Very few cases have been reported of long segment tanycytic ependymoma with a cyst associated to them. Tanycytic ependymoma is a rare form of ependymoma that usually arises in the intramedullary spine. On histology it has ependymal pattern of cells with abundant fibrillary stroma within which are scattered oval to spindly cells, with round to ovoid and elongated band nuclei and close resemblance to schwannoma and astrocytoma. In our case tumor was associated with syrinx and was of tanycytic variety. A 38-year-old female presented with numbness and tingling of right hand and shoulder and right leg with diminished sensation and loss of joint position and vibration in left leg. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a tumor from C7 to T5 level that compressed the spinal cord extensively and had a reactive cyst associated with it. The diagnosis of intra dural intra medullary spinal cord tumor was made, and a total tumor excision was performed with C7 to T6 laminectomy and multi segmental midline myelotomy. After surgery, the patient's numbness and tingling in right hand disappeared. Right leg developed mild motor weakness and sensory disturbances, transient bowel, bladder disturbance. Detailed immunohistology examinations confirmed the diagnosis of tanycytic ependymoma. No further treatment was needed. A unique case of cervicodorsal spinal tanycytic ependymoma was presented in a 38 year old lady. Gross total resection was achieved. The extent of post operative recovery relies on finding the plane between the tumor and the cord. A detailed histological investigation with utilization of immunohistochemical stains and ultrastructural microscopy is necessary to distinguish tanycytic ependymoma from other neoplasm such as schwannoma and pilocytic ependymoma.

The success of root canal treatment depends on thorough disinfection of the root canal system, and to provide fluid impervious seal which in turn halt the progress of the periapical infection. The oral microorganisms from the degenerated pulp tissue are responsible directly or indirectly for most of the periapical lesions. For the treatment of these lesions there are surgical and non-surgical methods. Surgical removal of the periapical lesion without proper root canal disinfection and obturation will result in improper healing of lesions whereas in non-surgical root canal therapy the lesions heal if proper cleaning, shaping and obturation of root canal are done. This clinical case series highlights the follow-up results of three cases demonstrating the resolution of periapical lesion through nonsurgical approach and confirms that periapical lesions respond favorably to non-surgical treatment

The cystic degeneration of the meniscus, or the so-called meniscus cyst, is an
independent nosological unit with well-defined symptoms and a characteristic pathologo
anotomical picture [1,2]. Information about this disease is almost not found in the educational
literature, and only a few works have been published in the periodical foreign literature. The
question of the nature of pathomorphological changes in meniscus cysts is still under
discussion [3,4].

European Journal of Molecular & Clinical Medicine, 2020, Volume 7, Issue 8, Pages 4641-4646

Background: The present study was conducted to assess distribution of odontogenic cysts
in Indian population.
Materials & Methods: 280 odontogenic cysts was retrieved from the department.
Hematoxylin/eosin-stained slides of OCs or nonspecific cyst diagnoses were evaluated and
Results: Common odontogenic cysts were adult gingival cyst (15), COC (9), dentigerous
cyst (21), paradental cyst (9), OKC (42), lateral periodontal cyst (1), glandular odontogenic
cyst (1), radicular cyst (168) and residual cyst (14). Maximum cases were seen in age group
21-30 years (80). The difference was significant (P< 0.05).
Conclusion: Maximum cases were seen in age group 21-30 years and common
odontogenic cysts were radicular cyst and OKC.
