Bannayan-Riley-Ruvalcaba syndrome with progressive spinal epidural lipomatosis


Toelle, Sandra; Poretti, Andrea; Scheer, Ianina; Huisman, Thierry; Boltshauser, Eugen (2012). Bannayan-Riley-Ruvalcaba syndrome with progressive spinal epidural lipomatosis. Neuropediatrics, 43(4):221-224.

Abstract

We present a case study of an 11-year-old boy with Bannayan-Riley-Ruvalcaba syndrome (BRRS) with macrocephaly, lipomatosis, and penile freckles. BRRS was confirmed by a germline mutation in the phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) gene. Repeated spinal imaging demonstrated an extensive progressive spinal epidural lipomatosis, compressing and dislocating the dural sac, so far without neurological deficits. Patients with BRRS are probably a risk for progressive spinal epidural lipomatosis and should be carefully monitored by neurological examinations and eventually neuroimaging follow-up studies.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
