  • [Title] Development of a pilocytic astrocytoma in a dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor. Case report.
  • Dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumors (DNETs) are benign supratentorial tumors based in the cerebral cortex.
  • When tumors thought to be DNETs are not resected due to their proximity to eloquent cortex, lack of change in the clinical and neuroimaging features over time supports the diagnosis of DNET.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Radiosurgery for large-volume (> 10 cm3) benign meningiomas.
  • The average tumor volume was 17.5 cm3 (range 10.1-48.6 cm3); the average tumor margin dose was 15.1 Gy (range 12-18 Gy); and the mean follow-up duration was 70.1 months (range 12-199 months).
  • RESULTS: Tumor control was 99% at 3 years and 92% at 7 years after radiosurgery.
  • Patients with supratentorial tumors experienced a higher complication rate compared with patients with skull base tumors (44% compared with 18%) (hazard ratio 2.9, 95% CI 1.3-6.7, p = 0.01).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The morbidity associated with SRS for patients with benign meningiomas > 10 cm(3) is greater for supratentorial tumors compared with skull base tumors.
  • Whereas radiosurgery is relatively safe for patients with large-volume skull base meningiomas, resection should remain the primary disease management for the majority of patients with large-volume supratentorial meningiomas.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Patients with Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) have an increased risk of developing neoplasms.
  • The most common brain tumors, found in 15%-20% of NF1 patients, are hypothalamic-optic gliomas, followed by brainstem and cerebellar pilocytic astrocytomas.
  • These tumors generally have a benign nature.
  • NF1 patients are predisposed to a 5-fold increased incidence of high-grade astrocytomas, which are usually located in supratentorial regions of the brain.

  • [Title] Supratentorial cortical ependymoma: report of three cases.
  • OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE: Extraventricular ependymomas account for 50% of supratentorial ependymomas.
  • Some tumors may extend to the gray matter reaching the pial surface, but pure cortical ependymomas are uncommon.
  • Here, we report three patients with supratentorial intracortical ependymoma.
  • The three lesions represented 2.5% of all ependymal tumors and 21.4% of supratentorial tumors operated on during the study period.
  • All tumors were low grade.
  • CONCLUSION: Cortical ependymomas seem to behave as benign tumors amenable to surgical removal.

  • OBJECTIVE: Dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumors (DNTs) are clinicopathologically unique tumors.
  • They are usually located within the supratentorial cortex, most often in the temporal lobe.
  • During a 7-year follow-up period, the tumor did not recur.
  • CONCLUSION: Unlike diffuse gliomas, such as oligodendrogliomas and central neurocytomas, DNTs are benign lesions with a favorable prognosis after surgical resection.

  • [Title] [A clinicopathologic study of dysembryoplstic neuroepithelial tumor].
  • OBJECTIVE To study the clinicopathologic features, radiologic findings, treatment modalities and prognosis of dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor (DNT).
  • On magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study, the tumor was hypodense on T1 and hyperdense on T2.
  • All but 2 cases were supratentorial and intracortical in location.
  • Ten cases were treated by complete surgical excision and the remaining 8 tumors were partially excised.
  • None of the cases showed tumor recurrence after operation.
  • Histologically, all tumors demonstrated a multinodular architecture and were intracortical in location, sometimes with extension into the white matter.
  • The tumor was formed by an admixture of oligodendrocyte-like cells, mature neurons and astrocytes, with obvious microcystic changes.
  • CONCLUSIONS: DNT is a benign tumor (corresponding to WHO grade I) that can be cured by surgical excision, despite sometimes incomplete tumor removal.

  • Supratentorial dermoid cysts have been more frequently reported over the past decade and they are known to have a predilection for the cavernous sinus.
  • Dermoid tumors originating from the cavernous sinus are usually interdural and thus, presentation with ophthalmoplegia is uncommon.
  • They are congenital benign tumors and are believed to originate from ectopic inclusion of epithelial cells during closure of the neural tube during embryonic development.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Meningeal melanocytoma is a rare, benign melanotic tumor of the leptomeninges, which occurs anywhere in the cranial or spinal regions but most commonly in supratentorial and thoracic spine regions.
  • The literature on this entity consists of case reports; therefore, there is no agreement on the most effective therapy of this tumor, although total excision seems to be the best therapeutic option.
  • The tumor was removed subtotally through cervical laminotomy followed by rapid improvement of most neurological deficits.
  • This tumor was unusual because of its very hyperintense homogenous signal on T1-weighted images, invasion of the arachnoid membrane, and extension into the neural foramina.
  • Black dots on the surface of the cord were thought to represent an organized blood clot until the frozen section suggested a melanocytic tumor.
  • DISCUSSION: We discuss the distinction of meningeal melanocytoma from other melanocytic tumors of the leptomeninges.
  • CONCLUSION: Melanocytic tumors should be considered in the differential diagnosis when a hyperintense lesion of the leptomeninges is identified on T1-weighted images or a very dark mass similar to charcoal or organized hematoma is found in the surgical field.
  • The best management is complete tumor resection, but radiotherapy is reserved in cases of subtotal resection and multiple lesions.
  • Locally aggressive nature of tumor and possibility of recurrence warrant regular follow-up.

