MRI showed enlargement of the inferior olives in one patient, consistent with the pathology usually associated with palatal myoclonus. The syndrome of progressive ataxia and palatal myoclonus should(More)
To identify factors associated with disease severity, we examined 102 patients with quantitative PCR-confirmed leptospirosis in Martinique during 2010-2013. Associated factors were hypotension, chest auscultation abnormalities, icterus, oligo/anuria, thrombocytopenia, prothrombin time <68%, high levels of leptospiremia, and infection with L. interrogans(More)
The authors' purpose was to confirm their hypotheses based on their prior study of the effect of tiapride and lorazepam on memorizing capacities of patients over sixty years of age. The results of a two weeks, double-blind trial show that tiapride, in addition to its sedative action, produces disinhibition and enhances wakefulness, thereby improving memory(More)
Starting from a study of memory performances while prescription in double blind of lorazepam (2 mg/day) versus tiapride (100 mg/day), during ten days, to patients over sixty years of age, the authors try to analyse the links between anxiety, anxiolysis and attention and memory capacities. Results seem to indicate that beyond anxiolysis, these products could(More)
Our purpose was to investigate the action on memory disorders of patients over sixty years of age of a well tolerated sedative neuroleptic, tiapride, and of a short-half-life benzodiazepine, lorazepam. Thirty subjects divided into two groups were entered in a three week trial. The product's effect on both anterograde memory and remote memory was assessed by(More)
