This vasculopathy is often detected incidentally during a cerebral angiogram for non-ischaemic cerebral events. FMD affects the proximal one-third of the internal carotid artery in almost all[…][]

  • Brain Neoplasm

    Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) using the Gamma Knife (GK) is now being increasingly utilized for the treatment of brain metastases. However, there are a few reported cases of SRS-induced brain neoplasms. We herein report the case of a Japanese woman with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) harboring[…][]

Deaths in children with CP, never common, have in recent years become very rare, unless the child is very severely and multiply disabled. Thus, virtually all children[…][]
