Sample text

The mural nodule usually abuts the pial surface. The cyst is not a true epithelium lined cyst but consists of fluid surrounded by non-neoplastic, compressed parenchyma. Spinal hemangioblastomas are often associated with prominent, associated fluid/cystic spaces and/or syringohydromyelia. Endolymphatic sac tumors in these patients are often low-grade papillary or cystic adenocarcinomas, and have a unique appearance involving the posterior portion of the petro temporal bone with areas of T1 shortening with destructive/ expansile appearance.

Patients may present with one or all of the symptoms. Patients who do best with shunting are those with little or mild dementia. NPH is often underdiagnosed. Diagnostic clues include disproportionate enlargement of the ventricles relative to the sulci, compression of high convexity sulci against the inner table at the vertex, upward bowing of the corpus callosum, decreased height of the interpeduncular cistern, and confluent periventricular increased T2 signal (transependymal CSF resorption). Sometimes you will see gaping Sylvian fissures with otherwise normal sized sulci.

Craniosynostosis results in an abnormal head/skull shape. Remember that an abnormal head/skull shape at birth may not be abnormal but a result of fetal head position and birth trauma (molding). Postnatally, infant positioning may present with lambdoid flattening. Parents can be instructed to keep the head off the flattened area and to re-check in 6–8 weeks. If the flattening were positional, it should improve. A rare complication of craniosynostosis can be elevated ICP, which is more common with multiple craniosynostosis.
