Abstract:A 23-year-old male presented with a parasellar lesion which was suspected as disseminated intracranial germ cell tumour. The diagnosis of germinoma was made using immunohistochemistry from percutaneous trans-foramen ovale biopsy. This report describes the role of neuronavigation-guided biopsy through the foramen ovale for lesions in the parasellar region.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
