Basilary meningitis

Ali Z Syed, Samir Zahedpasha, Sonali A Rathore, Mel Mupparapu
The aim of this report is to present two cases of canalis basilaris medianus as identified on cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) in the base of the skull. The CBCT data sets were sent for radiographic consultation. In both cases, multi-planar views revealed an osseous defect in the base of the skull in the clivus region, the sagittal view showed a unilateral, well-defined, non-corticated, track-like low-attenuation osseous defect in the clivus. The appearance of the defect was highly reminiscent of a fracture of the clivus...

INTRODUCTION: From 1 August 1983 to 6 June 1992, 284 patients underwent decompression of the trigeminal root in the rear part of the skull as treatment for tic douloureux. According to preoperative diagnosis and intraoperative inspection, a space-occupying process was the cause of the typical neuralgia in 13 cases (4 meningiomas, 3 epidermoid tumours, 3 acoustic neuromas and 2 trigeminal neuromas). In 271 cases (95.4%) microsurgical vascular decompression according to Jannetta was carried out...

Occult malformations of the skull base are rare anomalies, but can cause severe complications such as meningitis. Detailed skull base investigations for detecting cerebrospinal fluid fistulas or celes are often not initiated until after a history of recurrent meningitis. We present a child first seen at the age of 12 with recurrent episodes of bacterial meningitis since early childhood, requiring antibiotic prophylaxis for years. High-resolution computed tomography revealed a chronic sinusitis and a bony defect on the right olfactory groove, while magnetic resonance imaging and CT-cisternography indicated no cerebrospinal fluid fistula or cele at that time...

We report the MRI appearances of an developmental anatomical variant of the basiocciput, with neuroimaging findings (CT and MRI). Such variants are commonly asymptomatic, but may be associated with episodes of meningitis.
