We describe a rare case of an intradural spinal chordoma. Only two cases have been previously reported and it is the second case diagnosed with MRI. A 65-year-old man presented with progressive disturbance of gait and weakness in the lower extremities. MRI revealed a intradural C6-C7 isointense mass, on T1- and T2-weighted images. The lesion enhanced after(More)
INTRODUCTION West's syndrome is known to have symptomatic, cryptogenetic and idiopathic forms. Greater knowledge of the different pathologies and the development of new diagnostic techniques have allowed the list of symptomatic forms to be extended and congenital disorders of the metabolism account for a significant percentage as an aetiopathogenic factor.(More)
INTRODUCTION Pontocerebellar hypoplasias constitute a group of hereditary neurodegenerative disorders of uncertain aetiopathogenesis. They have been reported as being associated with deficiencies of complexes in the mitochondrial respiratory chain (MRC) and with congenital disorders of glycosylation. On the basis of clinical and neuropathological criteria,(More)
INTRODUCTION Infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy (INAD), or Seitelberger disease, is a neurodegenerative disease of unknown origin which is transmitted by autosomal recessive inheritance. Clinically, it courses with psychomotor stagnation and regression that begins at the age of one or two years, associated to hypotonia with mixed clinical features (segmentary(More)
INTRODUCTION Multiple symmetric lipomatosis (MSL), which is predominantly found in middle aged males, is characterised by accumulations of fat in the neck, shoulders and other parts of the trunk, and sometimes associated with different neurological manifestations, both central and peripheral. Although its aetiology is unknown, it has been described as(More)
INTRODUCTION gamma-sarcoglicanopathies, also classified as limb girdle muscular dystrophy type 2C (LGMD2C) are a group of autosomal recessive muscular dystrophies due to mutations in 13q12 and subsequent g sarcoglican deficiency. The protein is one of the components of the dystrophin associated glycoprotein complex and is thought to impart structural(More)
INTRODUCTION The recent discovery of the dystrophin-associated complex of glycoproteins led to the delineation of sarcoglycanopathies, a phenotypically similar to dystrophinopathies group of clinically heterogeneous and progressive muscular dystrophies. The objective of this paper is to report the clinical, biochemical, histological, immunohistochemical and(More)
We report the case of a fetus aborted at gestation week 20 because of hydranencephalic-hydrocephalic syndrome. The fetus was the third pregnancy of a nonconsanguineous couple whose first child exhibited congenital hydranencephalic-hydrocephalic syndrome associated with muscle histology findings consistent with mitochondrial cytopathy and deficiency of(More)
