PURPOSE To characterize epileptic phenotype, electroencephalography (EEG) features, and epileptic evolution in patients with ring 14 r(14) syndrome. METHODS Twenty-two patients with ring chromosome 14 were enrolled in the study. We examined age at onset, seizure semiology and frequency at onset and at follow-up, drug responsiveness/resistance, and(More)
Epilepsy is the most common and serious neurological symptom in ring chromosome 14 syndrome, also characterised by mild dysmorphisms, acquired microcephaly, cognitive impairment, hypotonia and ocular abnormalities. Typically, early-onset, polymorphous and drug-resistant seizures are reported. Status epilepticus has not been previously reported. We describe(More)
Purpose. To evaluate the correlation between MRI and histopathological findings in patients with mammographically detected 3-5 BI-RAD (Breast Imaging Reporting And Data Systems) microcalcifications and to allow a better surgical planning. Materials and Method. 62 female Patients (age 50 ± 12) with screening detected 3-5 BI-RAD microcalcifications underwent(More)
A 3-year-old female infant with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1A had congenital pes cavus, normal motor development, and duplication of the peripheral myelin protein 22 gene, PMP22. Her father, carrying the same gene duplication, developed neuropathy, tremor, and auditory impairment beginning in early adulthood. This is a case of congenital pes cavus in(More)
Corpus luteum cyst rupture with consequent hemoperitoneum is a common disorder in women in their reproductive age. This condition should be promptly recognized and treated because a delayed diagnosis may significantly reduce women's fertility and intra-abdominal bleeding may be life-threatening. Many imaging modalities play a key role in the diagnosis of(More)
We report imaging techniques in the definition of the therapeutic planning of a 65-year-old man with a diagnosis of Pancoast tumor. Computed Tomography has a pivotal role in the assessment of nodes involvement and distant metastasis. Magnetic Resonance allows a detailed study of locoregional extension for its high soft tissue resolution. We particularly(More)
Thyroid ectopia can occur when the process of thyroid embryogenesis fails. Here, we present the case of a 30-year-old woman with thyroid ectopia that was discovered during magnetic resonance imaging of cervical spine for referred neck pain. Imaging revealed the presence of an encapsulated mass at the base of her tongue. The patient was not symptomatic for(More)

Aim of IJCRI is to encourage the publication of new information by providing a platform for reporting of unique, unusual and rare(More)
Mammary Paget's disease is a rare presentation of breast cancer. At clinical examination, it is characterized by skin lesions of the nipple-areola complex, almost always a sign of malignancy. In fact, it is often associated with an underlying mammary ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) or invasive carcinoma. An underlying carcinoma is also common in women with(More)
This article presents a 6-year-old girl who developed acute unilateral third cranial nerve palsy in the absence of any other sign of central nervous system involvement. Raised titers of immunoglobulin M antibodies against GM1, GD1a, and GD1b ganglioside components were demonstrated. Ten days earlier, the girl had experienced acute gastroenteritis with(More)
