disturbance that our patient noted could be attributed to a mood disorder or to the mass effect of the lesion; the symptom did not interfere with her daily life and the location of her aneurysm on the dominant middle cerebral artery was felt to preclude surgery. There was neither clinical nor arteriographic evidence that the aneurysm had caused any significant degree of hydrocephalus. Search of the literature revealed no other such case documented angiographically. The clinical course of this patient suggests that this relatively asymptomatic giant cerebral aneurysm

striatum of patients with Parkinson's disease, 113 serotonin precursors have been used to treat this affliction. Tryptophan seems to improve mood disorders and depressive symptoms 42 in these patients, but 5HTP worsens the motor symptoms. 28 Numerous observations suggest that serotonin metabolism is altered in patients with migraine headache, 5, 169 and have stimulated attempts to treat migraine with serotonin precursors. Tryptophan (2 to 9 gm/day) and 5HTP (200 mg/day) prevented headache as effectively as did methysergide. 158, 170 This therapy has not yet been

, lasting many months. 9, 22 During the past few years, we have reported on the frequency, course, clinical manifestations, and clinical pathological correlates of mood disorders following TBI. 6, 12–15 Major depression occurred in 17 of 66 patients (26%) with acute TBI, and was associated with both premorbid vulnerabilities such as histories of psychiatric disorder and poor social functioning, and specific lesion locations, in particular left dorsolateral frontal cortex and left basal ganglia. This depression was not linked to the degree of physical or intellectual

lateral ventricles and the third ventricle. Postoperative Course The patient had an uneventful postoperative course and was discharged from the hospital on postoperative Day 4. One year after surgery, he has experienced no more hallucinations and his behavior is within normal limits. He has received no drugs except methylphenidate for his attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (DSM IV code 314.01). His psychologist has found no further evidence of psychosis or mood disorder. Discussion The etiology of choroid plexus papilloma remains unknown

-induced motor complications, despite optimal antiparkinsonian medications. The daily dose of levodopa equivalent was 1000 mg; therefore, bilateral STN stimulation was proposed. In parallel, the patient had a personal and familial history of mood disorders. His mother had suffered from unipolar depression and committed suicide. He had a dysthymic temperament 1 and experienced a hypomanic episode in 1983 after the death of his parents. At that time, he had exhibited an exaggerated activity of running, for several hours daily. As PD progressed, excessive fishing activity
