The four cases presented here (ages 8-9, two females) illustrate(More)
Following oral administration of (+)-catechin and 3-O-methyl-(+)-catechin to human volunteers the major urinary metabolites were shown to be the glucuronides of 3′-O-methyl-(+)-catechin and 3,3′-O-dimethyl-(+)-catechin respectively. Isolations from urine and from synthetic products have been carried out by semi-preparative high performance liquid(More)
This study sought to identify neurologic correlates of adaptive functioning in individuals with Sturge-Weber syndrome. A total of 18 children, adolescents, and young adults with Sturge-Weber syndrome with brain involvement were recruited from our Sturge-Weber center. All underwent neurologic examination (including review of clinical brain magnetic resonance(More)
Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) is characterized by seizures, port-wine birthmarks, vascular malformations, and rarely studied psychobehavioral features. This study describes a small group of outpatients (N = 16, age, 3-34 years) with Sturge-Weber syndrome seeking medical services (due to seizures, ophthalmological, and dermatological problems among others).(More)
