  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Do intracranial neoplasms differ in Ollier disease and maffucci syndrome? An in-depth analysis of the literature.
  • Both are associated with chondrosarcomas and other nonsarcomatous neoplasms (NSN), but Maffucci syndrome is thought to have greater malignancy potential.
  • We examined whether OD and Maffucci syndrome differ in the number, histology, in the location of intracranial malignancies, and in the demographics of such patients, as reported in the medical literature.
  • Unpaired Student's t tests were used to compare OD and Maffucci syndrome, and chondrosarcoma and NSN patients for mean age; Pearson chi analysis was used for comparisons of gender distribution, geographical distribution (by continent), site of lesion, and for OD versus Maffucci syndrome, tumor type (chondrosarcoma versus NSN).
  • RESULTS: Forty-six patients with 47 intracranial malignancies were identified: 24 with OD, including 6 with a chondrosarcoma and 18 with an NSN; and 22 with Maffucci syndrome, including 13 with a chondrosarcoma, 8 with an NSN, and 1 with both.
  • CONCLUSION: OD and Maffucci syndrome differ with respect to the distribution of intracranial malignancies by histology, and geographical and age distribution of cases, with OD patients younger by approximately a decade, and Maffucci syndrome patients more likely to live in Asia or South America.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Intracranial lipomas: importance of localization.
  • Intracranial lipomas are rare congenital malformations.
  • Other brain malformations are often seen in association with intracranial lipomas.
  • We retrospectively reviewed CT and MR findings of 24 patients (14 female, 10 male, mean age 38.6 years) diagnosed with intracranial lipoma between December 2000 and June 2004 in two different radiology departments.
  • The intracranial locations of the lipomas were left-sided quadrigeminal cistern (n=3), right-sided quadrigeminal cistern (n=4), interpeduncular cistern (n=1), sylvian fissure (n=3), interhemispheric fissure (n=3), choroid plexus (n=2), intercerebellar fissure (n=3), corpus fornicis (n=1) and the periphery of the corpus callosum (n=4).
  • Eighteen of the intracranial lipomas were tubulonodular; six were curvilinear.
  • The two preferential sites of intracranial lipomas were pericallosal and dorsal mesencephalic.
  • Most intracranial lipomas are found incidentally during neuroradiological investigations.
  • Midline anomalies and other malformations such as aneurysms are frequently associated with intracranial lipomas.

COS Scholar Universe. author profiles.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Intracranial microvascular free flaps.
  • Large acquired intracranial defects can result from trauma or surgery.
  • When reoperation is required because of infection or tumor recurrence, management of the intracranial dead space can be challenging.
  • By providing well-vascularized bulky tissue, intracranial microvascular free flaps offer potential solutions to these life-threatening complications.
  • A multi-institutional retrospective chart and radiographic review was performed of all patients who underwent microvascular free-flap surgery for salvage treatment of postoperative intracranial infections between 1998 and 2006.
  • A total of six patients were identified with large intracranial defects and postoperative intracranial infections.
  • Four patients had parenchymal resections for tumor or seizure and two patients had posttraumatic encephalomalacia.
  • All patients underwent operative debridement and intracranial free-flap reconstruction using the latissimus dorsi muscle (N=2), rectus abdominis muscle (N=2), or omentum (N=2).
  • We concluded that surgery or trauma can result in significant intracranial dead space.
  • Treatment of postoperative intracranial infection can be challenging.
  • The early use of this technique when intracranial dead space and infection coexist is beneficial.

  • The low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma is a rare sarcoma of the deep soft tissue that is characterized as an indolent but metastasizing soft-tissue neoplasm with a deceptively benign histological appearance.
  • Only one case of intracranial origin has been previously reported in the literature.
  • A high rate of local recurrence and eventual metastasis has been demonstrated for this tumor in deep soft tissue.
  • The tumor is still under control without any evidence of extracranial metastasis.

