Two cases of clinically and electromyographically proven ethylene oxide neuropathy occurred among 12 workers at the Lecco Hospital Sterilization Center. Cessation of exposure to the gas, which had lasted for two years, was followed by swift remission of the symptoms and complete normalisation of the EMG record at follow-up six months later. The paucity of(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the possible influence of arteriovenous fistula (AVF) on nerve conduction velocity in patients on intermittent hemodialysis and its relevance to the pathogenesis of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). The data on 22 patients showed no statistically significant differences in the electrographic parameters considered. This(More)
A case of sporadic, idiopathic, paroxysmal kinesigenic choreoathetosis is described. The frequent attacks triggered by the initial phase of voluntary movement responded well to treatment with diphenylhydantoin. The nosological, etiopathogenetic, clinical and therapeutic aspects of paroxysmal choreoathetosis are discussed and the literature reviewed. Viene(More)
Although neurological complications of hypothyroidism are well recognized, scanty data, to the best of our knowledge, are available about peripheral neuropathies in this condition. The electrographic studies so far performed are nearly all devoted to the well known association myxoedema-carpal tunnel syndrome. Our data concern two patients affected by(More)
