  • [Title] Rosette-forming glioneuronal tumor of the fourth ventricle--case report.
  • Rosette-forming glioneuronal tumor (RGNT) of the fourth ventricle is a rare tumor included as a novel glioneuronal neoplasm in the 2007 World Health Organization classification of brain tumors.
  • The tumor was gross totally resected.
  • RGNT of the fourth ventricle should be considered in the differential diagnosis of infratentorial lesions in young adults.
  • The prognosis is benign, but relatively aggressive behaviors such as tumor growth, recurrence, and acute deterioration due to intratumoral hemorrhaging can occur.

COS Scholar Universe. author profiles.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: A retrospective review was performed of brain tumor patients presenting to the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) through the last 34 years.
  • RESULTS: Eighteen cases of brain tumors in the first year of life were identified: 12 suptratentorial, eight with benign histology, and six infratentorial all with malignant histology.
  • Gross total resection was achieved in 47% of patients, cerebrospinal fluid diversion was more frequently necessary among infratentorial lesions (p = 0.02), and adjuvant therapy was more utilized for infratentorial lesions (p < 0.01).
  • Mode of presentation, utilization of adjuvant therapy, and survival depend on tumor location and histology, with worse prognosis for infratentorial lesions.

  • Angioleiomyomas are benign neoplasms most often located in the subcutaneous tissue of middle-aged individuals and usually confined to the subcuticular and deep dermal layers of the lower extremities.
  • An intracranial site for this tumor is exceedingly rare, with very few reports documenting locations in the neuraxis.
  • To the authors' knowledge the present case represents the first reported instance of an infratentorial angioleiomyoma.

  • INTRODUCTION: hemangioblastomas are benign neoplasias that are originated in the central nervous system and constitute between 1.5-2.5% of intracranial tumors.
  • The majority of them are infratentorial, mainly affecting the cerebellum (76%).
  • CONCLUSION: the preoperative diagnosis of these neoplasms is difficult because the clinical suspicion is low in supratentorial location.
  • The importance of a correct diagnosis of these histologically benign tumors, lies on the possible association with VHL syndrome and its complications.

  • CONCLUSIONS: The occurrence of tonsillar herniation and syringomyelia in association with a slow growing benign tumor like pilocytic astrocytoma of the cerebellum is uncommon.
  • Surgical extirpation of the tumor restores the normal cerebrospinal fluid circulation at the foramen magnum and produces an excellent outcome.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: Hemangioblastoma is classified as a benign tumor of the central nervous system.
  • In general, the tumors are surgically more challenging, and clinically significant bleeding as well as local tumor recurrence is more common than in intradural hemangioblastomas, mostly because of the frequency of incorrect initial radiographic diagnosis.

  • Neurenteric cysts are "rare benign mass forming developmental abnormalities" that usually affect young adults.
  • Intracranial neurenteric cysts are uncommon but have a tendency to reside in the infratentorial compartment.
  • Of the 3 reported cases of neurenteric cysts with malignant transformation, all were intracranial (2 infratentorial and 1 supratentorial) and extraaxial.
  • Areas of direct transition between typical benign neurenteric cyst epithelia and malignant epithelia (i.e., carcinoma in situ), highlighted by an abrupt change in the Ki-67 proliferative index, were identified, and supported the primary nature of this brain neoplasm.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Supratentorial ependymomas are thought to have a better outcome than infratentorial ependymomas, primarily because of the increased likelihood of achieving a gross total resection in the supratentorial space.
  • Our case report suggests that the improved outcome may be due in part to the biologically benign nature of some supratentorial ependymomas.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Ependymal tumors are classified as ependymoma (benign or low grade) versus anaplastic ependymoma (malignant or high grade).
  • Ependymomas represent 5-10% of intracranial neoplasm in children.
  • The localization was supratentorial in 18, infratentorial in 20, both supra and infratentorial in two patients.
  • Total tumor resection was performed in 20 patients (50%), subtotal in 18 patients (45%), and biopsy only in 2 patients (5%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The majority of complete responders were patients who had total tumor removal.

  • Glioblastoma multiforme (GB) is the most common and most malignant primary intracranial tumor.
  • Of the 577 patients who underwent surgery for newly diagnosed GB (World Health Organization grade IV) between January 1991 and March 2008 at our department, seven had infratentorial GB (iGB) (incidence 1.2%).
  • Because of its rarity and the non-specific radiological features of iGB, it can easily be misdiagnosed as a brain metastasis, ependymoma or even as a benign lesion such as vestibular schwannoma or meningioma.

  • For benign pineal tumors (pineocytoma, meningioma, mature teratomas, symptomatic pineal cysts, etc.) radical surgical resection can be curative.
  • Only 17 of them were the neoplasms originating from pineal body (pineal tumors).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • CASE REPORT: We present a 15-year-old girl with a cystic papillary meningioma extending from the infratentorial to the supratentorial region extracranially.
  • Then a new infratentorial cystic papillary meningioma with a histological change in tumour malignancy was recognised within only 1 year.
  • DISCUSSION: Besides the rare histology of a cystic papillary meningioma in an adolescent, the case is remarkable due to the considerable extent of the tumour and the irregular course with rapid regrowth and change into malignancy after an initially stable and benign course.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • INTERVENTION: A suboccipital craniotomy and supracerebellar infratentorial approach to the cyst was performed at 9 years of age.
  • The finding of a posterior fossa lesion in such cases, even if it is small and appears benign, should precipitate a discussion about the possible relationship between the posterior fossa lesion and the epilepsy.

  • [Title] Long-term relapse-free survival with supratentorial primitive neuroectodermal tumor in an adult: a case report.
  • OBJECTIVE: In adults, supratentorial primitive neuroectodermal tumor (sPNET) is a very rare undifferentiated embryoblastic neoplasm.
  • Prognosis is worse in comparison to infratentorial medulloblastoma.
  • CT- and MRI-scans revealed a right occipital tumor with moderate contrast enhancement.
  • The tumor was completely removed.
  • Microscopy revealed a malignant, highly cellular, poorly differentiated tumor with a desmoplastic component.
  • Up to 20% of tumor nuclei were labeled for Ki-67.
  • Other tumor entities were excluded by immunohistochemistry.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although the prognosis of sPNET is reported to be poor, a small fraction with a rather benign biological and clinical behavior exists.
