BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We attempted to identify the cause of abnormal venous flow seen during arterial MR angiography in the inferior petrosal sinus by use of in three female patients (aged 51, 48, and 70 years, respectively). METHODS Arterial 3D time-of-flight MR angiography was performed with a tilted optimized nonsaturating excitation pulse sequence(More)
AIM To investigate the utility of diffusion-weighted (DW) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the diagnosis of abdominal wall endometrioma (AWE) and to compare the ADC (apparent diffusion coefficient) values of AWE with those of the uterine endometrium during two different phases of the menstrual cycle. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 22 women aged(More)
The authors present the case of a G2P1001 who presented in 16-week gestation with bilateral Krukenberg tumor, abdominal pain, and iterative vomiting episodes. Although a few cases of Krukenberg tumor in pregnant women have been reported, no case reports asymptomatic and free of disease at 18 months were found in the English literature. Early detection(More)
Thinner which contains aromatic hydrocarbons such as xylene, toluene and N-hexane is widely used in industrial plants manufacturing dyes, plastic, varnishes and glues. Chronic intoxication due to abuse of solvents, including thinner, by workers who inhale the solvent vapor is frequently encountered. Acute intoxication with ingestion of excessive amounts is(More)
Improved care of patients with small B-cell lymphomas (SBCLs) is likely to result from the ongoing discovery of molecular markers that better define these malignant neoplasms. We identified multiple gene loci whose DNA methylation patterns differed between 3 types of SBCL: B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma,(More)
Botulinum exotoxin A has been used for the treatment of glabellar frown lines. Despite this fact, the effect of the toxin is sometimes either partial or lost in a short time. The muscles responsible for frowning, the corrugator supercilii and depressor supercilii muscles, are attached to the periosteum in the glabellar region under the frontalis muscle deep(More)
Common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) is a primary defect of the immune system involving an increased risk of respiratory and digestive tract infections and autoimmune diseases. Recently, it has been reported that chronic inflammatory bowel disease (CIBD) might occur with increased frequency (20%) in patients with CVID. A nine-year-old boy with CVID(More)
Treatment of radiation myelopathy remains a challenge. Supportive and rehabilitative therapy is the mainstay of treatment. This article describes a case of central nervous system (CNS) toxicity of radiation with a progressive improvement in the clinicoradiological picture following high dose steroid treatment. A female patient was admitted to the neurology(More)
Two children with mental retardation, choreoathetosis, dystonia, and muscle rigidity are reported. They had a history of severe hyperbilirubinemia after birth as a result of Rh isoimmunization. The history and clinical picture suggested the diagnosis of kernicterus. The magnetic resonance imaging examination showed a bilateral signal intensity increase in(More)
