Platelet activating factor is elevated in cerebral spinal fluid and plasma of patients with relapsing–remitting multiple sclerosis
TLDR
Findings suggest that PAF is a significant mediator of BBB injury in the early stages of MS, rather than a marker of its progression and severity. Expand
Diagnosis, staging, and treatment of juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma (JNA)
TLDR
Nineteen patients with juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma were surgically treated with different techniques from January 1968 through December 1985, and the most common symptom was nasal obstruction. Expand
Lesion detection in MS patients with and without clinical brainstem disorders: magnetic resonance imaging and brainstem auditory evoked potentials compared.
TLDR
Brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEP), as compared with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), has a greater capacity and a lower cost in disclosing brainstem plaques both in MS patients with symptoms or signs of actual brainstem involvement and in clinically silent ones, making it a useful technique for the neurologist.

Cerebral hemorrhage and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura during ticlopidine treatment: case report.
TLDR
Even if thrombocytopenia is a rare occurrence with ticlopidine therapy, it is stressed that platelets must be repeatedly monitored. Expand
True aneurysm of the middle meningeal artery. Case report.
TLDR
Histological examination and neuroradiological findings confirm the suspicion that this is a case of true aneurysm of the middle meningeal artery. Expand
Superficial siderosis of the central nervous system and anticoagulant therapy: a case report
TLDR
A 78-year-old man in oral anticoagulant therapy, who presented neurosensory hearing loss, gait ataxia and spastic paraparesis is reported, and magnetic resonance imaging suggested the diagnosis of superficial siderosis of the central nervous system, without an evident bleeding source. Expand
Moyamoya syndrome in only one of two identical twins. Case report.
TLDR
The authors describe moyamoya syndrome in only one of two identical twins, suggesting that it may be an acquired form, but the cause of the pathology remains obscure. Expand
Lower cranial nerve palsy produced by internal carotid artery dilatation. Report of two cases
TLDR
The association between lower cranial nerve disturbances and internal carotid artery abnormalities is probably more common than was thought and the pathogenesis of the damage to the cranial nerves may differ from one case to the next. Expand
[Hypopituitarism secondary to suprasellar giant carotido-ophthalmic aneurysm. Normalization of the hypophyseal function after neurosurgical depression of the aneurysm].
TLDR
The preoperative finding of a preserved pituitary integrity with acute and prolonged endocrine testing demonstrated to be predictable of a recovery of the hypothalamo-pituitary axis after the removal of the mass effect caused by the giant aneurysm. Expand
[Neuro-AIDS: a multicenter neuroradiological study].
TLDR
The results are described of a retrospective multicentric CT/MR study of 141 neuro-AIDS patients, where HIV and cryptococcal infections were the main pathologic agents and a high tendency of evolution towards focal lesions was observed, even in negative cases. Expand
