Objective: Febrile seizures (FSs) are the most common form of seizures in children. Single short FSs are benign, but FSs lasting longer than 30 min, termed febrile status epilepticus, may result in neurological sequelae. However, there is little information about an intermediary condition, brief recurrent FSs (RFSs). Read More

Spitzoid melanocytic lesions describe a spectrum of pediatric melanocytic proliferations ranging from benign Spitz nevi to malignant spitzoid melanomas typically arising within the first two decades of life. Atypical spitzoid neoplasm (ASN) is a poorly defined category within this spectrum that poses a unique diagnostic challenge due to histologic findings with insufficient atypical characteristics to make the diagnosis of melanoma. This report presents an exceptionally rare case of an ulcerative atypical spitzoid neoplasm mimicking an infantile hemangioma in a two-month-old girl treated with pulse dyed laser (PDL) and surgical excision.

Objective: Patients with fusiform dilation of the internal carotid artery (FDCA) following pediatric craniopharyngioma resection typically have a benign clinical course. We sought to review the neurosurgical literature for FDCA outcomes after resection of these tumors.Methods: Using PubMed, Web of Science, and Cochrane databases we identified surgical series or case reports reporting incidences of FDCA following craniopharyngioma resection.
