Hamartoma of the Central Nervous System

Hamartoma of Cns


Presentation

  • The signs and symptoms of neurological disease are elusive by their very nature, presenting a confounding diagnostic challenge.[books.google.com]
  • Normal neural parenchyma labeled with antibodies directed against glial fibrillary acidic protein and neuron-specific enolase was present between the vascular proliferations. A diagnosis of focal vascular hamartoma in the obex was made.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Clinical presentation: Congenital lesion. Presents as cutaneous lump in children. No true defect of skull or spinal column is present.[histopathology-india.net]
  • , of which 3 or more must be trichilemmomas, Facial papules and oral mucosal papillomatosis are present, Oral mucosal papillomatosis and acral keratoses are present, or Six or more palmoplantar keratoses are present.[dermnetnz.org]
Torticollis
  • Conversely, early developmental disturbances of vision often disrupt ocular motor control systems, giving rise to complex disorders such as nystagmus, strabismus, and torticollis.[books.google.com]
  • Most resolve completely, but minor residual asymmetry or tightening of the sternocleidomastoid muscle is seen in 25% of cases. 1 Only 9% have persistence of the tumor and torticollis.[clinicalgate.com]
Osteoporosis
  • Updated clinical guidelines for diabetes, lipid disorders, obesity management, osteoporosis, and more, as well as essential treatment updates for the medical management of acromegaly, Cushing's Disease, hypercalcemia, and diabetes mellitus.[books.google.com]
Excitement
  • This exciting new, full-color reference provides you with the most comprehensive, authoritative, up-to-date information for diagnosing and treating children with cancer.[books.google.com]
  • Gelastic can also be triggered by excitement and anxiety. Many of the unusual behaviors associated with HH make diagnosis difficult.[hopeforhh.org]
  • Such lesions can cause excitation of the medio-basal temporal structures by way of the limbic system. [57] Various hypotheses have been put forward to explain its pathophysiology: (i) Mechanical action Gelastic epilepsy is common with large tumours; and[jpgmonline.com]

Treatment

  • Make the best clinical decisions with an enhanced emphasis on evidence-based practice and expert opinions on treatment strategies. Zero in on the most relevant and useful references with the aid of a more focused, concise bibliography.[books.google.com]
  • Treatment is dictated by the tumor's location and patient's symptoms.[aans.org]
  • The duration of treatment varied from 2.66 to 8.41 years.[adc.bmj.com]

  • Prognosis This is varied between patients and may be non-progressing (or slowly progressing) in some patients and rapidly progressing in others. There is a guarded visual prognosis.[patient.info]
  • They are treated, if at all, by surgical resection, with an excellent prognosis: generally, the only real danger is the inherent possibility of surgical complications.[en.wikipedia.org]

Etiology

  • A triple association between juvenile chronic myeloid leukemia, juvenile xanthogranulomas, and NF-1 is recognized ( Fig. 26.11 ). 47 Etiology. The etiology of juvenile xanthogranuloma is unknown.[clinicalgate.com]
  • The more notable studies of the period were by Ribbert (1910, 1918) who speculated about the histogenesis and etiology of glioma, particularly in his paper on spongioblastoma and glioma (“Über das Spongioblastoma und das Gliom” .[frontiersin.org]
  • Final Diagnosis -- Hypothalamic Hamartoma (Precocious Puberty) FINAL DIAGNOSIS: HYPOTHALAMIC HAMARTOMA Precocious puberty is a syndrome which can result from numerous etiologies including lesions or tumors of the pituitary or hypothalamus.[path.upmc.edu]
  • It is etiologically classified broadly as central and peripheral.[ijem.in]

  • Epidemiology TSC is described as a genetic disease, despite the fact that only 30% of the cases are familial. Prevalence of 25,000 to 40,000 patients in USA, and 1 to 2 million worldwide. TSC has equal in incidence in all races and both genders.[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu]

  • Pathophysiology Pathogenesis Hamartomas occur in the same location as the normal tissue (in the tissue of its origin) as opposed to choristomas, which grow in other tissues (different from its origin).[wikidoc.org]
