Strongyloides hyperinfection syndrome due to corticosteroid therapy after resection of meningioma: illustrative case

Víctor Rodríguez Domínguez, Carlos Pérez-López, Catalina Vivancos Sánchez, Cristina Utrilla Contreras, Alberto Isla Guerrero, and María José Abenza Abildúa

corticosteroids in neurosurgery (e.g., chronic subdural hematoma, brain tumor, inflammatory pain, hypopituitarism) for long periods (before surgery, during the perioperative period, and after the surgery), it is important in neurosurgical practice to know the risk factors, epidemiology, and management to avoid delays in diagnosis and prevent the high mortality that this disease entails. 4 , 5 We report a case of Strongyloides hyperinfection syndrome in a patient diagnosed with a large sphenoid planum meningioma and treated with corticosteroids.

BRAF-mutated suprasellar glioblastoma mimicking craniopharyngioma: illustrative case

Bryan Zheng, Belinda Shao, Jennifer Mingrino, Jonathan Poggi, Richard S Dowd, Douglas C Anthony, John E Donahue, and Curtis E Doberstein

Sellar and suprasellar tumors are some of the most common indications for neurosurgical resection, often via a transsphenoidal approach. Pituitary adenomas are known to compose the vast majority of adult cases, followed by craniopharyngioma. Together, these two pathologies compose 90% of suprasellar masses. 1 Less common neoplastic etiologies include atypical meningiomas and low-grade gliomas or metastases of the hypothalamus, optic nerve, or adjacent structures. 2 , 3 Nonneoplastic suprasellar masses can include aneurysms and arachnoid cysts.
