INTRODUCTION Behçet's disease (BD) is a multisystem inflammatory disease of unknown etiology that may affect the CNS - Neuro-Behçet (NB). Our aim was to evaluate the frequency of neurological involvement and characterize a cohort of our NB patients. METHODS We retrospectively revised the clinical, laboratory and imaging data of a cohort of BD patients,(More)
Urban dengue fever is now considered a major public health threat in most American countries. A household survey was conducted in the city of Goiania in central Brazil in 2001 to assess prevalence of dengue infection and individual and area-based risk factors. Spatial point pattern analysis was performed using the dual Kernel method. A total of 1,610(More)
Acute hemorrhagic leukoencephalitis (AHLE) is a rare and fulminant demyelinating disease considered to be the most severe form of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM). A 70-year-old man was admitted to our emergency department (ED) after 1 week of unspecific abdominal symptoms and moderate fever in the first 3 days. Within the ED he developed a rapid(More)
Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is an uncommon neurological disorder, characterised by the rapid onset of neurological deficits and characteristic neuroimaging findings-cerebral oedema with a typical preference for the posterior white matter.

It is fast, non-invasive and does not require gadolinium administration. Due to the increasing robustness of the results, it is becoming an important clinical tool.In this article we present our initial(More)
Robots created for education have different purposes, from learning algorithms to learning robotics. It has been shown that robots can increase the student's interest. Our proposed robot, REDi, uses wire programming to introduce students to the basics of robotics and algorithms. With this robot, attractive, interactive demonstrations can be achieved even(More)
INTRODUCTION Dural arteriovenous fistulae (DAVF) are usually acquired and when presented with cortical venous drainage are associated with high risk of hemorrhage. They can be treated by arterial or venous embolization, by surgery or by the combination of both techniques. Transvenous approach induces venous sinus thrombosis increasing the risk of venous(More)
