Previous MR studies have established that bilateral transverse sinus stenosis (BTSS) predicts idiopathic intracranial hypertension without papilledema (IIHWOP) in migraine. However, it is uncertain whether BTSS identifies IIHWOP in patients with chronic tension-type headache (CTTH): using cerebral MR venography this study aimed to address this question.In a(More)
BACKGROUND Bilateral transverse sinus (TS) stenosis has been found in more than 90% of patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH). OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether TS stenosis changed after normalization of CSF pressure in patients with IIH during medical treatment. METHODS Fourteen consecutive patients with IIH with bilateral TS stenosis on(More)
BACKGROUND The headache profile of patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension without papilledema (IIHWOP) may be indistinguishable from that of migraine. Bilateral transverse sinus stenosis (BTSS) has been found in the majority of patients with IIHWOP. The frequency of BTSS associated with IIHWOP in patients with migraine is unknown. OBJECTIVE To(More)
Guillain-Barrè syndrome (GBS) is an acute, paralyzing, inflammatory peripheral nerve disease, featured by monophasic disease course, symmetrical limb weakness and areflexia. Several pathologies can mimic the clinical presentation of GBS, making hard the differential diagnosis for patients complaining of acute flaccid paralysis. In this paper we describe(More)
