The Pineal Gland and Melatonin

The pineal gland is a neuroendocrine gland that synthesizes and secretes melatonin ( M-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine). y The afferent input to the pineal gland is transmitted from the retinal photoreceptors through the SCN and sympathetic nervous system. The circadian rhythm of melatonin is controlled by the SCN but is strongly entrained by light. The two effects of light are, first, to regulate melatonin secretion in accordance with diurnal light-dark cycles and, second, to suppress melatonin if given in brief intense pulses. Melatonin secretion increases during the night, reaching a peak level between 2 00 and 4 00 am, then gradually falls during the latter part of the night, and is present at very low levels during the day. Exogenous melatonin has been used with some success to avoid jet lag and may be useful for treatment of phase-shifted sleep and sleep disturbance due to shift work. Melatonin is available through health food stores and has received strong public attention. However,...

Linkage of Cardiac LR Asymmetry and the LR Asymmetry of the Central Nervous System

Onic markers of head and CNS asymmetry. However, three examples of neural or cephalic L-R asymmetry have been identified to date. The first is the expression of mouse and chicken lefty1 within the left half of the floor plate, the structure that forms the ventral midline of the embryonic spinal cord (Meno et al. 1997 Schlange et al. 2001). The second is the observation of left-side-specific expression of the cerberus (cCer) gene in head mesenchyme in chicken embryos (Zhu et al. 1999). Finally, the third example, which has been mentioned before, is the existence of molecular and morphological asymmetries within the epiphysis and habenular nuclei of the di-encephalon. To date, the molecular asymmetries of the diencephalon (left-side expression of cyclops, pitx2, and leftyl, and later, otx5 and crx) have only been seen in the zebrafish (Rebagliati et al. 1998b Sampath et al. 1998 Bisgrove et al. 1999 Campione et al. 1999 Thisse and Thisse 1999 Essner et al. 2000 Liang et al. 2000 Gamse...

Clinical Features

The clinical syndromes associated with pineal region tumors relate directly to normal pineal anatomy as well as tumor histology. The pineal gland develops during the second month of gestation as a diverticulum in the diencephalic roof of the third ventricle. It is flanked by the posterior and habenular com-misures in the rostral portion of the midbrain directly below the splenium of the corpus callosum. The velum interpositom is found rostral and dorsal to the pineal gland and contains the internal cerebral veins that join to form the vein of Galen.31,55 The principal cell of the pineal gland is the pineal parenchymal cell or pineocyte. This cell is a specialized neuron related to retinal rods and cones. The pineocyte is surrounded by a stroma of fibrillary astrocytes that interact with adjoining blood vessels to form part of the blood-pial barrier. The pineal gland is richly innervated with sympathetic noradrenergic input via a pathway originating in the retina and coursing through...

Pediatric Overuse Injuries

Proximal humeral osteochondrosis is a somewhat more rare entity, thought to result from repetitive mechanical stress across a young physis predisposed to vascular injury. Pain is the presenting complaint, localized to the epiphysis, and radiographs will reveal fragmentation of the head. The process may be similar to avascular necrosis and seems to have a poorer prognosis than Little Leaguer's shoulder.

Tumor Histology And Histogenesis

Diverse types of tumor arise from the pineal gland and surrounding structures. They are classified into pineal (gland) origin and extrapineal tumors. Pineal and extrapineal origin tumors differ in histologic type. Those of pineal origin are germ cell tumors and pineal parenchymal cell tumors. Extrapineal tumors arise from the surrounding neural or mesenchymal structures and include astrocytomas, meningiomas, ependymo-mas, and choroid plexus papillomas. Therefore a wide variety of tumor histologic types can occur in the pineal region.

