Infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy is a degenerative disease, mostly of nerve endings in the central and peripheral nervous system, with typical pathological findings. We describe a 3-year-old boy who had suffered from nystagmus, progressive muscle weakness and dementia since the age of 10 months. Biochemical work-up, MRI of the brain, and electrophysiological(More)
OBJECTIVE Late-life hoarding is a serious psychiatric condition with significant implications in health and functioning. Geriatric hoarding patients show greater impairment in activities of daily living and have a greater number of medical conditions compared with same-aged nonhoarders. This study examined the relationship between geriatric hoarding(More)
A cohort of 199 individuals with mental retardation referred for behavioral and psychiatric crisis intervention services was studied to determine attributes differentiating physically aggressive behavior from other behavioral problems. Individuals with aggressive and nonaggressive behavior had similar neurological histories and current medical status and(More)
A child with the distinguishing characteristics of Weissenbacher-Zweymuller syndrome (WZS), a rare syndrome characterized by multiple skeletal and radiological abnormalities, dwarfism and developmental delays, was followed from birth to eight years. Follow-up showed that the radiographic anomalies eventually disappeared, and that height, motor, cognitive(More)
OBJECTIVES We investigated (1) age of onset of hoarding disorder (HD) symptoms and diagnosis, (2) late-onset HD, (3) progression of HD symptoms, and (4) association between demographics and hoarding progression. METHOD Eighty-two older adults with HD provided retrospective ratings of their hoarding symptoms for each decade of life. Age of onset of(More)
Underserved ethnic minorities have multiple chronic disease risk factors, including tobacco, alcohol and substance use, which contribute to increased incidence of stroke. Self-efficacy (self-care self-efficacy), religious participation and depression may directly and indirectly influence engagement in post stroke self-care behaviors. The primary aim of the(More)

METHODS Hierarchical regression was used to test the associations between hoarding severity, as defined by(More)
The molecular beam electric resonance technique has been used to conduct a high precision examination of the hyperfine spectrum of the four isotopomers of RbCl. Coupling constants for the nuclear electric quadrupole interactions, the spin-rotation interactions, the tensor and scalar spin-spin interactions, and a rubidium nuclear octupole interaction, and(More)
