ABSTRACT
An 8-year-old girl was referred to our clinic for the management of acute comitant esotropia. Her family described an acute esodeviation on the right eye which has increased as time passed. At the first presentation, the angle of esodeviation was 30 prism diopters at distant and near fixation. Neurological examination did not reveal any additional pathological findings. Her brain MRI revealed a 7x6x5 cm mass in the posterior fossa with probable diagnosis of medulloblastoma or pilocytic astrocytoma. The patient was urgently referred to a neurosurgery clinic. Cure was not achieved with medical treatment and six months later she had died. As a conclusion, when a child presents with comitant esotropia without any other neurological sings and symptoms, the clinician should bear in mind that it can be the first sign of a intracranial tumor.

    Dermoid cysts are rare intra-cranial tumors commonly located in the subarachnoid spaces. Intra-axial dermoid cysts are even rarer. Intracranial dermoid cysts are generally slow-growing and benign; symptoms result from the mass effect of these cysts. Rupture of intracranial dermoid with spillage...

    We assess diffusion-weighted MR images in the differential diagnosis of intracranial brain tumors and tumor-like conditions. Heavily diffusion-weighted (b = 1100 or 1200 s/mm2) axial images were obtained with single-shot echo-planar technique in 93 patients with pathologically confirmed various...
