Abstract

The coexistence of glial high grade tumors (glioblastoma, anaplastic astrocytoma) and cerebral aneurysms is common but the association with optic glioma is rare. The treatment of these associated lesions is problematic. A 36-year-old white woman presented to our institution with recurrent attacks of headache. Her preoperative radiological studies revealed a lesion of her left optic nerve with extension to the optic chiasma, an aneurysmatic dilatation of the left carotid bifurcation, a second aneurysm on the left of her middle cerebral artery, and a third one on her right anterior cerebral artery in the A2 tract. A left pterional approach was used to remove the tumor and clip the three aneurysmatic dilatations in a single stage. We report this unusual case of optic glioma associated to multiples aneurysms and review the pertinent literature. An adequate knowledge of this association is mandatory to plan the correct approach to avoid complications.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 05 April 2016.
All research outputs
#3,866,338
of 7,499,955 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Medical Case Reports
#523
of 1,388 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#147,846
of 271,808 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Medical Case Reports
#22
of 45 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 7,499,955 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 27th percentile – i.e., 27% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,388 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.2. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 51% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 271,808 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 35th percentile – i.e., 35% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 45 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 42nd percentile – i.e., 42% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
