MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Brain Tumors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Most pilocytic astrocytomas (piloA) are benign growths (World Health Organization [WHO] grade 1) of the deep midline structures, the brainstem, and the cerebellum.
  • RESULTS: There were 20 patients (45%) with supratentorial lobar piloA (including 10 temporal/temporomesial tumors, 5 parietal tumors, 3 insular tumors, 1 frontal tumor, and 1 occipital tumors), 12 patients with cerebellar piloA, 7 patients with brainstem piloA, 2 patients with opticochiasmatic PiloA, 1 patient with intramedullary piloA, and 2 patients with piloA of the basal ganglia.
  • All but 1 patient with a lobar tumor presented with epilepsy.
  • Tumor recurrence or disease progression was observed in 13 of 44 patients (30%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: PiloA in adult patients, surprisingly, often was not a benign disease.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Balance control in sitting and standing in children and young adults with benign cerebellar tumors.
  • Children and young adolescents with chronic surgical cerebellar lesions show persistent balance control problems during standing when lesions affect the deep cerebellar fastigial and adjacent interposed nuclei.
  • Balance control was assessed in 16 patients after surgery of a benign cerebellar tumor in chronic state and healthy age- and gender-matched control subjects.
  • High-resolution MRI scans were acquired in the cerebellar patients.
  • During sitting, 56% of cerebellar patients exhibited trunkal sway outside the range of healthy controls, and 87.5% of cerebellar patients revealed abnormal sway patterns during standing.
  • In patients with surgery <1-year lesions of the inferior cerebellar vermis also had an impact on balance function.
  • Our results corroborate previous evidence that the extent of permanent damage to the deep cerebellar nuclei greatly impacts on the recovery on balance function.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - After Surgery.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Postoperative cerebellar mutism in adult patients with Lhermitte-Duclos disease.
  • Cerebellar mutism (CM) is a rare and severe form of speech and language impairment, mostly diagnosed in children and adolescents and rarely reported in adults.
  • We also report two illustrative cases of CM following surgical treatment of Lhermitte-Duclos disease (LDD; dysplastic gangliocytoma) in two adult patients.
  • LDD is a rare benign cerebellar tumor.
  • However, surgery is hampered by the difficulty to distinguish between tumor and healthy cerebellar tissue, which may result in extensive resection and cause neurological deficits such as CM.
  • Despite the severity, CM carries a favorable prognosis and generally resolves within a few months.To conclude, we review the clinical signs and particularly the pathophysiological observations and anatomical structures affected in the development of postoperative CM and contribute two cases illustrating the pathogenesis, prognosis, and possible prevention of this syndrome, to focus that CM might also occur in adults even in association with rare tumors.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Cerebellar developmental venous anomalies with associated vascular pathology.
  • Cerebellar developmental venous anomalies (CDVA) are benign conditions, although sometimes they are associated with haemorrhages and reported to be symptomatic.
  • Four patients had CDVA and an associated vascular pathology: two pontine cavernomas, one asymptomatic arteriovenous malformation (this is the first published case in the literature) and one cerebellar infarct with a developmental variation of the posterior fossa venous circulation.
  • In conclusion, CDVAs are benign, asymptomatic conditions, but they are sometimes associated with pathogenic malformations requiring detailed neuroradiological investigations.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Cerebellar vermis lesions and tumours of the fourth ventricle in patients with positional and positioning vertigo and nystagmus.
  • The most common form is benign paroxysmal positioning.
  • In this paper, we discuss more serious aetiologies in the differential diagnosis for patients presenting with a history suggestive of benign paroxysmal positioning vertigo.
  • We draw attention to the diagnosis of cerebellar vermis lesions and tumours of the fourth ventricle by presenting two cases of patients with positional nystagmus of so called benign paroxysmal type.
  • We review the literature on positional nystagmus, highlighting key findings on history and physical examination to aid in the correct diagnosis of benign paroxysmal positioning vertigo, and to differentiate it from the rare yet sinister central aetiologies that can present with positional vertigo of the benign positional type.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Symptomatic bilateral cerebellar mass lesions: an unusual presentation of intracranial xanthogranuloma.
  • Xanthogranulomas are a group of benign lesions with an incidence of 1.6-7.0% in various autopsy series.
  • Multicentric bilateral symptomatic cerebellar xanthogranuloma has not been reported previously.
  • We describe a 35-year-old man who presented with a complaint of vertigo, with nystagmus and left-side cerebellar signs found on clinical examination.
  • Radiological evaluation revealed bilateral cerebellar lesions abutting the cerebellopontine angle cistern.
  • The role of histopathology cannot be overemphasized in the diagnosis of this rare lesion and long-term follow-up is advised in cases managed conservatively owing to the propensity of this tumor to grow over time.

  • INTRODUCTION: Hemangioblastomas are histologically benign lesions that comprise 1-2 % of primary nervous system tumours and 8-12 % of all posterior fossa lesions in the adult.
  • Tumors were located on cerebellar hemisphere (17), cerebellar vermis (4) and brain stem (1).
  • Tumors were cyst in 16 cases, solid in 8 cases.
  • Total tumor removal was achieved in 21 patients (95 %), and incomplete removal in 1 cases.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Hemangioblastomas are benign tumors of uncertain origin that are located predominantly in the posterior cranial fossa and the spinal cord.

  • [Title] Factors influencing activities of daily living using FIM-FAM scoring system before starting adjuvant treatment in patients with brain tumors: results from a prospective study.
  • BACKGROUND: Patients with brain tumors have varied degree of functional and psychological impairments because of factors relating to the tumor or to the treatment they receive.
  • MATERIAL AND METHOD: From August 2007 to April 2008, 150 consecutive adult (>18 years) primary brain tumor patients (median age 40 years; male 88, female 62) registered in a general out-patient neuro-oncology clinic were accrued and detailed data were recorded.
  • Seventy percent had malignant tumor (66% high-grade and 34% low-grade; 70% intra-axial).
  • The common sites for tumors included frontal region (30.7%), posterior fossa (12%), and left parietal region (11.3%).
  • Univariate analysis showed total FIM-FAM scores not significantly different with age (< or =35 years vs. >35 years; P = 0.994), sex (male versus female; P = 0.133), and grade of the tumor (high-grade versus low-grade; P = 0.142) but were significantly higher in patients with a Karnofsky performance score (KPS) of > or =70 as compared with <70 (P = 0.001), neurological performance scale (NPS) of 0 or 1 vs. 2 or 3; P = 0.001), disease type (benign versus malignant; P = 0.001), and site of disease (cerebral versus cerebellar; P = 0.024).
  • A trend for correlation between tumor sites with the corresponding function as assesses on the FIM-FAM score was observed.
  • There is strong correlation with age, type of tumor, and site of disease with different functional and cognitive domain impairment.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL) is a rare autosomal-dominant disorder in which affected individuals develop tumors in a number of locations.
  • Metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) remains the leading cause of mortality in patients with clear cell RCC arising from mutations in the VHL tumor suppressor.
  • VHL patients can present with a number of other renal lesions, such as hemangiomas and benign adenomas, in addition to simple cysts and RCC.
  • Detailed clinical examination of the 22 kindreds with a VHL mutation revealed cerebellar hemangioblastoma (three kindreds), meningioma (two) and renal cell carcinoma (five).