Pineal Parenchymal Tumors

Pineal parenchymal tumors are derived from pineal parenchymal cells within the pineal gland. They originate from pineo-cytes, which possess neurosecretory and photosensory functions. These tumors may differentiate into several cell lines, such as neuronal, astrocytic, retinoblastomatous, and mesenchymal components. Immunohistochemical or ultrastructural studies may disclose cellular differentiations and neurosecretory and photosensory functions. Pineal parenchy-mal tumors are classified into pineoblastoma and pineocytoma, depending on the cellular differentiations. Pineoblastomas are poorly differentiating malignant tumors and belong to the group of primitive neuroectodermal tumors (PNETs). Pineocytomas, in contrast, are differentiated to pineal parenchymal cells and are clinically benign. Some parenchymal tumors may have mixed components of pineoblastoma and pineocytoma.

Tumors of Glial and Miscellaneous Cell Origin

Glial tumors arise almost invariably from the glial tissue elements intimately surrounding the pineal gland. The most common pathologic type of glial tumors is astrocytoma, which often originates in the posterior thalamus or the midbrain. True astrocytomas of pineal gland origin are extremely rare, though glial cell tumors can occur in the pineal gland because astro-cytes are normally present there.

Diagnostic Studies Neuroimaging

Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are widely available and have revolutionized diagnosing pineal region tumors. Associated abnormalities, such as hemorrhage or calcifications, may be better appreciated with CT. MRI, however, is extremely useful for identification of tumor location and extension. The superior depiction of anatomic structures with MRI, on sagittal images in particular, demonstrates the relationship between the pineal gland, the quadrigeminal plate, and other structures. MRI often enables the determination of the pineal or extrapineal origin of the tumor, because the latter does not involve the pineal gland. The involvement of the midbrain, the thalamus, or other surrounding structures is often clearly determined. Tumor multiplicity or dissemination in the ventricular or subarachnoid spaces is also determined by these neuroimaging techniques.

Computed Tomography

Calcifications normally occur in the pineal gland. A normally calcified pineal gland is shown on CT scans of children as young as 672 years. The rate of occurrence of pineal calcifications visible on CT scans is 8 to 10 for children ages 8 to 14 years, 30 at age 15 years, and 40 at age 17 years.60 Therefore the presence of calcification in children younger than 6 years is abnormal and needs to be investigated for a neoplastic process.

Stereotactic or Ventriculoscopic Biopsy

Biopsy for pineal region tumors can be done by a stereotactic method. However, stereotactic procedures have a serious potential to result in hemorrhagic complications, because tumors originating from the pineal gland are surrounded by veins of the galenic system. Also, pineoblastomas and certain germ cell tumors may be extremely vascular. In my experience with 10 stereotactic biopsies of pineal region tumors, three patients (germinoma in two and pineoblastoma in one) had a serious hemorrhage into the tumor and ventricle, although other authors have reported no major complications.

A311 The cerebral hemispheres cerebrum

The diencephalon is located centrally within the forebrain (the anterior or front part of the brain). It consists of the thalamus, hypothalamus, and epithalamus, which together enclose the third ventricle (a sac containing cerebrospinal fluid found within the brain which is connected to the lateral ventricles in the cerebral hemispheres and to the fourth ventricle in the brain stem). The thalamus acts as a grouping and relay station for sensory inputs (inputs such as pain, touch, and temperature from the periphery), ascending to the sensory cortex and associated areas. It also mediates motor activities, cortical arousal or wakefulness, and memories. The hypothalamus, by controlling the autonomic (involuntary) nervous system, is responsible for maintaining the body's homeostatic balance, which is commonly referred to as maintaining the internal environment ('the milieu interior'). This is the environment in which the cells function by maintaining the appropriate balance of...

Clinical Presentation Of Central Nervous System Atrt

A predilection for the cerebellopontine angle. They may also arise in the spinal cord, pineal gland, and suprasellar region.7,15 A posterior fossa location is more common in children younger than 3 years old (70 ), as opposed to older children (33 ) the few examples in adults are almost exclusively in the cere-brum.10,15 A small group of children have both renal and CNS rhabdoid tumors, which most likely represent metachronous tumors and are probably due to a germline mutation in the hSNF5 gene (see the following discussion of AT RT's molecular pathology).

