Cervical perineural cyst masquerading as a cervical spinal tumor.

Tarlov (perineural) cysts of the nerve roots are common and usually incidental findings during magnetic resonance imaging of the lumbosacral spine. There are only a few case reports where cervical sym...

Tarlov Cysts: Endoscope-Assisted Obliteration of the Communication with the Spinal Subarachnoid Space.

Background and Objective The physiopathology of Tarlov or perineural cyst (PC) symptoms is unknown, but probably its filling and distention with spinal cerebrospinal fluid makes them symptomatic. Th...

Microsurgical excision of symptomatic sacral perineurial cyst with sacral recapping laminectomy : a case report in technical aspects.

Perineurial cysts (Tarlov cysts) are lesions of the nerve root that are often observed in the sacral area. There is debate about whether symptomatic perineurial cysts should be treated surgically. We...

Cervical thymic cyst mimicking laryngocele.

Cervical thymic cysts are nearly 0.3% of all congenital cervical cysts. Thymic cysts are asymptomatic, but they rarely complain of dysphagia or tracheal obstruction symptoms. A soft, mobile, and painl...

Iatrogenic cerebrospinal fluid leak and intracranial hypotension after gynecological surgery.

Perineural cysts are common lesions of the sacral spine. They have rarely been reported in a presacral location, leading to their misdiagnosis as a gynecological lesion. The authors report the second...

Clinical Trials [648 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Ultrasound Guidance Versus Electrical Stimulation for Perineural Catheter Insertion

This research study is to determine the relative times for perineural catheter placement with the use of ultrasound versus electrical stimulation. The perineural catheter is placed next t...

Management of Incidentally Discovered Pancreatic Cysts

The purpose of this study is to determine the natural history of pancreatic cysts and to determine if these cysts can be effectively treated with a less invasive therapy (ethanol injection...

Insertion Distance of Femoral Perineural Catheters in the Context of Major Knee Surgery.

This study is designed to compare femoral perineural catheter insertion distances, in order to help determine which is the best for pain relief after knee surgery. Hypothesis: the quality...

Detection of Renal Malignancy of Complicated Renal Cysts

The aim of this study was to show additional diagnostic criteria of computed tomography (CT) scan to diagnose and predict the detection and recurrence of cystic renal cell carcinoma in the...

Brain Tissue Swelling and Seizure Activity in Inactive Cysticercosis

This study will examine what causes seizures in patients with cysticercosis (pork tapeworm infection). A better understanding of this could lead to improved methods of controlling or prev...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Perineurial cysts commonly found in the SACRAL REGION. They arise from the PERINEURIUM membrane within the SPINAL NERVE ROOTS. The distinctive feature of the cysts is the presence of spinal nerve root fibers within the cyst wall, or the cyst cavity itself.

Cysts found in the jaws and arising from epithelium involved in tooth formation. They include follicular cysts (e.g., primordial cyst, dentigerous cyst, multilocular cyst), lateral periodontal cysts, and radicular cysts. They may become keratinized (odontogenic keratocysts). Follicular cysts may give rise to ameloblastomas and, in rare cases, undergo malignant transformation.

Benign unilocular lytic areas in the proximal end of a long bone with well defined and narrow endosteal margins. The cysts contain fluid and the cyst walls may contain some giant cells. Bone cysts usually occur in males between the ages 3-15 years.

A true cyst of the PANCREAS, distinguished from the much more common PANCREATIC PSEUDOCYST by possessing a lining of mucous EPITHELIUM. Pancreatic cysts are categorized as congenital, retention, neoplastic, parasitic, enterogenous, or dermoid. Congenital cysts occur more frequently as solitary cysts but may be multiple. Retention cysts are gross enlargements of PANCREATIC DUCTS secondary to ductal obstruction. (From Bockus Gastroenterology, 4th ed, p4145)

Saccular lesions lined with epithelium and contained within pathologically formed cavities in the jaw; also nonepithelial cysts (pseudocysts) as they apply to the jaw, e.g., traumatic or solitary cyst, static bone cavity, and aneurysmal bone cyst. True jaw cysts are classified as odontogenic or nonodontogenic.
