  • Pineal Gland Cyst

    Asymptomatic cysts of the pineal gland are found frequently by radiological examination of the brain or at postmortem examination. Symptomatic cysts are rare, and may require surgical intervention. Sudden death due to a cystic lesion of the pineal gland is very rare. A case of a 22 year old man who collapsed and[…][]

Sequencing of[…][]

  • Reversible Ischemic Neurologic Deficit

    Reversible ischemic neurological deficit is a type of stroke due to the occlusion of blood supply to the brain leading to ischemia and neurological deficits which recover from 24 hours and up to a few weeks. It should be differentiated from a transient ischemic attack in which the neurological deficits do not last[…][]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is prevalent among elderly populations worldwide, and its mysterious pathogenesis has been discussed in the literature for decades. The issues remaining to be solved in regard to CSDH include the initiating events; the bleeding into the subdural space and the formation of the outer[…][]

  • Epidural Hematoma

    Background Epidural hematoma (EDH) is a traumatic accumulation of blood between the inner table of the skull and the stripped-off dural membrane. EDH results from traumatic head injury, usually with an associated skull fracture and arterial laceration.The inciting event often is a focused blow to the head, such as[…][]

  • Cerebral Embolism

    An 82-year-old man with an asymptomatic left high-grade carotid stenosis was treated with carotid artery stenting (CAS) under distal protection. The procedure consisted with predilation with a 5 x 40 mm percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) balloon, deployment of a 10 x 20 mm self-expandable stent,[…][]

  • Astrocytoma of the Brain

    Anaplastic Astrocytomas Anaplastic astrocytomas are one of two primary forms of high-grade (malignant) glioma. A tumor that arises from glial cells (from the Greek for “glue”), or supportive tissue, of the brain is called a “glioma.” One type of glioma is the astrocytoma. Astrocytomas are named after astrocytes,[…][]
