Reports on citrullinemia usually describe the imaging findings in the adult form of the disease. However, neuroimaging findings of neonatal cases are seldom reported. We report on the diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of a one-year old infant with neonatal citrullinemia during an acute episode and discuss possible underlying(More)
PURPOSE Our aim was to investigate the [(1)H] MR spectroscopy (MRS) findings of Lafora Disease (LD), which is a disabling form of progressive myoclonic epilepsy. METHODS Twelve patients diagnosed with LD and 12 control subjects underwent MRS studies with single-voxels of 8 cc obtained in the frontal lobe, pons, and cerebellum. The metabolites and NAA/Cr,(More)
INTRODUCTION The radiological diagnosis of cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) has to be made as soon as possible, since surgery performed in earlier stages during the course of CSM was reported to be more successful when compared with later stages. We hypothesized that diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) may detect CSM in earlier stages, before the appearance(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Thromboembolic events may occur during or after the treatment of intracranial aneurysms with Guglielmi detachable coils (GDCs). The purpose of this study was to determine the frequency of thromboembolic events associated with balloon-assisted coil placement and to investigate possible risk factors for these events during(More)
We present a case of wide-necked giant aneurysm located at the P1-P2 segment of the posterior cerebral artery. The initial goal for treatment of the aneurysm was hemodynamic flow redirection with subsequent thrombosis so the procedure and involved stent placement to the neck of the aneurysm without any filling material. During follow up, significant(More)
Anahtar Sözcükler: Talamik enfarkt, davranış değişiklikleri, iskemik inme. ABSTRACT Thalamus is a mass of gray matter, which plays a role in the transmission of sensory and motor information to the primary sensory and motor centers of the cerebral cortex, cerebellum and basal ganglia. Vascular lesions of thalamus may occur in different syndromes depending(More)
Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is a clinicoradiological entity characterized by epileptic seizures, headaches, altered mental status and focal neurological signs. Hypertension is the second most common condition associated with PRES. The 50-year-old-male patient with, right-sided hemiparesis and speech disturbances admitted to our(More)
PURPOSE Previous functional neuroimaging studies showed that the brainstem may have an important role in migraine and recently, DTI studies demonstrated that structural alterations in migraineurs may extend beyond the normal appearing brain tissue. The aim of our study was to find out if DTI may detect any abnormality during the spontaneous migraine(More)
