BACKGROUND Frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) comprises of behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD) and primary progressive aphasia (PPA) with its 3 main variants, namely nonfluent/agrammatic (naPPA), semantic (svPPA) and logopenic (lvPPA). Recently a clinical syndrome with predominant right temporal atrophy was recognized (rvFTD). FTLD(More)
In 1994, the term "Pick complex" was proposed to indicate significant clinical and pathological overlapping between primary progressive aphasia, frontal lobe dementia and corticobasal degeneration. We report the case of a 60-year-old man, who initially presented progressive non-fluent aphasia with orofacial apraxia, and subsequently, over a period of 3(More)
Although the coincidence of multiple sclerosis (MS) and central nervous system (CNS) tumors has been reported in over 30 cases in English literature, meningioma growth was associated with interferon-beta (INF-b) treated MS only in two of them. We report the case of a 19-year-old woman with clinically possible, laboratory supported MS, and a concomitant(More)
Cobalamin-deficient myelopathy is a neurologic disorder manifesting progressive symptoms of paresthesiae and spastic paralysis. The pathologic changes initially involve the posterior columns of the cervical and upper thoracic cord. The authors present the case of a patient with cobalamin deficiency with preferential posterior columns involvement, as(More)
Transient epileptic amnesia (TEA) is a recently described, typically misdiagnosed at presentation, distinctive syndrome, characterized by recurrent, brief attacks of memory loss in middle-aged or elderly people, accompanied by significant interictal memory difficulties. We describe the clinical, neuroimaging, electrophysiological, and neuropsychological(More)
BACKGROUND Multiple sclerosis (MS) only rarely coexists with ankylosing spondylitis (AS). The optimal management of these patients represents a major challenge. METHODS In the present study, we report 2 cases of AS with definite MS comorbidity. One of the AS-MS cases had received anti-TNFα treatment, which was discontinued due to exacerbation of the MS.(More)
A 70-year-old hypertensive woman suffered a subarachnoid haemorrhage followed by delayed vasospasm in the basal cerebral arteries. This resulted in multiple ischaemic lesions in the right middle cerebral artery region and contralateral post-ischaemic palatal myoclonus. In this setting, piracetam administered in high doses (24-36 g/day), abolished the(More)
Using 20 rabbits, we tried to establish a new model of experimental subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) for examining both acute and chronic cerebral vasospasm. A cranial opening was drilled, and a puncture made on the posterior branch of the middle cerebral artery. A second puncture was made in the superior sagittal sinus for additional withdrawal of(More)
