  • INTRODUCTION: Ganglioglioma is an uncommon type of primary brain tumors.
  • In most of the cases the tumor demonstrates benign clinical behaviour with long-term patients' survival.
  • The tumor was excised partially and the histological result was anaplastic ganglioglioma (World Health Organization - WHO. gr. III).
  • The patient was symptom-free for one year taking her anticonvulsant medications.
  • A local tumor recurrence was found and the patient underwent second operative intervention with gross total tumor resection.
  • IV glioma). The patient improved after the procedure.
  • An involvement of the contralateral cerebral hemisphere was found on control CT-scan ten months later.
  • MRI data for large, heterointense tumor lesion in the left frontal lobe was found.
  • A subtotal tumor removal was made.
  • She was seizure-free taking her anticonvulsant medications.
  • Data for additional local tumor growth was found on control CT-scan one month later.
  • The tumor behaviour may vary between the patients in spite of the similar histological characteristics which indicates the possible presence of different tumor subtypes.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Paragangliomas are highly vascularized usually benign neoplasms arising from nerve tissue.
  • Our purpose was to evaluate angiographic and clinical outcome using Onyx for percutaneous glomus tumor embolization.
  • RESULTS: Complete devascularization of the 6 paragangliomas was achieved using a percutaneous embolization technique with Onyx as a sole agent, combined with an endovascular microballoon that offered protection of the internal carotid artery.
  • Nevertheless, Onyx seems to be safe when used percutaneously due to its lavalike pattern flow and its controllable properties, allowing slow tumor bed penetration.
