Recent data have provided overwhelming evidence in favor of benefits of emergent endovascular intervention in large vessel acute ischemic stroke (AIS). India with its large population has a huge burden of AIS. Hence, neurologists need to gear up to the new challenge of providing interventional care to huge populations of AIS in the country. The best way to(More)
Preclinical studies are essential for translation to disease treatments and effective use in clinical practice. An undue emphasis on single approaches to Alzheimer's disease (AD) appears to have retarded the pace of translation in the field, and there is much frustration in the public about the lack of an effective treatment. We critically reviewed past(More)
OBJECTIVES The neuromuscular transmission failure in acute organophosphate (OP) poisoning occurs because of the irreversible inactivation of the enzyme acetylcholinesterase located in the neuromuscular junction, and is distinguished neuroelectrophysiologically by single electrical stimulus-induced repetitive responses and either a decremental or a(More)
PURPOSE To assess the association of long-term sodium valproate therapy with reproductive endocrine disorders in Indian women with generalized epilepsy. METHODS Clinical parameters, ovarian morphology, and serum reproductive hormone concentrations were evaluated in 30 clinically normal and eumenorrheic reproductive age women with generalized epilepsy who(More)
CONTEXT Accumulating evidence suggests that vitamin D deficiency is associated with increased risk of stroke. Contributing mechanisms have been linked to the association of vitamin D deficiency with the presence of hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and atherosclerosis, however, the evidence is conflicting. AIMS This study sought to determine the(More)
Acute organophosphate (OP) poisoning is one of the most common poisonings in emergency medicine and toxicological practice in some of the less-developed nations in South Asia. Traditionally, OP poisoning comes under the domain of emergency physicians, internists, intensivists, and toxicologists. However, some of the complications following OP poisoning are(More)
Neurolymphomatosis, defined as invasion of cranial nerves and peripheral nerve roots, plexus or nerves by Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma is a very rare clinical entity. We describe a case of 69 years old gentleman, who presented to us with asymmetric, painful sensorimotor polyneuropathy. He was admitted with 2 months history of dry cough, constitutional symptoms,(More)
A 64-year-old woman, diabetic and hypertensive, presented with sudden onset painless diplopia and alteration of consciousness. She was drowsy with neurological examination revealing exotropia of both eyes in primary position with bilateral internu-clear ophthalmoplegia on attempted horizontal gaze (Figure 1a). Pupils were normal bilaterally. Convergence,(More)
PURPOSE We determined the prognostic significance of CT perfusion characteristics of patients with cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) and assessed the change in perfusion parameters following anticoagulation therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS 20 patients with CVST diagnosed on non-contrast computed tomography (NCCT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and(More)
A 27-year-old man, recent visitor to the Middle East, presented with 6-week history of fever (up to 102°F) followed by altered behavior and left hemiparesis. CSF was acellular with raised protein (138 mg/dL). CSF bacterial culture was sterile; adenosine deaminase normal (3 U/L); cryptococcal antigen, Venereal Disease Research Laboratory test, and Japanese B(More)
