  • Dandy-Walker Syndrome

    It is rare for Dandy-Walker syndrome to occur together with occipital encephalocele.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The common presenting symptom and associated central nervous system anomaly were enlargement of head and occipital encephalocele, respectively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Seven had occipital encephalocele and in 1 of these there was an associated Klippel-Feil syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Encephalocele

    The lesion is usually in the lumbosacral area but sometimes it can be more extensive and may involve the entire spinal cord.[neuropathology-web.org] Occipital encephaloceles are the most frequent type in North America and Western Europe, where about 85% of encephaloceles take this form.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He also identified syringomyelia in the spinal cords of some patients, and the commonly found hydrocephalus of patients with myelomeningocele was, in his opinion, not enough[link.springer.com]

  • Occipital Encephalocele

    The lesion is usually in the lumbosacral area but sometimes it can be more extensive and may involve the entire spinal cord.[neuropathology-web.org] Two children with giant occipital encephaloceles with herniation of significant brain parenchyma into the encephalocele sac were managed with expansile cranioplasty and reconstruction[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He also identified syringomyelia in the spinal cords of some patients, and the commonly found hydrocephalus of patients with myelomeningocele was, in his opinion, not enough[link.springer.com]

  • Caudal Spinal Cord Tumor

    Level and pattern of spinal cord dysfunction help determine presence and location of a spinal cord lesion but not always type of lesion.[msdmanuals.com] For example, large occipital encephaloceles containing solely or largely CSF may have an excellent prognosis, whereas those having large amounts of occipital lobe or brainstem[pediatrics.aappublications.org] In some early partial spinal cord transverse lesion syndromes, neurosurgical treatment may be advisable.[minclinic.ru]

  • Syringomyelia

    A biopsy of the central canal spinal cord lesion revealed CP. Decompression and syringosubarachnoid shunt insertion stabilized the patient's neurology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] encephalocele, tumors) Syringomyelia due to spinal cord injury Fewer than 10% of syringomyelia cases are of this type.[spinabifidasupport.com] Chiari I malformation, cervical stenosis, basilar impression, occipital encephalocele, and arachnoiditis belong to this category.[2].[explainmedicine.com]
