Department of Radiology, University of Chicago, Chicago, IL, USA.

Imaging studies of the hands and fingers are common, and radiologists are generally comfortable with traumatic and degenerative conditions which arise frequently in daily practice. However, a variety of common and uncommon soft-tissue tumors also occur in the hand, the appropriate diagnosis of which can be a source of confusion for both clinicians and radiologists. These lesions often have overlapping imaging characteristics; however, a structured approach can help provide a focused differential diagnosis and impact further workup and management. Read More

Department of Neurosurgery, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut, USA; Department of Therapeutic Radiology, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Symptomatic peritumoral edema (PTE) is a known complication after radiosurgical treatment of meningiomas. Although the edema in most patients can be successfully managed conservatively with corticosteroid therapy or bevacizumab, some medically refractory cases may require surgical resection of the underlying lesion when feasible. Laser interstitial thermotherapy (LITT) continues to gain traction as an effective therapeutic modality for the treatment of radiation necrosis where its biggest impact is through the control of peritumoral edema.

We aimed to provide a basis for the clinical study of acoustic neuroma through investigating the ability of temporal gap detection in acoustic neuroma patients and comparing the abilities with those in people with normal and impaired hearing. Twenty-two patients with confirmed acoustic neuroma, 30 normal hearing patients and 16 patients with sensorineural hearing loss were enrolled in this study, and the interval threshold for awareness of each group was tested. The mean temporal gap detection test(TGDT) threshold of the normal hearing group was (3. Read More

Schwannomas developing in cervical-dorsal region are rare benign neoplasms which are emerges leisurely remains asymptomatic some times and functionally inactive tumours. Giant Schwannomas extending over two or more vertebral levels have been documented and attempts have been made to classify these in available literature, however inadequate. Read More

Schwannomatosis with mediastinal vagal schwannoma is rare. A 71-year-old man presented with multiple mediastinal tumors by a regular check-up. A chest computed tomography showed well-defined round tumors along with the 3rd intercostal nerve and in the left upper mediastinal area. Read More

Concurrent Schwannoma and Intraneural Ganglion Cyst Involving Branches of the Common Peroneal Nerve.

World Neurosurg 2020 Mar 21;135:171-172. Epub 2019 Dec 21.

Department of Neurosurgery, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, USA. Electronic address:

Benign peripheral nerve sheath tumors are well known to neurosurgeons and a relatively commonly seen pathology. Intraneural ganglion cysts, once thought to be rare and poorly understood, are increasingly recognized in clinical practice and better understood based on the advent of high-resolution imaging. There are few reports of different nerve lesions in the same anatomic location appearing concurrently. Read More

Utility of preoperative electrophysiological testing of the facial nerve in patients with vestibular schwannoma.

PLoS One 2019 23;14(12):e0226607. Epub 2019 Dec 23.

Department of Neurosurgery, Medical University of Warsaw, Warsaw, Poland.

Purpose: The aim of this study was to analyze the utility of various preoperative electrophysiological tests of the facial nerve CNVII in predicting CNVII function after vestibular schwannoma surgery.

Methods: This retrospective study included 176 patients who had preoperative facial nerve electroneurography and electrically evoked blink reflex testing. We defined the following variables: axonal degeneration of CNVII (AD-CNVII), trigeminal nerve damage (D-CNV), disturbances in the short-latency pathway of the blink reflex (D-BR), and any changes in electrophysiological test results (A-EMG).

Recurrent transmural tracheal schwannoma resected by video-assisted thoracoscopic window resection: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Dec;98(51):e18180

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, the Third Affiliated Hospital, Sun Yat-sen University.

Rationale: Primary schwannoma is extremely rare in the trachea, and its optimal treatment has not yet been established. Previous literature have indicated that traditional resection by thoracotomy is an effective surgical procedure but with huge trauma, and endoscopic excision is a minimally invasive surgical method but with possibility of recurrence. Window resection was usually utilized for selected patients with trachea invasion by thyroid carcinoma, but video-assisted thoracoscopic window resection for trachea schwannoma has not been reported previously.

An interdisciplinary approach for laparoscopic removal of a large retroperitoneal pelvic schwannoma attached to vital vessels: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Dec;98(51):e18149

Department of Vascular Surgery, Azienda Ospedaliera Brotzu, Cagliari, Italy.

Rationale: Retroperitoneal schwannomas are very rare and may grow very close to major abdominal vessels. Since the surgical approach to the retroperitoneal space may be complex due to surrounding vital organs, including major vessels, laparoscopic surgery is challenging and has only been recently adopted. Here, we report a case of laparoscopic resection of a large retroperitoneal schwannoma attached to large vital vessels. Read More

Natural reduction in acute intratumoral hemorrhage of spinal schwannoma in the cauda equina.

Nagoya J Med Sci 2019 Nov;81(4):701-705

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine, Nagoya, Japan.

A 58-year-old woman presented with acute pain in her back and her left leg. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed an intradural schwannoma with an intratumoral hemorrhage between the lower L4 vertebra and L5/S1 disk level. A follow-up MRI after one month revealed that the tumor had regressed from the middle of L5 to the L5/S1 disk level. Read More

A VEGF receptor vaccine demonstrates preliminary efficacy in neurofibromatosis type 2.

Nat Commun 2019 12 17;10(1):5758. Epub 2019 Dec 17.

Department of Neurosurgery, Keio University School of Medicine, 35 Shinanomachi, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, 160-8582, Japan.

The anti-VEGF antibody bevacizumab has shown efficacy for the treatment of neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2). Theoretically, vascular endothelial growth factor receptors (VEGFRs)-specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) can kill both tumor vessel cells and tumor cells expressing VEGFRs. Here we show an exploratory clinical study of VEGFRs peptide vaccine in seven patients with progressive NF2-derived schwannomas. Read More

Surgical Outcomes of Intratemporal Facial Nerve Schwannomas According to Facial Nerve Manipulation.

J Int Adv Otol 2019 Dec;15(3):415-419

Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head - Neck Surgery, Asan Medical Center, Seoul, Korea, Republic Of.

Objectives: The aim of this study was to evaluate the preoperative and postoperative facial nerve (FN) function in patients with FN schwannoma (FNS) and analyze the duration of preoperative facial palsy according to the preoperative and postoperative facial function.

Materials And Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 29 patients with FNS who underwent surgery. We evaluated the FN function according to the type of FN manipulation and location of the anastomoses in the cable nerve graft, and we also analyzed the duration of facial palsy according to the facial function before and after surgery.