  • 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.

  • [Title] Malignant transformation of an intraaxial-supratentorial neurenteric cyst - case report and review of the literature.
  • Neurenteric cysts are "rare benign mass forming developmental abnormalities" that usually affect young adults.
  • Of the 3 reported cases of neurenteric cysts with malignant transformation, all were intracranial (2 infratentorial and 1 supratentorial) and extraaxial.
  • We describe a 58-year-old female with a supratentorial-intraaxial lesion that is consistent with a neurenteric cyst exhibiting malignant transformation into an invasive mucinous papillary cystadenocarcinoma.
  • 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.
  • To our knowledge, this would be the first reported case of malignant transformation within a supratentorial-intraaxial neurenteric cyst.

  • Pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma has been generally conceived to be in a benign nature, showing a relatively favorable prognosis.
  • Apoplectic attack attributable by massive hemorrhage in this distinct form of the supratentorial glioma is an exceedingly rare event.
  • CT and MRI disclosed the presence of a tumor composing of massive intra-tumoral hemorrhage filling the cyst associated with mural nodule in the left frontotemporal lobe.
  • The unusual hemorrhagic presentation of this typically benign entity is extremely rare and is thought to be intra-tumoral bleeding in this case, since subarachnoid hemorrhage was absent.

  • INTRODUCTION: hemangioblastomas are benign neoplasias that are originated in the central nervous system and constitute between 1.5-2.5% of intracranial tumors.
  • Supratentorial lessions are rare, being in these cases the frontal, parietal or temporal lobes the most common locations.
  • In 30% of the cases, these tumors are associated with von Hippel Lindau syndrome (VHL).
  • She was diagnosed of supratentorial hemangioblastoma.
  • 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Desmoplastic infantile gangliogliomas (DIG) are uncommon supratentorial brain tumors with a usually good prognosis despite an aggressive radiological appearance that typically occurs in infants below the age of 24 months.
  • DIGs are exclusively supratentorial, generally have a voluminous size, and are partially cystic.
  • Total surgical removal is sufficient for the treatment of these tumors, and no chemotherapy or radiotherapy is indicated if complete resection is achieved.
  • Non-infantile variants of this biologically benign intracranial neoplasm are rare; only 15 cases of non-infantile DIGs have been reported in the literature.

  • Ependymomas represent 5-10% of intracranial neoplasm in children.
  • In this study, demographic data and the treatment results of pediatric patients with ependymal tumors, treated in a single institute, is reported.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between 1989 and 2001, 40 (22 M/18 F) previously untreated patients with a median age of 5.5 years (3 months-15 years), of histologically proven ependymal tumors (except ependymoblastomas) were referred to the Institute of Oncology, University of Istanbul.
  • 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.

  • OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE: Meningeal melanocytomas are rare benign neuro-ectodermal tumors arising from melanocytic cells in the leptomeninges.
  • CLINICAL PRESENTATION: We report on the rare case of a 55-year-old male patient with a large supratentorial meningeal melanocytoma mimicking a convexity meningioma and a smaller, similarly dura based lesion in the posterior fossa.
  • INTERVENTION: Tumor control to date was achieved by surgery of the large lesion and radiosurgery of the small lesion.
  • CONCLUSION: Complete tumor resection may be advantageous and second or recurrent lesions may be managed by repeat surgery or stereotactic radiosurgery.

  • [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.
  • 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.

  • [Title] Intracranial tumors in first year of life: the CHEO experience.
  • INTRODUCTION: One seventh of pediatric brain tumors are diagnosed in the first year of life.
  • 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.
  • Median age of presentation differed by lesion location (p = 0.05) and glial tumors were most common.
  • Raised intracranial pressure was more than twice as prevalent with posterior fossa lesions (p < 0.01) with equivalent likelihood of increasing head circumference (p = 0.74), whereas seizures were more frequent with supratentorial tumors (p = 0.04).
  • Among eight surviving infants, seven had supratentorial tumors, five survived to adulthood, and six are functionally independent.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Brain tumors in the first year of life represent 4.8% of patients treated at CHEO.
  • Mode of presentation, utilization of adjuvant therapy, and survival depend on tumor location and histology, with worse prognosis for infratentorial lesions.
