BACKGROUND Even though progress has been made, the detection of melanoma still poses a challenge. In light of this situation, the Nevisense electrical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) system (SciBase AB, Stockholm, Sweden) was designed and shown to have the potential to be used as an adjunct diagnostic tool for melanoma detection. OBJECTIVES To assess the(More)
Neuron-specific enolase (NSE) is a marker of brain injury after acute neurologic insults. We report changes in serum NSE (s-NSE) in 25 patients (15 with epilepsy and 10 patients with nonepileptic events) during continuous inpatient video/EEG monitoring. s-NSE was significantly increased as compared with baseline and normal controls after the first ictal(More)
Auditory brainstem response (ABR) has been used by several investigators to study the role of the brain stem in the pathophysiology of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). These studies have produced conflicting results. We studied 27 preoperative OSA patients and 17 controls using click stimuli presented at a slow (11.7/second) rate and at a fast (57.7/second)(More)
Primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) is a rare disease with a poor prognosis. It usually remains confined to central nervous system (CNS). Reports of metastases outside of the CNS are rare. We report a patient with well-documented PCNSL who responded to treatment, but subsequently developed a histologically confirmed subcutaneous metastasis to(More)