Knee pain in adolescents

Knee pain in adolescents has many etiologies and the clinician must also rule out rare entities (e.g. tumor, referred pain) to establish a thorough diagnosis. Although meniscal injuries are less common in children than in adults, several recent reports indicate an increasing incidence of meniscal lesions in children and adolescents, especially those in competitive sports. De Inocencio i0i investigated the distribution of mus-culoskeletal pain in children. The knee was the most affected joint (33 ), followed by other joints (e.g. ankle, wrist, elbow, in 28 ), soft tissue pain (i8 ), heel pain (8 ), hip pain (6 ) and back pain (6 ). Symptoms were caused by trauma in 30 overuse syndromes in 28 (e.g. chondromalacia patellae, mechanical plantar fasciitis, overuse muscle pain) and normal skeletal growth variants (e.g. Osgood-Schlat-ter syndrome, hypermobility, Sever's disease) in i8 of patients. Sources of chronic pain about the knee may include tendinitis, apophysitis, patellofemoral...

Pharmacological Neuroanatomy

Serotonin-containing cells are concentrated in the pineal gland but are also found in discrete groups of cells in the midline regions of the pons and midbrain. The caudal cells project to the spinal cord and brain stem, while the rostral cell groups project to the limbic forebrain system, thalamus, neostriatum, and cerebellum. Raphe neurons receive dopaminergic input from the substantia nigra and the ventral tegmental area, norepinephrine input from the locus coeruleus, and other afferents from the hypothalamus, thalamus, and limbic forebrain. In the past decade, extensive pharmacological laboratory work has identified numerous serotonergic subsystems, including 5-HT1A-F , 5-HT2A-C , 5-HT3 , 5-HT4 , 5-HT5A-B , and 5-HT7 . More recently, specific receptor antagonists have also been developed that allow more refined pharmacological and neurochemical analysis of behaviors that relate to serotonin.

Musculoskeletal Examination

Knee pain in an adolescent is usually the result of trauma. Partial avulsion of the tibial tubercle associated with a painful swelling in that area is called Osgood-Schlatter disease. This common condition is seen more frequently in pubertal boys and is usually self-limited. Knee pain may also be referred from the hip and result from a slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE). Movement of the hip into external rotation as the leg is flexed at knee and hip is very suggestive of SCFE. SCFE is fairly common during the pubertal growth spurt and is especially common in obese adolescents.

During Swallowing

Hypothalamus Pineal gland Pituitary gland Hypothalamus Pineal gland Pituitary gland Pineal gland The pineal gland is situated deep inside the brain. Its precise function has yet to be clarified. However, the gland is known to produce a hormone called melatonin, which is thought to be associated with the daily cycle of sleep and waking.

Radiologic Diagnosis

Germinomas are isointense on Tl-weighted MRI studies and slightly hyperintense on T2 with strong homogeneous enhancement.73,79 Calcification surrounds the pineal gland as the germinoma grows in contrast to the intratumoral calcium within a pineocytoma.21 Intratumoral cysts can exist as well.17 In contrast to germinomas, teratomas can contain tissue from all three germinal layers, resulting in a heterogeneous signal. They are well-circumscribed benign tumors characterized by their heterogeneity, multilocularity, and irregular enhancement. Contrast enhancement of teratomas can also be ring enhanced. In some cases a well-circumscribed teratoma can have areas of

Pathologic Features

Non-germ cell tumors of the pineal region arise from the pineal gland or its surrounding tissue. The rarity of pineal cell lesions and the lack of an extracranial correlate have complicated the classification of these tumors. Currently, pineal parenchymal tumors are divided into high- and low-grade variants based on the extent of differentiation. The primitive pineoblastoma and the differentiated pineocytoma exist at opposite ends of the spectrum with intermediate-grade variants between. Russell and Rubinstein have described a more specific classification such that pineoblastomas include types without differentiation types with pineocytic differentiation and types with neuronal, glial, or retinoblastic differentiation.60 Similarly, pineocytomas have been divided into types without further differentiation, types with only neuronal differentiation, types with only astrocytic differentiation, and types with divergent neuronal and astrocytic differentiation (i.e., the ganglioglioma).60...