  • [Title] Long-term outcome in patients harboring intracranial ependymoma.
  • OBJECT: The prognostic significance of tumor grade and resection and the efficacy of prophylactic radiation remain controversial in the management of intracranial ependymoma.
  • The outcomes in patients with intracranial ependymoma treated at the Kyoto University Hospital were reviewed retrospectively, and prognostic significance was analyzed.
  • Overall survival and progression-free survival rates were significantly higher in patients with Grade II ependymoma (p = 0.006 and 0.004, respectively) and in patients who had undergone gross-total resection of the tumor (p = 0.002 and 0.04, respectively).
  • In nine patients the ependymoma recurred only at the original tumor site.
  • All relapses of the Grade II ependymoma initially occurred at the primary tumor site.
  • Histological grade and extent of resection were significantly associated with tumor dissemination (p = 0.0034 and 0.0011, respectively).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Tumor grade and resection are the two important prognostic factors with respect to patient survival, tumor recurrence, and tumor dissemination.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Sequential salvage chemotherapy for recurrent intracranial hemangiopericytoma.
  • OBJECTIVE: Hemangiopericytoma (HPC) is an uncommon primary brain tumor with an almost invariable tendency to recur and metastasize.
  • We undertook a retrospectively collected case series of recurrent intracranial HPCs treated with salvage chemotherapy with the primary objective of evaluating progression-free survival.
  • Eight patients developed disseminated disease, all with multifocal intracranial disease (5 with cerebrospinal fluid dissemination, 4 with extraneural metastases).
  • CONCLUSION: Salvage chemotherapy demonstrated modest efficacy with acceptable toxicity in this cohort of adult patients with recurrent surgery- and radiotherapy-refractory intracranial HPC.

  • OBJECTIVE: Congenital intracranial tumors are rare and only account for 0.5-1.5% of all pediatric brain tumors.
  • Teratoma is the most frequently encountered intracranial tumor at birth.
  • Massive congenital intracranial teratoma is an extremely rare neoplasm with a poor prognosis.
  • Herein we report a massive intracranial teratoma causing skull rupture.
  • CASE REPORT: A fetus with a congenital intracranial teratoma presenting with a disproportionately enlarged head at 25 weeks of gestation is presented.
  • Prenatal ultrasonography demonstrated a huge, heterogeneous intracranial mass, and midline structures and ventricles could not be observed.
  • Autopsy was perforated, and histopathologic examination of the samples taken from the intracranial mass revealed an immature teratoma.
  • CONCLUSION: Although congenital intracranial teratomas are rare, they may reach enormous sizes.
  • Regular follow-up of the fetus may lead to early diagnosis of immature intracranial teratomas and prevent the mother from having further complications either due to intrauterine fetal death orpsychological trauma of giving birth to a heavily malformed baby.

  • OBJECTIVES: The investigation was designed to explore the efficacy of boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) as treatment for recurrent intracranial meningeal tumours.
  • RESULTS: The present results indicate that BNCT could be effective in prolonging time to recurrence, and thus in extending survival time, for patients with recurrent intracranial meningeal tumours.
  • CONCLUSIONS: BNCT is potentially an effective radiation treatment modality for malignant intracranial meningeal tumours, which could increase progression-free survival, thus reducing the need for additional surgical interventions.

  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Intracranial facial nerve schwannomas are rare neoplasms.
  • Preoperative diagnosis is difficult because of non-specific clinical presentations (deafness, facial paralysis sudden or progressive) and radiological differential diagnosis (petrous bone tumor, vestibular schwannoma).
  • METHODS: Seven cases (four men and three women) of intracranial facial nerve schwannomas were retrospectively studied.
  • A large tumor requires surgery, but surveillance can be a good option for a small one, considering the risk of postoperative facial palsy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Intracranial meningioma in children: different from adult forms? A series of 21 cases.
  • OBJECTIVE: Intracranial meningiomas are very rare in children, comprising only 0.4 to 4.1% of pediatric tumors and only 1.5 to 1.8% to all intracranial meningiomas.
  • The goal of this study of pediatric meningiomas was to establish their epidemiological profile as well as their clinical and radiological features, to assess the long-term outcome, and compare this result with adult meningioma.
  • The most common clinical sign was raised intracranial pressure (90%).
  • The mean tumor diameter was 6.6 cm (range: 3 to 10 cm).
  • CONCLUSION: Pediatric meningiomas are larger than those found in the adult population; there is a male predominance with high incidence of a cystic component and high-grade meningiomas, thus explaining the increased recurrence rate despite the multimodal treatment.

  • OBJECTIVE: The aim of this report is to describe 3 cases of salivary gland tumors with intracranial extension associated to an extracerebral mass lesion, and to discuss the frequence, pathology and treatment of these very rare localizations.
  • The location of the intradural extra-axial tumor was the middle fossa and temporal region in 2 cases and the cerebellopontine angle in 1.
  • RESULTS: 1 patient is alive and free of recurrence 32 months after removal of the intracranial tumor; 2 other patients died 28 months and 12 months postoperatively.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The intracranial extension of salivary gland tumors is a very rare event.
  • An aggressive surgical resection followed by radiotherapy is justified in cases with significant intracranial mass lesions and scarce bone and dural involvement.

