The recent development of SPECT has introduced a new procedure to evaluate neurological diseases. By mean of Tc99mHM-PAO we studied a group of 19 pediatric subjects (7 males and 12 females) with different form of migraine, within five days after the last headache attack. Postictally SPECT shows regionally decreased CBF in 3/4 of HM, in 5/6 of BAM, in 5/5 of… (More)
In recent years, besides the consumption of fresh sea urchin specimens, the demand of minimally-processed roe has grown considerably. This product has made frequent consumption in restaurants possible and frauds are becoming widespread with the partial replacement of sea urchin roe with surrogates that are similar in colour. One of the main factors that… (More)
SPECT scanning with Tc99mHM-PAO was performed on 40 children with 'intractable' partial epilepsy; 27 patients had abnormalities on SPECT images consisting of areas of decreased cerebral blood flow. In 18 of these 27 subjects there was a good correlation between site of the abnormalities on SPECT scan and interictal EEG foci. 12 patients with regionally… (More)
The AA. report the case of an anorexic girl, who could resume her evolutive process after an individual psychotherapy and parent's psychotherapy. In this way she could work out her defensive mechanisms and her EGO could internalize a previous menacing and persecutory maternal object.
The authors refer their experience in the treatment of intractable childhood epilepsies (18 cases) with intravenous gamma globulin. Seven patients showed great reduction or indeed disappearance of the seizures whereas modest improvement was observed in other 4 cases. A better organization of the EEG corresponded to this clinical improvement with a reduction… (More)
A case of acute onset of partial ophthalmoplegia, ataxia and areflexia in a child is described. This case closely resembles those described by Fisher (Fisher syndrome). Clinical data, also in relation to the few cases previously reported, are discussed.
