DAVFs can be either continuous or at a distant location from the meningioma, with different pathophysiologic mechanisms involved in each situation.Case Description: We report the case of a 74-year-old woman presenting with left-sided hemiparesis secondary to a large right convexity meningioma, associated with a noncontiguous Borden 3 DAVF. Both lesions were treated surgically in the same setting. The patient improved after surgery, and postoperative imaging showed complete resection of the meningioma and absence of recurrence of the fistula at 4 years.Conclusion: To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of concomitant surgical treatment of a meningioma and noncontiguous DAVF. ]]> <![CDATA[Craniocervical junction arachnoid cyst]]> https://www.researchpad.co/article/Nfd23d0e1-545c-4459-a1e0-440ed49faae6

We report the case of a 33-year-old patient who underwent fenestration of a large symptomatic cranio-cervical junction arachnoid cyst.

<![CDATA[Comparison of whole-body diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance and FDG-PET/CT in the assessment of Hodgkin’s lymphoma for staging and treatment response]]> https://www.researchpad.co/article/5ba4cfab40307c59cb891038

Computed tomography (CT), 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET), and hybrid FDG-PET/CT are the most commonly used diagnostic tools for the initial staging and treatment response assessment of lymphomas [1]. The aim of this report is to compare the correlations between functional imaging markers derived from FDG-PET/CT and whole-body, diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) in a young patient affected by Hodgkin’s lymphoma (HL).