  • [Title] Low-dose prophylactic craniospinal radiotherapy for intracranial germinoma.
  • PURPOSE: To report outcomes of patients with localized intracranial germinoma treated with low-dose craniospinal irradiation (CSI) followed by a boost to the ventricular system and primary site.
  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: Thirty-one patients had pathologically confirmed intracranial germinoma and no spine metastases.
  • Low-dose CSI was administered in 29 patients: usually 21 Gy of CSI, 9.0 Gy of ventricular boost, and a 19.5-Gy tumor boost, all at 1.5 Gy per fraction.
  • Our neuroradiologist recorded three-dimensional tumor size on magnetic resonance images before, during, and after radiotherapy.
  • In locally controlled patients, tumor response according to magnetic resonance scan was nearly complete within 6 months after radiotherapy.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Radiotherapy alone with low-dose prophylactic CSI cures almost all patients with localized intracranial germinoma.

  • [Title] Prognostic significance of intracranial dissemination of glioblastoma multiforme in adults.
  • OBJECT: The clinical outcome and treatment of adult patients with disseminated intracranial glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is unclear.
  • The objective in the present study was to assess the prognostic significance of disseminated intracranial GBM in adults at presentation and at the time of tumor progression.
  • Patients with dissemination at first tumor progression (52 patients) overall had a shorter PPS than those in a control group with local progression, after adjusting for age, Kamofsky Performance Scale score, and time from tumor diagnosis to its progression (311 patients).
  • When analyzed according to tumor dissemination type, PPS was significantly shorter in patients with Type II (33 patients, p < 0.01) and Type III spread (11 patients, p < 0.01) but not in those with Type I spread (eight patients, p = 0.18).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Apparently, the presence of intracranial tumor dissemination on initial diagnosis does not in itself preclude aggressive treatment if a patient is otherwise well.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Prediction of intracranial edema after radiosurgery of meningiomas.
  • OBJECT: This study was focused on the development of models with which to predict the occurrence of intracranial edema after Gamma Knife surgery (GKS) of meningiomas, based on clinical and imaging data collected in a large group of patients.
  • The actuarial tumor control rate was 97.9% at 5 years.
  • Ten different factors were proposed as potential predictors for the occurrence of the intracranial edema after GKS: patient's sex, patient's age, previous surgery, edema before GKS treatment, lobulated margin of meningioma, heterogeneous appearance of the tumor, tumor volume, tumor location, maximum dose to the tumor, and dose to the tumor margin.
  • There was a significant difference in the incidence of edema for different patient age groups and a significantly higher incidence of edema occurrence in patients in whom no surgical procedure was performed before GKS, those with edema present before GKS, those with a tumor volume larger than 10 cm3, those in whom the tumor was located in the anterior fossa, those in whom the maximum dose to the tumor was higher than 30 Gy, and for different tumor margin doses.
  • A binary logistic regression multifactorial prediction model was used to identify the following significant factors to predict of edema occurrence after GKS: previous surgery, edema before the treatment, tumor volume, tumor location, and tumor margin dose.

  • [Title] [Prognostic implications of biologic markers in intracranial meningiomas: 120 cases].
  • The recurrence and progression of treated intracranial meningiomas highlights the problem of the type of follow-up that should be used and whether early complementary treatment is indicated.
  • The aim of this study was to evaluate different biochemical markers involved in cell proliferation and transformation to identify new prognostic factors in intracranial meningiomas.
  • Between 1989 and 2003, 120 intracranial meningiomas were studied biochemically.
  • The levels of estrogen receptors (RE), progesterone receptors (RP), cathepsin B (CB), cathepsin L (CL), stefin A (ATA), stefin B (STB), cystatin C (CYSC), urokinase (u-PA), type 1 plasminogen activator inhibitors (PAI-1), cathepsin D (CD) and thymidine kinase activity (TK) were measured in tumor extracts using biochemical assays.
  • Monofactorial analysis showed that expression of progesterone receptors (RP) had an inverse correlation with recurrence (p=0.0025 %) and that thymidine kinase activity (TK), cathepsin L (CL), the WHO grade and the degree of tumor resection correlated with recurrence (p<0.05).
  • The results of this study confirm the importance of biological parameters (PR, CL, TK) as prognostic factors for the risk of recurrence in intracranial meningiomas.

