Neuroimaging of spine tumors.

Handb Clin Neurol 2016 ;136:689-706

Dent Neurologic Institute, Amherst, NY, USA. Electronic address:

Intramedullary, intradural/extramedullary, and extradural spine tumors comprise a wide range of neoplasms with an even wider range of clinical symptoms and prognostic features. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), commonly used to evaluate the spine in patients presenting with pain, can further characterize lesions that may be encountered on other imaging studies, such as bone scintigraphy or computed tomography (CT). The advantage of the MRI is its multiplane capabilities, superior contrast agent resolution, and flexible protocols that play an important role in assessing tumor location, extent in directing biopsy, in planning proper therapy, and in evaluating therapeutic results.

Role of preoperative embolization of intramedullary hemangioblastoma.

Neurochirurgie 2017 Nov 25;63(5):372-375. Epub 2016 May 25.

Service de neuroradiologie interventionnelle, AP-HP, Hôpital Bicêtre, Le Kremlin-Bicêtre, 78, rue du General-Leclerc, 94275 Kremlin-Bicêtre cedex, France; Service de neurochirurgie, AP-HP, hôpital Bicêtre, Le Kremlin-Bicêtre, 78, rue du General-Leclerc, 94275 Kremlin-Bicêtre cedex, France.

Object: Hemangiobastomas (HB) are rare lesions accounting for 1 to 5% of all spinal cord tumors. Due to their hypervascular nature, an angiography may be proposed preoperatively in order to identify tumoral vascular anatomy. Preoperative embolization may be indicated to reduce intraoperative bleeding, thus facilitating tumor resection and minimizing surgical risk. Read More

Intramedullary spinal cord tumors constitute 8% to 10% of all primary spinal cord tumors. The clinical presentation of primary spinal cord tumors is determined in part by the location of the tumor, and in nearly all clinical instances pain is the predominant presenting symptom. Motor disturbance is the next most common symptom, followed by sensory loss. Read More

Contiguous haemangioblastomas of the brain and spine in a patient of Von Hippel-Lindau disease.

BMJ Case Rep 2013 Jan 22;2013. Epub 2013 Jan 22.

Department of Neurosurgery, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease is an inherited, autosomal-dominant syndrome caused by heterozygous germline mutations in the VHL gene, and predisposing to the development of benign and malignant tumours and cysts in multiple organ systems involving eyes, kidneys, pancreas, liver and central nervous system. The responsible tumour suppressor gene for VHL disease is in chromosome 3p25. We are presenting a case of a patient with both cerebellar as well as spinal haemangioblastoma in addition to polycystic pancreas. Read More

Spinal cord tumors: new views and future directions.

Neurol Clin 2013 Feb;31(1):241-68

Dent Imaging and Neuro-Oncology Center, Dent Neurologic Institute, Buffalo, NY 14226, USA.

Spinal cord tumors are uncommon neoplasms that, without treatment, can cause significant neurologic morbidity and mortality. The historic classification of spine tumors is based on the use of myelography with 3 main groups: (1) extramedullary extradural, (2) intradural extramedullary, and (3) intradural intramedullary. This chapter focuses on intramedullary spinal cord tumors (ISCTs), with an emphasis on new diagnostic imaging modalities and treatment options. Read More

Orthostatic hypotension following resection of a dorsal medullary hemangioblastoma.

Neurocrit Care 2012 Apr;16(2):306-10

Division of Critical Care Neurology, Mayo Clinic, Mayo W8-B, 200 First Street SW, Rochester, MN 55905. USA.

Background: Orthostatic hypotension (OH) is an uncommon, but not rare manifestation of dorsal medullary lesions which has less commonly been described as arising de novo or significantly worsening following surgical resection of the lesion.

Methods: We present a case and review the English literature regarding dorsal medullary lesions and post-operative OH, focusing on the population of patients who develop new or significantly worsened OH after surgery with the hope that this information can be used to counsel patients.

Results: A 34-year old hypertensive woman was diagnosed with Von Hippel-Lindau syndrome during evaluation for headache. Read More
