Chiari type I malformation with cervicothoracic syringomyelia although very common in clinical practice usually in children can progress slowly and mimic muscular dystrophies in adulthood. We present a rare adult case of Chiari type I malformation with cervicothoracic syringomyelia subterfuge as Flail arm syndrome. A 44-year-old man was diagnosed with congenital type I Chiari malformation with cervicothoracic syringomyelia about 21 years ago without surgery. His health status deteriorated over the years until 21 days prior to presentation when he had severe pain in the right knee...

An infantpresented with right upper eyelid ptosis and was subsequently diagnosed with acquired Horner syndrome. Further evaluation revealed a right-sided cervicothoracic lymphatic malformation. At 13 weeks of age, the child underwent percutaneous intracystic sclerotherapy with a mixture of sodium tetradecyl sulphate and ethanol. Twenty-one weeks after initial treatment, ophthalmic examination showed complete resolution of the blepharoptosis and pupillary miosis. Percutaneous sclerotherapy not only effectively treated the space-occupying lymphatic malformation but also reversed the Horner syndrome that was presumably induced by neural tension (more likely) or compression...

OBJECTIVE: Spontaneous cervical intradural disc herniation (IDH) is a rare occurrence with limited and disparate information available regarding its presentation, diagnosis, and treatment. However, its accurate detection is vital for planning surgical treatment. In this review of the literature, we collected data from all cervical intradural disc herniations described to date. Particular attention is paid to diagnostic findings, surgical approach and causation for cervical IDH, especially at the cervicothoracic junction...

Lumbar spinal fluid drainage is a common procedure for treating hydrocephalus and alleviating vasospasm by egesting blood in the subarachnoid cavity after subarachnoid hemorrhage. Despite being an effective and safe procedure, cerebrospinal fluid overdrainage might result in serious complications. Here we report the case of a 49-year-old man who suffered from tonsillar herniation with subsequent cervicothoracic syringomyelia in the acute phase of subarachnoid hemorrhage due to vertebral artery dissection. About 2 weeks after lumbar drainage was switched from external ventricular drainage initiated on the day of subarachnoid hemorrhage, the recovery from the disturbance of consciousness revealed tetraplegia, and magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated tonsillar herniation and syringomyelia...

BACKGROUND: En bloc excision of cervical chordoma is a technically complex procedure, due to the involvement and closeness of the tumor to the spinal cord, cervical nerve roots, and vertebral arteries. Studies have previously shown that en bloc excision of chordomas with negative margins improves local control and prolongs disease-free survival compared with intralesional excision. True en bloc spondylectomy in the cervical spine is not feasible since bilateral vertebral artery sacrifice is not possible...

Non-occlusive mesenteric ischemia (NOMI), which can lead to multifocal and segmental intestinal necrosis without demonstrable occlusion in the main mesenteric artery, is associated with extremely high mortality. Because these intestinal ischemic changes can progress, it is difficult to make a definitive determination intraoperatively as to whether resection of damaged intestine is required. A 62-year-old man who underwent esophagectomy for advanced cervicothoracic esophageal cancer complained of severe abdominal pain on postoperative day 4...

I read with great interest the article reported by Efe et al in Journal of Cranofacial Surgery (2016;27:1802-1803), presenting the excellent result obtained by the use of sclerotherapy with single-dose OK-432 in a growing cervical lymphangioma. Cervicothoracic lymphangioma is a rare congenital anomaly that is mostly asymptomatic. We would like to share our experience of a rare cause of dyspnea by lymphangioma. In our case, the patient presented with dyspnea and paroxysmal cough caused by cervicothoracic lymphangioma and sclerotherapy alleviated tracheal compression and relieved the dyspneic symptoms...
