Musicogenic epilepsy has a strong correlation with the temporal lobe with a right-sided preponderance. We report the case of a 48-year-old woman whose seizures began at the age of 32 years. Her prenatal, natal and childhood histories were unremarkable and her family history was negative for epilepsy. She had typical complex partial seizures with chewing(More)
The surgical correction of craniofacial clefts is an extremely difficult field in pediatric plastic surgery. Facial clefts are rare entities that most plastic surgeons will rarely have to manage. Various surgical techniques devised by some authors for facial clefts have not still widely accepted. The bifid nose deformity is generally an indicator of Tessier(More)
OBJECTIVE The goal of the study described here was to evaluate interictal heart rate variability (HRV) in young patients with epilepsy, a patient population in whom sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) is known to be more common. METHODS Twenty-four-hour ambulatory ECG Holter recordings of 37 patients (15-40 years old) and 32 healthy controls were(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)
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)
We aimed to investigate the effects of topiramate monotherapy on anthropometric indexes, insulin resistance, and serum leptin and lipid levels in 33 premenopausal women (mean age+/-standard deviation: 26.7+/-7.1years) with cryptogenic epilepsy. Body mass index (BMI), waist circumference and serum leptin, insulin and lipid levels were measured at baseline(More)
The aim of this study was to elucidate the chronic effects of tobacco smoking on the P300, a neurophysiological index of cognitive function. Prospective study participants were recruited from a family medicine polyclinic. We selected 32 right-handed smokers who had smoked more than 15 cigarettes per day, by inhalation, for more than 2 years. The control(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the cardiac repolarization indices in terms of QT intervals in patients with well-controlled partial epilepsy. METHODS Seventy-six adult patients with well-controlled partial epilepsy and 66 healthy controls were enrolled into the study. 12-Lead ECGs were obtained from all participants. Corrected QT (QTc) intervals including maximum(More)