Prognosticators

Anatomic neuroimaging sometimes provides insights about recovery. Single-word and sentence level comprehension appear especially likely to improve by 1-2 years in the global aphasic whose frontoparietal infarct extends only to the isthmus of the subcortical temporal lobe, compared to having a lesion that includes at least half of Wernicke's area (BA 22).348 On an axial CT scan, this sparing corresponds to the temporal lobe seen from the level of the maximum width of the third ventricle to its roof, often visualized with the pineal gland. Wernicke's aphasics also tend to have better recovery of auditory comprehension by 6 to 12 months if less than half of Wernicke's cortical area is infarcted.349 These patients may develop a milder fluent aphasia, such as a conduction or anomic aphasia.

Pathophysiology

The acromion can be anteriorly hooked. The acromion can be divided into three categories according to shape flat, bent and hooked (Fig. 6.6.20). Persons with a hooked acromion have a much higher risk than persons with a flat acromion for developing impingement, simply because the hook reduces the subacromial space. Instead of a hook, the acromion can host an osteophyte on the anterior undersurface. In rare cases the distal acromial epiphysis (in the antero-lateral corner of acromion) does not fuse, giving rise to

Ren Descartes

According to Descartes, the soul is principally in touch with the movement of the spirits in the body via the pineal gland in the brain through which the spirits always flow. The majority of the experiences in the soul are instances of awareness of such spirit movements. So, the experiences of seeing, hearing, feeling pain, feeling hunger, feeling fear, being angry are all forms of awareness of the movements of bodily spirits through the pineal gland. In Cartesian terminology these experiences all have the same immediate cause, i.e., the movement of bodily spirits. The ways in which these experiences differ according to Descartes is first, in their exciting cause, i.e, that which caused the movements of the spirits in the first place (what we shall later call events) and second, in their objects, i.e., what they are about. What Descartes is saying here is that Susan sees the bear and this causes movements of her bodily spirits to her limbs, thus causing her to turn and run. In...

Normal Findings

Normally calcified structures are the pineal gland and the glomus of the choroid plexus in the trigone of the lateral ventricle. Calcification may be seen throughout the choroid plexus, including the temporal horns and the outlets of the fourth ventricle. Occasionally, the habenula (directly anterior to the pineal gland) may show calcification. The arteries of older patients are not uncommonly calcified. Calcification of the globus pallidus can be physiological and becomes more prominent with advancing age. Calcification in dural structures, including the walls of venous sinuses, is seen as a normal variant. Excessive calcifications of vascular or dural structures may indicate an underlying pathological process.

Type III

The epiphysis is separated from the metaphysis along the physis, without an associated fracture through the metaphyseal or epiphyseal bone. The injury goes directly through the cartilaginous physeal plate. These injuries can be displaced or nondisplaced. A nondisplaced Salter-Harris I fracture will have a normal-appearing growth plate on radiographs, but patients will have pain on palpation directly over the growth plate. Stress radiographs or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may be necessary to reveal the injury. Displaced type I injuries are typically easy to reduce because the periosteal attachment remains intact. These injuries have an excellent chance of normal healing with full growth of the injured bone. Despite this, growth delay and growth arrest are complications of growth plate injuries, which should be discussed with the patient and family. Salter Harris V fractures are crushing injuries in which an axial load compresses the epiphysis into the metaphysis, squeezing the...

Orthopedic Disorders

Overweight children have an increased risk of slipped femoral capital epiphysis, genu valga, pes planus, and scoliosis (Speiser et al., 2005). In adults, an association between obesity and degenerative joint disease (DJD), particularly of the knee, is related in part to mechanical factors resulting in increased compressive forces on the knee. Obesity-related cytokine production has been associated with a chronic inflammatory state promoting osteoarthritis. Obesity is associated with knee weakness and balance problems, increasing the risk of falls. Functional impairment from obesity in elderly persons has been linked to these factors (Messier, 2008).
