demonstrate increased T 1 - and variable T 2 -weighted signal. 15 Infrequently, the cyst contents can be hyperdense, 6 , 13 , 15 mimicking a hemorrhage. It is important to recognize the unusual imaging characteristics of some dermoid cysts because they are managed differently from posterior fossa hemorrhages. Case Report History and Examination This 16-year-old boy presented with a history of chronic headaches that had recently increased in severity and frequency. On physical examination, he was found to have no neurological deficit or midline cutaneous

puncture is not as safe as Dandy believed. The 2 most common complications of ventriculostomy drain placement are infection and hemorrhage. 5 , 9 Studies on incidence, prevention, and management of EVD catheter infection are widespread; multiple techniques and protocols have been presented in an attempt to minimize EVD-related infections, most asserting that the duration of drainage is correlated with infection rates. 5 , 6 , 8 , 9 , 11 In fact, there is a growing trend among medical device manufacturers to produce and prove the efficacy of antibiotic

not detectable on routine imaging studies and that the mechanisms that underlie symptom formation may include tumor-related endolymphatic hydrops and/or intralabyrinthine hemorrhage. 1 , 7 , 10 However, these hypotheses have not been confirmed by imaging studies or clinical experience. We describe a unique case involving a patient with VHL disease and audiovestibular dysfunction who was discovered at the time of surgery to have a small ELST and in whom neuroimaging revealed no abnormal finding other than intralabyrinthine hemorrhage.

C olloid cysts of the third ventricle are benign tumors and a well-known cause of sudden death due to acute obstructive hydrocephalus. 6 , 13 , 18 , 21 , 26 In general, colloid cysts expand due to secretion of an amorphous and protein-rich fluid resulting in obstruction of CSF flow at the foramen of Monro. Although hemorrhage within the cyst can lead to cyst expansion, this condition is extremely rare. To the best of the authors' knowledge, there have been only 9 cases of hemorrhagic colloid cysts reported in the English literature. 3 , 5 , 7 , 8 , 10

arachnoid cysts, postulating temporal lobe agenesis as the cause. All of Robinson's cases of intracranial arachnoid cysts were strictly intradural. Five cases of intradiploic arachnoid cysts have been reported. 3, 11, 14 We describe the case of a patient presenting with hemorrhage into a massive intracranial extradural arachnoid cyst. Case Report This 35-year-old man had the sudden onset of headache, nausea, and vomiting 1 year prior to admission. He was treated with intravenous fluids at a municipal hospital in another city, after which he recovered and was

S tereotactic surgery for movement disorders has recently undergone a resurgence of interest. 2, 8, 12, 28, 36, 43, 44 At many centers MER is now used to enhance the precision of stereotactic procedures. 23 Whether the beneficial information received by recording microelectrode passes outweighs the risk of tissue damage, however, remains controversial. 19 Of particular concern is the induction of intracranial hemorrhage by microelectrode penetration. 26 Hematomas occasionally induce clinical symptoms such as changes in consciousness, hemiparesis, or visual
