogenesis. The clinical case taken into consideration by the authors showed the same symptoms of the endocranial hypertension.

UNLABELLED: The therapeutic criteria according to tomographic findings are reviewed. 10 children, 6 male and 4 female, with porencephalic congenital cysts were studied. Early symptoms began within the first 6 months of life in 9 cases, and at the age of 5 years in 1. The most frequent symptoms were: seizures in 3; motor deficit in 5; retarded psychomotor development in 7; endocranial hypertension syndrome in 7; symmetric macrocrania in 7; paresis of the motor ocular nerves in 4. Preoperative studies: X-ray films-1 each patient-showed diastasis of sutures in 6 and cranial asymmetry in 2...

Cerebral pseudotumour is an endocranial hypertensive syndrome marked by the absence of focal neurological signs, the integrity of neuroradiological tests and an increased liquor pressure with normal composition of the liquor itself. It is normally self-limiting but if endocranial hypertension persists it may severely affect sight. It may be idiopathic or secondary to a number of conditions. The authors report a case of cerebral pseudotumour following the suspension of corticosteroid treatment. The pathology resolved rapidly following lumbar puncture...

The case of a Cuban child with AIDS acquired by perinatal transmission is reported. Thirteen days after birth, the child had chronic diarrhoeas affecting its pondostatural development. It was hospitalized many times due to recurrent respiratory processes, in one of which Pneumocystis carinii was detected. Oral candidiasis, cryptosporidiosis and intestinal amebiasis in faeces were also diagnosed. It died with generalized tonic-clonic convulsions and bradypnea. At autopsy, the direct death cause was endocranial hypertension due to unspecific sub-acute viral meningitis...
