frontal vertex lump. He did not complain of the lesion, and it was not painful upon examination. The mass was somewhat fluctuant and apparently fixed to bone. There was no change in its diameter during a 4-month period of observation. The child had a history of uncomplicated cleft palate, and lip repair was performed at 1 year of age. There was no history of significant head trauma; a fetal scalp monitor was not used during the child's delivery. Examination Radiological studies were obtained, including plain skull films, computerized tomography, and magnetic

distal access catheter. A 5 mm × 10–cm Viabahn stent graft was deployed distally, and then a second 5 mm × 10–cm Viabahn stent graft was deployed proximally overlapping with the first one over a short segment. An 8 mm × 10–cm Smart stent was deployed to ensure apposition of both stents throughout the stent construct and to prevent disconnection at the junction of the stents. A final angiogram showed no residual filling within the aneurysm ( Fig. 2 ). Postoperative Course No postprocedural complications were encountered. Postoperatively, the child was started on 2.5 mg

single layer of endothelium, 19 and the surrounding tissue has been known to contain calcium. 8 We are reporting the case of a child with a giant cystic cavernoma. She presented with progressive enlargement of the head, which has not been described before in association with proven cavernous hemangiomas. Only two previous reports of cystic cavernous hemangioma visualized on computerized tomography (CT) scanning are available. 18, 23 Our patient underwent total surgical extirpation of the mass, with subsequent cure. Case Report This 3-year-old girl was

L ittle is known about the metabolic response or nutritional needs of the adolescent or child with severe head trauma. In contrast, the metabolic response and the nutritional requirements of the head-injured adult have been fairly well documented. 7, 19, 20, 28 Adult patients display increased oxygen consumption, increased urinary nitrogen excretion, and rapid weight loss. The purpose of this study was to examine whether children with head injury have metabolic responses similar to those of adults and to attempt to determine their nutritional requirements

a child. In the present report we show the efficacy of ICG videography, emphasizing the significance of the slope of average intensity and the circulation time by FLOW 800 visualization in pediatric spinal cord hemangioblastoma. Case Report This 19-month-old child had gradually suffered from gait disturbance and was referred by his pediatrician to the Department of Neurosurgery at Fukuoka University. Spinal MRI showed a Gd-enhanced spinal cord tumor and congestive myelopathy ( Fig. 1A ). A T5–L2 laminectomy was performed, and the dural sac was opened

M eningiomas are rare in children. 2–4 In a total of 1760 brain tumors in children, only 19 (a little over 1%) meningiomas were found. 7 Meningiomas are usually intradural. Ectopic meningiomas have been rarely reported. 1, 5, 8 True epidural meningiomas arising in relation to the outer surface of the dura of the cerebral convexity have not been reported. We report a case of an epidural meningioma, weighing 1890 gm, in a 5-year-old child and discuss its possible origin. Case Report A 5-year-old girl was admitted on April 26, 1957, with a swelling on

T here have been many reports on intracranial aneurysms occurring in children, 5–9, 13–15, 17, 18 the largest individual series being Matson's. 11 In most cases subarachnoid hemorrhage was the first evidence of the aneurysm. This report of a 6-month-old child is unusual in that fever of unknown origin and diabetes insipidus were the presenting symptoms. Case Report A 6-month-old boy was admitted to the Boston Floating Hospital for evaluation of fever of unknown origin. He had first become ill at the age of 2 months with vomiting of undetermined cause

L esions of the sciatic nerve trunk are rare. Most are acute, resulting from stab wounds, improperly placed intramuscular injections, or as complications of hip surgery or anticoagulant therapy. 4 Chronic lesions of the sciatic nerve are distinctly unusual and are likely to be misdiagnosed as lesions of the nerve root or lumbosacral plexus. Moreover, if foot deformity ensues from a sciatic nerve lesion in a child, then a developmental orthopedic anomaly or developmental abnormality of the spinal cord or of the cauda equina, such as meningomyelocele or

child was taken to the operating room for resection of a posterior fossa mass, which was found on pathological analysis to be an isolated cryptococcoma without other systemic disease or other CNS manifestations of cryptococcosis. A brief review of the related literature is also presented. Case Report History and Examination This 11-year-old boy with no significant medical history presented with a 2-week history of progressively worsening headaches and emesis. The headaches were diffuse, were not related to position or time of day, and did not improve