  • PATIENTS: All patients with intracranial lower cranial nerve schwannomas treated surgically in our institution between July 1998 and July 2005.
  • INTERVENTION: A retrosigmoid, transcondylar, or combined approach was used for tumor recurrence.
  • RESULTS: Thirty-nine patients underwent surgical resection, with complete tumor removal in 32, near-total resection in 5 patients, and subtotal tumor excision in 2 patients.
  • Long-term (mean, 8.2 years) magnetic resonance imaging surveillance demonstrated recurrent tumor in 2 of 32 complete resections and slow regrowth in 2 of 7 patients with known residual disease.
  • DISCUSSION: Intracranial schwannomas of the lower cranial nerves are relatively uncommon and may present with subtle or no clinical symptoms.
  • Successful surgical resection with low risk of tumor recurrence can be achieved with the retrosigmoid or transcondylar approach.

  • [Title] The role of stereotactic radiosurgery for intracranial hemangioblastomas.
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the role of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) in the management of recurrent or residual intracranial hemangioblastomas, we assessed tumor control, survival, and complications in 32 consecutive patients.
  • METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed records of 32 consecutive hemangioblastoma patients (74 intracranial tumors) who underwent gamma knife SRS.
  • Follow-up imaging studies demonstrated tumor control in 68 tumors (91.9%).
  • Factors associated with an improved progression-free survival included von Hippel-Lindau disease-associated hemangioblastoma, solid tumor, lower tumor volume, and greater marginal dose.
  • CONCLUSION: SRS is an important tool in the management of hemangioblastomas and is associated with a high tumor control rate and a low risk of adverse radiation effects.

  • [Title] The growing teratoma syndrome after subtotal resection of an intracranial nongerminomatous germ cell tumor in an adult: case report.
  • OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE: We report a rare complication after resection of a recurrent intracranial nongerminomatous germ cell tumor in an adult.
  • The growing teratoma syndrome, as originally described with pediatric germ cell neoplasms, represents tumor recurrence, often cystic, that sometimes is observed after partial response to multimodality therapy and despite decreasing tumor serum markers.
  • The enlarging tumor consists of elements of a mature teratoma that presumably are refractory to chemotherapy or radiation.
  • To our knowledge, this is only the third case of the growing teratoma syndrome in an adult patient with nongerminomatous germ cell tumor.
  • CLINICAL PRESENTATION: A 26-year-old man had signs of recurrent obstructive hydrocephalus 6 months after multimodality treatment of a diencephalic yolk sac tumor and endoscopic third ventriculostomy.
  • Imaging studies revealed large multilocular cystic masses originating from the tumor bed and partially obstructing the ventriculostomy.
  • INTERVENTION: Near total tumor resection and fenestration was performed.

  • [Title] Gamma Knife stereotactic radiosurgery for intracranial hemangiopericytomas.
  • The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of Gamma Knife stereotactic radiosurgery (GK SRS) for intracranial hemangiopericytomas, and to investigate the optimal dose for successful tumor control without adverse effects.
  • The mean tumor volume was 2.2 cm(3) (range 0.2-9.9 cm(3)), and the mean and median marginal doses were 18.1 and 20 Gy (range 11-22 Gy), respectively, at the 50% isodose line.
  • Successful tumor control was achieved in 14 of 17 lesions (82.4%) at time of last follow-up after GK SRS.
  • Actuarial local tumor control rates at 1, 2, and 5 years after GK SRS were 100%, 84.6%, and 67.7%, respectively.
  • Marginal dose (>or=17 Gy) was the only statistically significant factor for local tumor control on univariate analysis.
  • Our results suggest that doses higher than previously used (around 15 Gy) are desirable to achieve better local tumor control of hemangiopericytomas.

  • [Title] Spinal cord astrocytoma presenting as "idiopathic" intracranial hypertension.
  • Increased intracranial pressure is rarely seen in association with spinal tumors.
  • We describe a young, non-obese man who presented with increased intracranial pressure, papilledema and visual obscuration.
  • Multiple cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) examinations with normal or minimally elevated CSF protein lead to the initial diagnosis of idiopathic intracranial hypertension.
  • The spinal MRI showed a low cervical-upper thoracic intramedullary tumor.
  • The suspected mechanisms of spinal tumors causing increased intracranial pressure are reviewed as well as three other cases of spinal astrocytomas previously reported in the literature that presented with papilledema and increased intracranial pressure without hydrocephalus.
  • This case illustrates that increased intracranial pressure may in exceptional cases of spinal tumors precede the more typical myelopathic presentation by months and mimic idiopathic intracranial hypertension.
