Decompressive Hemicraniectomy for Malignant Middle Cerebral Artery at the Regional University Hospital of Besançon, France: Mortality and Functional Outcome at Six Months and 12 Months

Malignant infarction of the middle cerebral artery territory is a serious clinical form with a mortality rate of approximately 80%. Several large studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of decompressive hemicraniectomy in reducing mortality and functional impairment following malignant infarction of the middle cerebral artery. The aim of this work was to assess the mortality and functional prognosis of patients who underwent decompressive hemicraniectomy surgery for malignant infarction of the middle cerebral artery from 2009 to May 2016 at the Regional University Hospital of Besançon.

Synchronous Contralateral Benign and Malignant Parotid Gland Tumors: Case Report

Multiple primary parotid gland tumors are rare, accounting for 1.7-5% of all parotid neoplasms, and the occurrence of bilateral parotid gland tumors is even lower (1.3-3.5%). These tumors can be synchronous or metachronous and the most common histologic type of bilateral parotid gland tumors is Warthin tumor (79.2-90%). Combined benign and malignant lesions and bilateral neoplasms of different histologic types are even less frequently found.

Malignant Soft Tissue Sarcoma at the Site of Corticosteroid Injection in a Dog

An 11-year-old spayed female dog was presented for a large mass on the left proximal pelvic limb. The mass appeared three months prior to presentation in the location of a previous corticosteroid injection, Kenalog (0.05 mg/kg triamcinolone, CAS# 76-25-5). No vaccinations or injections had been previously given in this area. The mass spanned from the left stifle to the coxofemoral joint and was firm, circular, non-moveable, and diffusely mixed within the musculature of the thigh. A left external complete hemipelvectomy was performed. Histopathology was consistent with a Grade III fibromyxosarcoma. The dog died naturally at home five months after surgery. This is the first account of association of a corticosteroid injection with formation of a fibromyxosarcoma in a dog.

Palmoplantar Malignant Melanoma in the Brazzaville University Hospital

Palmoplantar Malignant Melanoma (PPMM) is a tumor that arises from the melanocytes of the palmoplantar location. It is usually curable when treated surgically if diagnosed early. Objective: To assess the clinical presentation and treatment outcome of PPMM in Brazzaville Patients and Methods: This is a cross sectional study of thirteen years (January 1998-December 2011). 121 patients with PPMM who received the 3 treatment types were included: Surgery, chemotherapy and combination of surgery and chemotherapy.

Late Cerebellar Vermis Metastasis of Breast Cancer Presenting as Pseudo-Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is a common peripheral vestibular disease; however intracranial lesions can mimic it. Intractable, not self-limiting paroxysmal positional vertigo sustained by intracranial tumors is called malignant paroxysmal positional vertigo (MPPV) while, when radiological imaging shows vascular cerebellar vermis lesions and there are atypical findings on the Dix-Hallpike maneuver, we speak about pseudo-benign paroxysmal type (pseudo-BPPV).

Persisting Cough as the Single Presenting Symptom of an Intrathoracic Tumor in a Nine-Month-Old Child with Adenovirus Airway Infection

We report on a nine-month-old girl who presented with persisting cough, and diminished ventilation of the left hemithorax. Viral pneumonia was suspected after Adenovirus detection by PCR, but chest X-rays showed a persistent shadowing of the left hemithorax and persistent coughing despite clinical improvement. Because of the discrepancy between clinical and radiological signs further investigations by ultrasound and CT scan were performed, which visualized an intrathroracic tumor. Histopathology confirmed diagnosis of a teratoma.
