Objective: Quantitative sensorial tests (QST) are used for evaluating specific sensorial nerve function. In this study, QST and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings are compared in lumbar disc herniation patients, and the accuracy of QST data was investigated. Material and Methods: Sixty-four patients between 18 and 70 years of age suffering from radicular pain with positive Lasegue's test were included in this study. Specific criteria included complaints due to L5 discopathy...

BACKGROUND: Myopericytomas are benign vascular tumors composed of perivascular myoid cells that usually arise in superficial soft tissues of the extremities. METHODS: We here report on 5 cases of myopericytoma, malignant myopericytoma, and glomangiopericytoma arising from subcutaneous, paraspinal, orbital, and sellar regions that secondarily involved the nervous system. Patients experienced orbital swelling, progressing neuropathic pain, dermatoma specific pain, and oculomotor paresis...

BACKGROUND: Fibromyalgia is a condition characterized by widespread chronic pain. Due to the high prevalence and high costs, it has a substantial burden on society. Treatment results are diverse and only help a small subset of patients. C2 nerve field stimulation, aka occipital nerve stimulation, is helpful and a minimally invasive treatment for primary headache syndromes. Small C2 pilot studies seem to be beneficial in fibromyalgia. METHODS: Forty patients were implanted with a subcutaneous electrode in the C2 dermatoma as part of a prospective, double-blind, randomized, controlled cross-over study followed by an open label follow up period of 6 months...

AIM: The aim of this study was to compare the complication rate of traditional minimally invasive anterior with the new minimally invasive lateral trans-psoatic retroperitoneal approaches to the intervertebral discs at levels T12-L5. METHODS: A review of all cases of minimally invasive anterior (ALIF) and lateral (XLIF) intervertebral disc surgery at levels T12-L5, treated at the Department of Neurosurgery from January 1996 to September 2011. The ALIF group consisted of 120 and the XLIF group consisted of 88 patients...

OBJECTIVE: Femoral Nerve Block (FNB) has been proposed for femoral fracture analgesia in a prehospital setting. METHODS: Descriptive case-series survey. All suspected femoral fractures that were managed by our extrahospital service and had a femoral block were prospectively included. The physician was free to choose any block technique (paravascular femoral block [BFPV], nerve stimulation femoral block [BFNS], or fascia iliaca block [BFI]), as well as local anesthetic mixture and volume...

Thirty-five patients (ASA II-III) aged 12 to 17 years, diagnosed as having osteogenic sarcoma and Ewing's sarcoma localizing in the femur and tibia, were examined. Surgery was performed as sectoral resection of the affected bone along with knee joint endoprosthesis. Surgical intervention was made under combined spinal and epidural anesthesia (CSEA) with sedation, by using the methods for exact dosing of propofol (6-4 mg/kg x h). During intervention, a child's respiration remains is kept spontaneous with oxygen insufflation through a nasal catheter...

UNLABELLED: Varicella can be prevented by vaccination using the live-attenuated Oka vaccine strain of varicella zoster virus (VZV). Only mild breakthrough disease has been reported in seronegative vaccinees when exposed to the wild-type virus. The latent varicella vaccine virus has rarely caused herpes zoster in childhood and adolescence. We report a healthy 2-year-old girl who developed an impressive herpes zoster infection 16 months after vaccination, localised in three cervical dermatoma...

Toxocara canis causes the visceral larva migrans syndrome in which central nervous involvement is rare. We report the case of a 40-year-old woman presenting with a subacute weakness of the right leg and dysaesthesiae in the right Th8-Th10 dermatomas. Spinal magnetic resonance imaging examination showed abnormal hyperintensity within the spinal cord. Cerebrospinal fluid analysis revealed eosinophilic pleocytosis. Antibody titres to Toxocara canis were higher in the cerebrospinal fluid than in the serum. Treatment using mebendazole led to a complete clinical recovery, normalization of cerebrospinal fluid parameters and improvement in spinal magnetic resonance imaging abnormalities...

Surgical closure of leg ulcers has to be preceded by treatment of their etiologies in order to avoid recurrences. Best coverage technique is achieved with the use of a meshed split thickness skin graft, harvested with a dermatoma. Skin graft take depends on the vascular quality of the recipient bed, on the technique used and also on the post-operative care.

We have reviewed 23 cases of varicella-zoster virus infection of the central nervous system in patients with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, previously reported in the literature, including 11 from our own series. This allowed us to identify 5 clinico-pathological patterns which could occur simultaneously. In most cases, viral proteins or viral genome were identified using immunocytochemistry or in situ hybridization. Multifocal encephalitis involves predominantly the white matter and is likely to be due to haematogenous spread of the infection...

OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE: Intradural or intraradicular herniation of a lumbar disc is a rare complication of disc disease. The mechanism of the tearing of the dura mater by a herniated disc is not known with certainty. Only six cases of intraradicular disc herniation have been reported. By reporting the seventh case of this rare neurosurgical entity, we emphasize its importance and review the literature on intraradicular disc herniation. CLINICAL PRESENTATION: A 41-year-old man was admitted with a 3-year history of low back pain and sciatica...

We present the incidence, diagnosis and clinical picture of the primary orbital tumors in children. They were treated in ENT Clinic CM UJ in Kraków between 1981-1990 years. Discovered was preponderance of primary non malignant tumors. The most frequently encountered tumors were dermatomas, angiomas and among the malignant tumors-rhabdomyosarcoma.

In 1243 patients after renal transplantation, 39 malignant tumours were detected in 37 patients. The average latency period between transplantation and tumour disease was 72 months. Tumours included 8 malignant lymphomas, 7 dermatomas and 24 visceral tumours. The patients who developed a tumour had received fewer blood transfusions before transplantation than a tumour-free control group of 60 patients with renal transplants. Rejection crises occurred in a significantly smaller number of tumour patients compared with the control group...

As a rule, damage to segmental afferent nerves by trauma is accompanied with local impairment of sympathic functions. Standardized quantification of subjective items concerning the deficit of sensibility is quite problematical. Investigation by electrophysiological means yield not more than qualitative issues. In contrast, changes of sympathetic status and reaction of dependent dermatomas are quantitatively measurable by thermography. -26 patients with unilateral mandibular fractures complained of different posttraumatic or postoperative sensible impairment of the third branch of the trigeminal nerve...

A rare case of Guillain-Barré syndrome associated with herpes zoster developed on the 7th day of eruption in the right dermatoma DII-III in a man of 51 years old. The peculiarities of the symptoms, current status, liquor changes have been analysed basing on the data from foreign literature on 24 cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome (polyradiculoneuritis) associated with herpes zoster.

We report on a 45-year-old male patient with a 15-years history of partly excoriated and inflamed lesions of verruccous-papular character, arranged in a linear naevoid fashion on the extensor side of the right arm and shoulder. The lesions were not related to a dermatoma but seemed to be located in the Blaschko's lines. On histology an epidermal invagination was found, conspicuously arranged over proliferating vellus hair follicles, which were increased in number as in a hamartoma. The rete ridges were directed towards early anagens of the vellus hairs with consecutive crateriform invagination of the epidermis with parakeratosis and basophilic debris on the innermost layer of the invagination...

The indication and surgical procedure of mesh skin grafting with mesh graft dermatoma II after Tanner-Vanderput concerning avoidable failures are shown. In order to avoid therapeutic complications of skin grafting in extremities it is of great importance to have a well granulating transplantation ground and to spread out the mesh graft equally. Even in regions of joints good results can be achieved.
