  • [Title] Cerebellopontine angle tumors causing hemifacial spasm: types, incidence, and mechanism in nine reported cases and literature review.
  • OBJECTIVE: Although hemifacial spasm is usually caused by vascular compression around the root exit zone of the facial nerve, it is sometimes brought on by a cerebellopontine angle tumor.
  • We reviewed and analyzed data from past experience with hemifacial spasm induced by cerebellopontine angle tumors.
  • METHODS: Nine patients of a total 2,050, who had presented with hemifacial spasms associated with cerebellopontine angle tumors between 1986 and 2009, were reviewed.
  • With respect to the pathogenesis of hemifacial spasms, offending vessels were found in six patients, tumor encasement of the facial nerve in one patient, hypervascular tumor compression of the facial nerve without offending vessels in one patient, and a huge tumor compressing the brain stem and, thus, contralateral facial nerve compression in one patient.
  • Hemifacial spasm was resolved in seven patients, whereas in two patients with a vestibular schwannoma and an epidermoid tumor, it improved transiently and then recurred in a month.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Each type of tumor had different characteristics with respect to the induction of hemifacial spasm; therefore, it is suggested that neurosurgeons, who are planning surgeries both for the purposes of relieving hemifacial spasm and removal of cerebellopontine angle tumor, should thoroughly prepare appropriate approaches and specific dissecting strategies according to each causative lesion.

  • Aniridia is a rare panocular disorder affecting the cornea, anterior chamber, iris, lens, retina, macula and optic nerve.
  • It is associated with a number of syndromes, including Wilm's tumour, bilateral sporadic aniridia, genitourinary abnormalities and mental retardation (WAGR) syndrome.
  • It also results in abnormalities in the differentiation of the angle, resulting in glaucoma.
  • Glaucoma may also develop as a result of progressive angle closure from synechiae.
  • Aniridia is a profibrotic disorder, and as a result many interventions--including penetrating keratoplasty and filtration surgery--fail.

  • [Title] [Evaluation of the cochlear efferent system in patients with cerebello-pontine angle tumor].
  • The aim of the study was to estimate a cochlear efferent system in the group of patents with cerebello-pontine angle tumor (CPA).
  • The research was also conducted on the influence of tumor dimensions, age, sex, and the hearing level in tonal audiometry on the size of the efferent effect.
  • The research was carried out on a group of 14 patients with cerebello-pontine angle tumor and on an appropriate fourteen-person test group.
  • Having our results analyzed we were able to state that, compared with the test group, in the group of patients with CPA tumor significant reduce suppressions of otoacoustic emission response during CAS occurred both in an ear on the tumor side and in an ear on the healthy side.
  • However, the tumor dimensions, sex, and the hearing level in tonal audiometry seemed not to affect significantly the size of the efferent effect.

  • [Title] [Ultrasound biomicroscopy in diagnosis of anterior segment pathology].
  • INTRODUCTION: Ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure, developed in order to achieve better visualization of the anterior segment of the eye.
  • The existence of the ciliary body tumour was suspected, so she underwent a UBM diagnostic procedure.
  • UBM showed fibrin in the anterior chamber of the eye, occlusion of the pupil, and the absence of tumour.
  • The second patient had a part of the chamber angle filled with solid lesion.
  • UBM showed a solid tumour lesion filling the chamber angle in the lower part of the anterior chamber.
  • The origin of the tumour was the ciliary body rather than the choroid which was shown by the B scan ultrasound.
  • Our fourth patient underwent an antiglaucomatous procedure, and the assessment of the chamber angle opening was the reason for the UBM examination.
  • Comparing them to normal values, we came to the conclusion that the chamber angle was open in the lower part of the anterior chamber.
  • CONCLUSION: Ultrasound biomicroscopy gives us plenty of useful information when it comes to diagnosing the anterior chamber pathology.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: The probability of hearing loss during cerebellopontine angle (CPA) surgery can be reduced by using brainstem auditory evoked potential (BAEP) intraoperative monitoring (IOM).
  • When patients with CPA tumor were excluded, a significantly higher number of patients in Group 4 had hearing loss.
  • Analysis of the patients with CPA tumor showed no difference in the frequency of hearing loss in any of the groups; even a large number (50%) of Group 1 patients had hearing impairment.
  • For non-cerebellopontine angle tumor surgery, hearing loss occurs usually only with permanent loss of wave V; much smaller changes may be important in cerebellopontine angle tumor surgery.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The leading mechanisms are direct invasion of the chamber angle by tumour cells, rubeosis iridis, and forward displacement of the iris-lens-diaphragm with (lens induced) pupillary block.
  • As intraocular tumours may have pressure-lowering effects too, eyes bearing a tumour may also be hypotonic or normotonic inspite of a "glaucomatous chamber angle morphology".
  • The therapy of the tumour-induced glaucomas is hardly validated and generally follows the treatment of the other secondary glaucomas.
  • However, filtration procedures are contraindicated when a malignant tumour is diagnosed or suspected.
  • Because of the progress of tumour therapy with salvation of eyes which had to be enucleated in former times and prolongation of survival in some tumour entities (like Non Hodgkin's lymphoma and metastases) the significance of tumour-induced glaucomas will probably further increase in the future.

  • Iris melanoma is a rare ocular tumour, which can be detected early in its development.
  • This tumour is almost always unilateral and arises usually from a pre-existing naevus.
  • It was found that a tumour had spread throughout the iris stroma and invaded the anterior chamber angle.
  • Although enucleation would have been the treatment of choice in the past, the trend today in the treatment of a growing, large circumscribed iris tumour is to excise it.

  • CONCLUSIONS: To conclude, assessment of efferent suppression may be a useful addition to the battery test employed in the investigation of multiple sclerosis and cerebello-pontine angle tumors.
