Gliomas are the most common CNS tumours in children and present either as circumscribed tumours or diffusely infiltrative neoplasms. Diffuse gliomas develop both in the cerebral hemispheres and the brainstem and have a poor prognosis. Guidelines for the therapy of these tumours are still debated. In this study, we reviewed the clinical features of 27 consecutive patients with diffuse gliomas admitted to the Department of Paediatrics of CHR Citadelle, University of Liege, between 1985 and 2005. We review their clinical presentation, diagnosis, treatment and outcome with reference to the published literature. [less ▲]

The coexistence of extracranial internal carotid stenosis and ipsilateral intracranial aneurysm is a rare event whose management is controversial. Theoretically, the correction of a significant stenosis of the extracranial internal carotid may lead to an increase in the downstream pressure in the intracranial carotid, and may consequently increase the risk of rupture of the ipsilateral aneurysm. Moreover, dramatic increase of blood pressure is not uncommon after carotid endarterectomy, and may promote aneurysmal rupture. Intracranial surgical correction of a hypoperfused aneurysm down to extracranial carotid stenosis should carry an increased risk of inadequate cerebral flow during procedure, and unspecific postoperative stimulation of platelets aggregation and coagulation may complete obstruction of a subtotal carotid stenosis. We report the cases of two patients successfully treated by a two-stage surgical procedure. In a first step, the intracerebral aneurysms were controlled and electively excluded by clipping. In a second step, carotid endarteriectomies were performed some days later without any neurological complications. Postoperative recoveries were uneventful and six months after these surgical procedures, clinical examination of both patients did not reveal any worsening of the preoperative neurological status.

A case of idiopathic hypertrophic cranial pachymeningitis with an unusual and misleading manifestation is reported. Computed tomography scan, angiographic and magnetic resonance imaging findings were suggestive of multiple meningeal neoplasms and a correct diagnosis was made only after meningeal biopsy. This 44-year-old patient had a previous history of an ill-defined systemic disorder associating episcleritis, erythroderma nodosa and multiple peripheral arthritis. We review previous reports of idiopathic cranial pachymeningitis with emphasis on radiological investigation techniques, histopathology and possible dysimmune mechanisms of pathogenesis. [less ▲]
