This article analyses the clinical characteristics of elderly patients treated in an outpatient headache unit. METHODS We collected demographic and clinical data from(More)
Psoriasis is a chronic systemic disease with important skin manifestations, affecting 2 % of the population. It is more frequent and severe in obese patients, and both have been associated with a higher cardiovascular risk. Recent studies suggest that weight loss may improve psoriasis and metabolic comorbidities in obese patients. We reviewed our(More)
Chickens were used to investigate kinetic properties including metabolism of flumequine after single IV and oral dose, and to study tissue depletion of flumequine after multiple oral doses. Plasma and tissue (muscle, kidney, liver and skin plus fat) concentrations of flumequine and its metabolite 7-hydroxyflumequine were determined using a HPLC method.(More)
Epicrania fugax (EF) was first described by Pareja et al in 2008 [1]. It has been recently included in the Appendix of the 3rd edition of The International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICHD-III, beta version) [2]. It is characterized by ultrabrief paroxysms of unilateral pain spreading from the posterior scalp to the ipsilateral eye or nose, along(More)
INTRODUCTION Supraorbital neuralgia (SON) is an uncommon disorder characterized by pain in the area supplied by the supraorbital nerve, which covers the medial aspect of the forehead, together with tenderness over the supraorbital notch or along the course of the nerve. Few hospital-based series of non-trauma SON have been published. METHODS AND RESULTS(More)
OnabotulinumtoxinA (OnabotA) was approved for treatment of chronic migraine (CM) after publication of PREEMPT trials. Thus, we set out to evaluate the efficacy of OnabotA in a series of patients with CM treated according to the PREEMPT protocol. In May 2012 we began to offer OnabotA to patients with CM who did not respond to topiramate and at least one(More)
INTRODUCTION Chronic migraine (CM) is a complication of episodic migraine, favored by risk factors as medication overuse (MO). We intend to compare demographic and clinic characteristics of a series of CM patients, with and without MO. METHODS The study included patients with CM (2006 revised criteria) attended in a headache outpatient office located in a(More)
Six pigs were used in a two-period crossover study to investigate the pharmacokinetics of amoxycillin after single intravenous and oral doses of 20 mg/kg bodyweight. Twelve pigs were used to study the residues of the drug in muscle, kidney, liver and fat after they had received daily oral doses of 20 mg/kg amoxycillin for five days. The mean (sd)(More)
INTRODUCTION Hemicrania continua is characterised by a continuous unilateral pain, which frequently gets worse in association with autonomic symptoms. It is probably little known and underdiagnosed. Its diagnosis requires a response to indomethacin, which is not always well tolerated. AIMS We report a series of 36 cases of hemicrania continua that were(More)
