  • Sixth cranial nerve palsy and ipsilateral trigeminal neuralgia caused by vertebrobasilar dolichoectasia. [Journal Article]
  • AJAm J Ophthalmol Case Rep 2018; 10:229-232
  • Pham T, Wesolowski J, Trobe JD
  • CONCLUSIONS: This is the tenth reported case of dolichoectasia causing sixth cranial nerve palsy, but only the second to occur with dolichoectatic trigeminal neuralgia. It provides more detailed imaging that previously reported cases. Review of reported cases of dolichoectatic compression of cranial nerves indicates that vascular decompression may be effective for trigeminal neuralgia, but is not indicated for dolichoectatic sixth nerve palsy, which will resolve spontaneously or can be effectively managed with prism or eye muscle surgery.
  • Ocular involvement in neurolymphomatosis. [Journal Article]
  • AJAm J Ophthalmol Case Rep 2018; 10:148-151
  • Liu KC, Hennessey MA, … Proia AD
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our patient is only the second histological demonstration of ciliary nerve involvement by NL, and the first, to our knowledge, of primary NL spreading secondarily from the ciliary nerves into the choroid. Our patient demonstrates that NL, though rare, should be included in the differential diagnosis of ocular cranial nerve palsies and ophthalmoplegia.
  • Brain-stem hemangioblastomas: The seemingly innocuous lesion in a perilous location. [Journal Article]
  • NINeurol India 2018 May-Jun; 66(3):779-796
  • Joseph J, Behari S, … Jaiswal AK
  • CONCLUSIONS: Significant improvement is achievable in neurological status in patients following successful extirpation of a brain-stem hemangioblastoma, despite a turbulent perioperative period. Leaving tumour capsule adherent to the brain-stem often helps in preserving brain-stem function. Postoperatively, the patients should be monitored for their respiratory and lower cranial nerve status to prevent aspiration pneumonitis.
  • Zika virus and Guillain-Barré syndrome in Bangladesh. [Journal Article]
  • ACAnn Clin Transl Neurol 2018; 5(5):606-615
  • GeurtsvanKessel CH, Islam Z, … Endtz HP
  • Previous studies have associated Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) with Zika virus (ZIKV) outbreaks in South America and Oceania. In Asia, ZIKV is known to circulate widely, but the association with Guil...
  • Intraparotid facial nerve schwannoma: two case reports and a review of the literature. [Journal Article]
  • AOActa Otorhinolaryngol Ital 2018; 38(1):73-77

  • CONCLUSIONS: Schwannomas are rare benign tumours that arise from Schwann cells. The most known and studied is the intracranial vestibular schwannoma, even if it is not the most frequent. More often schwannomas arise from peripheral sensitive nerves, and the vagous is most involved among the cranial nerves. Intraparotid schwannomas account for just 10% of all facial involvement, so they are an extremely rare localisation. At present, there are less than 100 cases described in the literature. We performed a retrospective analysis of parotidectomy in two Italian hospitals and present two cases of intraparotid schwannoma and a review of the literature. In the first case, we performed a parotidectomy with a stripping of tumour from the nerve. In the other case, a hypoglossal-facial neurorrhaphy was performed. Follow-up was 24 months in the first (House-Brackmann II degree in temporal-ocular and III in facial-cervical branches) and 30 months in the second case (House-Brackmann III degree in both temporal-ocular and facial-cervical branches). Preoperative diagnosis of facial nerve schwannoma is a challenge; however, it is extremely important since post-operative palsy is common and often higher grade. Unfortunately, schwannoma has similar radiologic finding as more common pleomorphic adenoma and often FNAC is not helpful. Due to its rarity and benign nature, there is debate in the literature on the need for surgical removal. Wait-and-see is a valid option, but may could give problems in secondary surgery. Stripping or near-total removal can be useful in cases of limited involvement of the nerve. Neurorrhaphy can provide good functional results when facial sacrifice is needed.
