The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of ocular ultrasound in the follow-up of pseudotumor cerebri syndrome and to correlate ultrasound with clinical parameters. In a cohort study of 22 consecutive adult patients, ocular ultrasound was performed measuring optic nerve sheath diameter, optic nerve diameter, and optic disc elevation compared with symptoms referred by the patients. The patients showed increased optic nerve sheath diameter [median, 6.51 mm (interquartile range 6.13-7.10)], optic nerve diameter [3...

BACKGROUND: Cerebral edema peaks 36-72 h after moderate traumatic brain injury but thought to be uncommon after mild traumatic brain injury. Post-traumatic headache can develop 48-72 h post-injury, perhaps reflecting the developing cerebral edema. Pseudotumor cerebri can result from various causes, including cerebral edema, and is characterized by increased intracranial pressure, headache, visual, and other common symptoms. Our objective was to report a phenotypically identifiable post-traumatic headache subtype...

BACKGROUND: Adverse Reaction to Metal Debris (ARMD) is still a major reason for revision surgeries in patients with metal-on-metal (MoM) hip replacements. ARMD consists of a wide range of alterations in periprosthetic tissues, most important of which are metallosis, inflammation, pseudotumors and necrosis. Studies investigating histopathological findings and their association to implant wear or indirect measures of wear have yielded inconsistent results. Therefore, we aimed to investigate bearing surface wear volume, whole blood and synovial fluid metal ion concentrations, histopathological findings in periprosthetic tissues and their associations...

BACKGROUND: Several reports on immunoglobulin (Ig)G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) with gastrointestinal involvement (IgG4-related gastrointestinal disease; IgG4-GID) have been published, although this entity has not been fully established clinicopathologically. Thus, we carried out a multicenter survey. METHODS: Patients with possible IgG4-GID who underwent resection were collected. Histologic slides were reevaluated, and eight cases with diffuse lymphoplasmacytic infiltration but without numerous neutrophils, granulations or epithelioid granulomas were further analyzed...

A ten-year-old boy presented to the hospital with body ache and joint pains for two months and headache, vomiting, and skin rash for three days. He was drowsy and lethargic at admission. Physical examination revealed bilateral papilledema. There were no cranial nerve involvement, neuromotor deficit, or signs of meningeal irritation. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of the brain did not reveal any evidence of cerebral edema or space occupying lesion. In view of the high endemicity of brucellosis in the area, Brucella agglutination test (BAT) was done at the time of admission and was negative...

INTRODUCTION: Although appendicitis is a common disease, appendicitis concurrent with liver abscesses and sessile serrated adenoma/polyp (SSA/P) is rare. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 69-year-old man presented with symptoms of abdominal pain and fever. Computed tomography (CT) revealed multiple liver abscesses and an enlarged appendix with a pseudotumoral appearance, which suggested acute appendicitis. In the emergency operation, ileocecal resection was performed for the perforated appendicitis with an inflammatory mass in the ileocecum...

A 79-year-old male presented to our hospital with abdominal discomfort and was diagnosed with mass-forming pancreatitis. During follow-up, pancreatic stones and a hepatic mass with peripheral bile duct dilation were discovered. Serum IgG4 level was elevated, and a liver tumor biopsy revealed numerous IgG4-positive plasma cells and fibrosis. Chronic pancreatitis with the suspected involvement of autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) and IgG4-related hepatic inflammatory pseudotumor (IgG4-HIP) was diagnosed. Therefore, a steroid treatment was initiated...

The increasing demand for total hip arthroplasty (THA) in relatively young, high-demand patients has led to the use of hard-on-hard bearing surfaces. Adverse local tissue reaction/pseudotumor and elevated serum metal ion levels are commonly reported complications encountered in metal-on-metal THA, while audible articulation and rim fracture are reported in ceramic-on-ceramic THA. For this reason, ceramic-on-metal THA was implemented as an ideal hard-on-hard bearing combination. In this report, we describe a case of bilateral simultaneous ceramic-on-metal THA in a 69-year-old woman who presented 7 years postoperatively with unilateral hip pain associated with underlying pseudotumor and elevated serum cobalt and chromium ion levels...

This report describes a case of mechanically assisted crevice corrosion and secondary adverse local tissue reaction in a patient following a total hip arthroplasty, utilizing a modular neck (bi-modular) femoral component. Radiographic evaluation demonstrated a well-positioned, stable, cementless arthroplasty. Upon further evaluation, the patient had elevated serum cobalt and chromium levels, and magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a periprosthetic pseudotumor. Corrosion of both the neck-stem and head-neck junctions was suspected...

Type 1 narcolepsy (NT1) is a chronic primary disorder of hypersomnolence characterized by excessive daytime sleepiness, cataplexy, sleep paralysis, hypnagogic hallucinations and disrupted nocturnal sleep. NT1 is linked to hypothalamic hypocretin deficiency, strongly associated with Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) marker DQB1*06:02 and of probable autoimmune origin. NT1 is usually associated with increased rates of overweight and obesity, and sometimes with increases in overnight blood pressure and increased rates of hypoventilation with raised CO2 levels overnight...

PREMISE: Idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH), previously known as pseudotumor cerebri syndrome (PTC) is a serious neurological disorder that can lead to irreversible visual loss. Predominantly a disorder affecting women in reproductive years, the pediatric population is not spared. PROBLEM: In the past few years, the condition has been redefined, due to new accepted values for opening pressure in children and advances in neuroimaging. Emerging techniques in ophthalmology are being increasingly used to monitor disease in these patients...

BACKGROUND: Metal-on-metal total hip prostheses (MoM-THR) have been shown to produce hypersensitivity reactions and fluid collection (pseudotumor) by the hip as well as high blood metal ions levels (BMILs). OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) in selected body tissues around the hip of patients who underwent MoM hip replacement and to correlate to BMILs. METHODS: Sixty-one MRI hip examinations in 54 post-MoM-THR patients (18 males, 36 females, mean age 65 years) were retrospectively evaluated independently by two readers...

In this article, we present the case of a 12-year-old female child who complained of bilateral temporal and frontal headache for 2 to 3 months with nausea and vomiting. Physical examination revealed right-sided sixth cranial nerve palsy and papilledema in ophthalmoscopy. To find the cause of increased intracranial pressure, the patient underwent brain imaging and brain MRI showed no abnormality. Ultimately, lumbar puncture (LP) was performed and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure was 280 mmH2O with normal chemistry...

IgG4-related sclerosing disease, which now encompasses diverse organ-related disorders with various prior eponymic designations, may also present with solitary or multifocal lymph node enlargement. This review considers the histopathologic features of IgG4 lymphadenopathy (IgG4LAD), which has been subdivided by Cheuk & Chan into 5 microscopic subtypes. Those include variants that are typified by multicentric Castleman disease (MCD)-like changes, follicular hyperplasia, interfollicular lymphoplasmacytic proliferation, progressive transformation of germinal centers, and formation of inflammatory pseudotumor (IPT)-like lesions...

REVIEW

The incidence of tumors and pseudotumors of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) in the pediatric population is low. They are often challenging to recognize unless associated with signs and symptoms that may erroneously be interpreted as TMJ dysfunction. Tumors of the TMJ can be divided into 3 categories based on the nature and type of precursor cell involved in the tumor: benign tumors, malignant tumors, and pseudotumors. This article discusses the most common entities in these categories.
