Infratentorial Neoplasms


  • Few reports have presented adequate hematologic data. Reëmphasis of the diagnostic problem presented by patients with polycythemia and papilledema appeared justified.[annals.org]
  • Presentation: The most common presentation of posterior fossa tumors in children is symptomatic elevated ICP secondary to obstructive hydrocephalus . Focal signs are less common.[ispn.guide]

  • Posterior fossa ependymoma presents in younger children and frequently includes symptoms and signs of increased intracranial pressure, such as headache, fatigue, diplopia, papilledema, nausea, vomiting, ataxia, vertigo, head tilt, or neck pain.[clinicaladvisor.com]
  • Characteristics Arises from cells that form a protective sheath around nerve fibers Typically grows around the eighth cranial nerve, but can be found around other cranial or spinal nerves Symptoms Hearing loss in one ear Dizziness or vertigo Tinnitus[braintumor.org]
  • It is quite rare that it actually produces vertigo because the slow growth permits ample time for compensation. These tumors are resectable, though larger tumors may leave residual deficit.[dartmouth.edu]
  • He was found to have bilateral gaze-evoked nystagmus (with a rotatory component), and a right sixth nerve palsy with hyperreflexia and hyperesthesia on the left side of the body.[file.scirp.org]
  • ., hemiparesis, hyperreflexia, clonus). Supratentorial tumors are more commonly associated with focal disorders such as motor weaknesses, sensory changes, speech disorders, seizures, and reflex abnormalities.[obgynkey.com]
  • They may develop macrocephaly, hyperreflexia and cranial nerve palsies. Children with an intracranial tumour and neurofibromatosis: Reduced visual acuity, exophthalmia and optic atrophy.[patient.info]
  • Upper motor neuron signs: hemiparesis, hyperreflexia, clonus and sensory losses. Frontal or parietal-occipital, third ventricle: may have no focal deficits (present with increased ICP).[hawaii.edu]
Trigeminal Neuralgia
  • In other cases, compression of the ophthalmic division of the trigeminal nerve or involvement of the nerve by tumor results in the typical pain of trigeminal neuralgia.[clinicalgate.com]

  • Despite being preventable and curable, this disease is still a diagnostic challenge using conventional workup.[file.scirp.org]
  • Any adult who has a recent onset of seizures, particularly focal seizures, is considered a tumor suspect until adequate neurologic workup proves otherwise. Specific Tumor Types There are many types of tumors that develop intracranially.[dartmouth.edu]

  • This volume mainly contains information on the diagnosis, therapy, and prognosis of brain tumors. Insights on the understanding of molecular pathways involved in tumor biology are explained, which should lead to the development of effective drugs.[books.google.es]
  • Infratentorial GBM presents with limited surgical treatment options and a poorer prognosis. Computational studies have shown a strong connection between the array layout and the field distribution within the supratentorial region.[academic.oup.com]
  • EZH2 was recently suggested as the marker of a poor prognosis in children with infratentorial ependymoma.[journals.plos.org]
  • Prognosis” refers to the probable course and outcome of the disease. Physicians reference one or more clinical studies to obtain their prognosis statistics.[cern-foundation.org]
  • On the whole, the long term prognosis is better in children than adults. Incidence The incidence of pediatric brain tumors is roughly 3.3 cases per 100,000 children in North America.[pedsoncologyeducation.com]

  • Position the patient to avoid extreme hip or neck flexion and maintain the head in midline, neutral position to prevent increased ICP.[quizlet.com]
  • This can be detrimental to the children as it might prevent a fast development of symptoms, which can lead to a delay in diagnosis.[steadyhealth.com]
