Posterior epidural migration of extruded lumbar disc fragment mimicking epidural mass: A case report

Interdisciplinary Neurosurgery

introduction: Posterior epidural migration of the lumbar disc fragment is a very rare pathological entity. The pathomechanisms remain unclear.Case presentation: The authors present the case of a 78-year-old Germans male with refractory low back pain. Contrast-MRI showed an epidural mass at the level L1 – 2 with rim contrast enhancement. The preoperative diagnosis based on the clinical and history of the patient was most probably sequestrated disc fragment migrated posteriorly; di ff erential diagnosis included all other causes of posteriorly located epidural mass. A left interlaminar approach L1 – 2 was performed. A sticky, capsulated, semi-hard and mobile mass was removed from the posterior epidural spaces. Intraoperative a lateral till the ventral disc fragments were found. An annular tear was found and discectomy was performed. Pathological examination showed a disc tissue with degenerative changes. The patient was pain-free until the last follow-up at 5 months. Conclusions: Correlation between relevant clinical information and radiological finding may help to detect the posterior migrated disc fragment

Primary spinal glioblastoma multiforme presenting with leptomeningeal gliomatosis and subarachnoid hemorrhage: A case report

Interdisciplinary Neurosurgery

We present a rare case of spinal GBM with leptomeningeal gliomatosis at the time of diagnosis involving the Brainstem presenting clinically with typical subarachnoid hemorrhage in a 39-year-old female. • At the admission, cerebral angiography, CT scan and MRI of the brain showed no abnormality except for not requiring therapy Isolate small developmental venous anomaly (DVA li.-frontal). Due to worsen of the headache, a new MRI 3-Tesla scan of the brain and total neural axis has been performed, which demonstrated an unclear lesion intraspinal intradural with contrast enhancement in the level C4/5 ventro-lateral, T2/3 dorso-lateral, L1/2 and L3 with diffuse leptomeningeal contrast until brainstem (pons). • An open Biopsy was done after laminectomy T2. The clinical situation had been dramatic worsened with blindness and paralysis in upper limb both side.

Primary osteosarcoma of the breast after complete resection of a metaplastic ossification: a case report

J Med Case Rep

Background: Primary osteosarcoma of the breast is an extremely rare lesion. The pathogenesis of primary osteosarcomas is controversial. Case presentation: We present the case of a 63-year-old white German woman who presented with a mass in her right breast after routine screening. The core needle biopsy showed ductal hyperplasia with metaplastic ossification of the breast tissue. Complete excision of the lesion with standard safety margins was performed. The final diagnosis was metaplastic ossification. Three years later, our patient presented again with a painless lump in her right breast about 15 Ă— 8 Ă— 7 cm, extending to the lower part of axilla with skin ulceration. Pathologic diagnosis was osteosarcoma. Positron emission tomography and computed tomography and staging showed no other lesions. Modified radical mastectomy and axillary lymph node dissection was performed, no lymph node metastases were found. Conclusions: Our case highlights the possibility that primary osteosarcoma of the breast may develop after complete resection with the classical safety margin for metaplastic ossification. Long-term follow-up after resection of this benign breast lesion is required.
