Clinicopathological features and microsurgical outcomes for giant pediatric intracranial tumor in 60 consecutive cases.
Our study has also shown the accuracy of AMIC Ray-Scan 64 PET/CT and safety of CK stereotactic radiosurgery treatment of intracranial tumors in PLAGH.
Some authors report that prolonged use of mobile phones increases the risk of intracranial tumors, especially glioma and acoustic neuroma, i.e., vestibular schwannoma.
Thus, individuals who present symptoms of dementia prior to 50 years of age should be carefully assessed before given a definitive diagnosis because primary intracranial tumors do not produce specific clinical manifestations that would lead to easy discovery.
Benign and malignant intracranial tumors and vascular malformations can cause disability with neurological deficits and death in the patients who harbor them.
Intracranial chondromas are rare, benign, cartilaginous tumors that constitute about .2 to .3% of all primary intracranial tumors. (1,2) They usually originate from the bones of the skull base, at the sphenoethmoidal and spheno-occipital regions, but very rarely can also arise from other intracranial, extraosseous sites like the dura mater, the brain parenchyma or from within the ventricles.
Dermoid cysts that represent 0.04%-0.6% of all intracranial tumors are benign lesions of embryological origin and rupture of these tumors is very rare (5,6).
Intracranial tumors during pregnancy were first described in 1898 [1].
This revolutionary concept of Adler achieved substantial success far beyond the practice of radio-surgery at the time, which had restricted radio-surgery for the treatment of intracranial tumors and critical organs.
We confirmed that [sup.18]F--FLT-PET uptake is limited in healthy mice but enhanced in the intracranial tumors. Our data further demonstrate that [sup.18]F--FLT-PET imaging usefully reflects the inhibition of tumor by RT and correlates with changes in biomarker expression.
Albumin accumulation in the U87 mg intracranial tumors in mice also exhibited a significantly higher accumulation when examined in another human GBM cell line (HGL21) used for intracranial xenograft formation [25].
Meningiomas are presumed to originate from arachnoid cells and constitute approximately 30% of all primary intracranial tumors. (1,2) Multiple meningiomas comprise 2.3% to 8.9% of all intracranial meningiomas that occur outside the setting of neurofibromatosis type 2.
