Piloerection is rarely described in seizures. This symptom has been most frequently observed in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy and is rarely the principal clinical feature of seizures. No specific etiology of epilepsy associated with pilomotor seizures has been reported. We present the first case of a patient who experienced sudden and transitory(More)
We characterize a consanguineous Egyptian family with an autosomal recessively inherited familial cortical myoclonic tremor and epilepsy. We used multipoint linkage analysis to map the causative mutation to a 12.7 megabase interval within 1q31.3-q32.2 with a log of odds score of 3.6. For further investigation of the linked region in an efficient and(More)

Purpose: To evaluate the accuracy of echo-planar T2*-weighted, compared to MRA and FLAIR in the detection of acute middle cerebral artery (MCA) thrombotic occlusion. Materials and Methods: 47 consecutive patients with acute stroke involving the MCA territory underwent MR imaging within 2 to 76 hours after clinical onset. MR examination included echo-planar(More)
