Neurinomas are tumors that originate from nerve structures, cranial or spinal nerves, and that may have different localization. In the adult, the most frequent forms of neurinomas, more correctly neurogenic tumors, are the schwannoma (originating from Schwann cells) and the ganglioneuroma, (originating from ganglion cells) both of benign nature.

65 million people in the world suffer from epilepsy. Drugs often manage to control the most disabling symptoms of this disease; sometimes, however, it is necessary to intervene surgically to allow patients to obtain a better quality of life. In this article, we will try to clarify when epilepsy surgery is the most appropriate therapeutic option.

Almost every individual in this toxic world is down and out with a certain kind of medical conditions. Some of them are suffering from such complicated and rare medical deformities or an organ failure that they have almost given up on life. More than the despair of not being fit enough, it is the unfortunate fact of not having the right medical and surgical facilities which cast a doom to their hopes. It is even worse when it comes to the most backward countries which are reeling under acute financial crisis which discourages them to induct multi-dollar world-class hospitals.

First, it must be said that "migraine" is not synonymous with a headache. Migraine (also called "migraine" is just one type of headache or "headache" of the more than 150 types described and classified, although it is one of the most frequent and, together with tension headache, is almost 90 % of all cases of headache that comes to our office.

Treatment of brain, spinal cord, and metastatic tumors requires the expertise of neurosurgery, radiation oncology, medical oncology, pathology, radiology, and neurology. The program for tumors of the central nervous system provides a multidisciplinary approach in the management of these tumors. Physicians from different specialties meet weekly on a tumor board to discuss and evaluate treatment options for each patient. Together, they develop the therapeutic strategy adapted to each situation that defines the choice and order of treatments (surgery, radiotherapy, medical treatments) depending on the type of tumor and other factors, such as the patient's state of health. Several treatments can be offered.

Neurosurgery is the medical specialty that deals with the surgical treatment of diseases of the nervous system, namely the brain, spinal cord, spinal nerves and their envelopes that constitute the skull and spine.

Neurosurgery is part of clinical neuroscience and thus works closely with other specialties. Among the most important are neurology (diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of diseases of the nervous system), neuro-oncology (treatment of tumors), Neuroradiology (specialized imaging for the brain and spine), neuro-rehabilitation and orthopedics.

Even people far from medicine understand how responsive and difficult it is to treat a brain tumor, how important it is to choose the right place of treatment and the attending physician in a literal sense life depends on it. The danger of all types of brain tumors, including benign ones, is that developing in a confined space of the skull box, one way or another lead to compression of the brain structures, increased intracranial pressure and the development of extensive and neurological symptoms.

Gliomas are primary tumors that develop in the brain or spinal cord, that is in the central nervous system (CNS), starting from the "cells of the glia." They are quite common and are estimated to comprise about 40% of all CNS tumors. The factors responsible for the onset of the disease are not yet fully known, but it has been shown that the incidence is higher in people suffering from genetic diseases such as neurofibromatosis and tuberous sclerosis.
