Question
Asked 10th Jul, 2016

Is anyone aware of unilateral only Paccioni granulations in endocranial vault? Is this related to any disease/syndrome?

I observed such an anomaly on a dried skull, and wonder if related to any neuro-anatomical subsequent/associated anomaly. Thanks+

Would you please explain the locations?
Because confluens sinium is usually deviated to one side other than to be located to planum medianum. Thats why if your observations are located near to eminentia cruciformis, than it is normal to see Paccioni granulations on one side

Controlla se sono  associate ad allargamento dell'impronta dei vasi meningei, in tal caso potrebbe essere causato da un meningioma..

Allargamento impronta vasi meningei (maggiore spessore e profondità) rispetto al normale. Maggiore profondità e grandezza delle foveole o granulazioni del Pacchioni .oltre l'interno del cranio guarda anche se alterazioni arrivano tavolato esterno; tutti questi caratteri possono indicare presenza di tumore meningi (meningioma).

Rubini 2008 elementi di paleopatologia; Ortener and Putschar identification of pathological  conditions in human skeletal remains; per altra bibl. guarda Minozzi and Canci Archeologia dei resti umani.
