Neurology India , 2010,
Abstract: Gangliogliomas are benign lesions that are predominantly temporal in location and present with chronic epilepsy. Intraventricular gangliogliomas are extremely rare and still rarer is intratumoral hemorrhage. Till date only 9 cases of lateral ventricular gangliogliomas have been reported. To the best of our knowledge only 1 case of intratumoral hemorrhage has been reported. We report a rare case of lateral ventricular ganglioglioma with intratumoral hemorrhage in a 27-year-old man.

Abstract: Desmoplastic infantile ganglioglioma is a very rare supratentorial tumor occurring in the first two years of life. A five-month-old female infant presented with recurrent seizures, large head and loss of acquired milestones. Computerized Tomographic Scan of brain showed a large subarachnoid cyst with a solid intensely contrast enhancing tumor in the right temporoparietal region with severe degree of mass effect. Craniotomy and total excision of the tumor followed subsequently by subduro-peritoneal shunt for the extracerebral fluid collection was done. The child made good recovery. Histopathology revealed features of desmoplastic infantile ganglioglioma, viz., marked desmoplastic component with glial and neuronal elements. Immunohistochemistry showed positive staining for glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) with areas of synaptophysin and chromogranin positivity. Desmoplastic infantile ganglioglioma is a rare tumor of infancy, which has excellent prognosis after total excision. No adjuvant therapy is required. This is the first Indian report of desmoplastic infantile ganglioglioma out of less than fifty cases reported worldwide.

Abstract: Gangliogliomas are mixed neuronal-glial type tumors of the central nervous system (CNS). Gangliogliomas are rare tumors that present histological features and biological behavior of low-grade malignancy. Gangliogliomas account for about 0.5% of all CNS tumors, and they generally occur in childhood. Gangliogliomas make up about 8.0% of CNS tumors in children. These tumors are mostly localized in the supratentorial region and often present with seizures. Surgery is the first choice of treatment. We present a case of a 14-year-old male who presented with headache, with vomiting added recently. A left temporal mass was detected during investigations. The mass was totally resected surgically. The pathology was reported as ganglioglioma. The patient is being followed sufficiently in our clinic.

Abstract: Desmoplastic infantile ganglioglioma (DIG) is a rare supratentorial brain tumor occurring mostly before the age of 2 years. It has a good prognosis and total excision of the tumor is curative, necessitating no further treatment. An accurate pathologic diagnosis is crucial. Until now, <60 cases of this tumor type have been reported. Herein, we report a 3-month-old boy with intractable seizure who was found to have DIG after surgery.

Pan African Medical Journal , 2012,
Abstract: The cerebellar location of ganglioglioma (GG) is exceptional. We report one case of a 27-year-old man who underwent an intracranial hypertension syndrome and a static cerebellar syndrome. Brain magnetic resonance images revealed a cyst image in the vermis. Histological study after surgical removal, revealed a ganglioglioma tumor. Through this case and literature review, the authors discuss some epidemiological, histological, clinical, radiological and management features of this very rare tumor.

Primary calcified hydatid of spleen: a case report

Internet Journal of Medical Update - EJOURNAL , 2010,
Abstract: Most splenic cysts are parasitic. Hydatid disease, a parasitic disease, is endemic in Kashmir. Splenic involvement alone in hydatid disease is very rare. It may remain asymptomatic or, by causing pressure due to increasing size on adjacent viscera, may become symptomatic. A non specific presentation always makes diagnosis difficult. A case of hydatid spleen in a young boy who presented with abdominal pain is reported. Radiology complemented with serology made the diagnosis. Hydatid disease should be considered as a differential diagnosis in every patient with a calcified cystic mass of the spleen in endemic areas. KEY WORDS: Calcified hydatid; Spleen; Splenic cyst; Case report

Abstract: context: the lithopedion (calcified abdominal pregnancy) is a rare phenomenon and there are less than 300 cases reported in the medical literature. case report: in this case, a 40 year-old patient had had her only pregnancy 18 years earlier, without medical assistance since then. she came to our hospital with pain and tumoral mass of approximately 20 centimeters in diameter. complementary examinations (abdominal x-ray, ultrasonography and computerized tomography) demonstrated an extra-uterine abdominal 31-week pregnancy with calcification areas. exploratory laparotomy was performed, with extirpation of a well-conserved fetus with partially calcified ovular membranes.

Abstract: gangliogliomas represent only 0.4% of central nervous system neoplasms and 1.3% of brain tumors. they are benign neoplasms with low morbidity and mortality and the patients usually present with seizures, but there has been no adult ganglioglioma with lytic skull lesion. a 49-year-old right handed woman suffering from generalized epileptic seizures was admitted to our hospital. she had also left hemiparesis with 4/5 motor strength. magnetic resonance imaging and immunohistochemical studies revealed who grade ii ganglioglioma. skull x-ray showed the lytic skull lesions. we have to consider gangliogliomas in the differential diagnosis of lytic skull lesions.

Abstract: Posterior fossa gangliogliomas are uncommon primary neoplasms of the central nervous system. Only 34 cases have been reported in the literature; and out of these, only 3 cases have been studied with computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). A case of a 13-year-old boy with cerebellomedullary ganglioglioma is presented with CT, MRI and histopathological findings.

Abstract: Background. Saphenous venous graft (SVG) aneurysm is a very rare but potentially fatal complication of the coronary artery bypass surgery. Case report. We reported a case of 72-year-old man admitted to hospital because of atypical chest pain related to body motions in horizontal position, especially to the left side. Pain was followed by dispnea, palpitations, fatigue, cough, yellow sputum expectorations, as well as elevated temperature. He had had coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery with saphenous vein grafts (SVGs) to the left anterior descending artery (LAD) and right coronary artery (RCA) 27 years earlier. Chest X-ray revealed a poor-defined shadow in the region of the right atrium. A transthoracic echocardiogram revealed an atypical tumorous mediastinal mass near the right atrium and right ventricle that seemed partially calcified on transesophaeal echocardiography (TEE). CT scan confirmed an atypical mediastinal mass in contact with the right ventricle that might be a right ventricle aneurysm, pericardial cyst or SVG aneurysm. Coronary angiography was performed subsequently and it revealed a big saphenous venous graft aneurysm originating from the previous venous graft to the RCA. The aneurysm was resected and a new bypass graft was placed. Histopathology confirmed a true aneurysm of the venous graft. Conclusion. Although SVG aneurysm is a very rare complication of CABG surgery, patients presenting with atypical hilar or mediastinal mass following CABG should always be evaluated firstly for existence of this cardiosurgical complication.
