BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Basic stroke features are hardly known in sub-Saharan countries, and no data are available in Senegal. METHODS We performed a retrospective hospital-based study in Dakar, Senegal, to assess risk factors and etiology of stroke. Patients were recruited from January 1, 2003, to July 31, 2004, at the Hôpital Principal, Dakar. Strokes(More)
Wernicke's encephalopathy (WE) is one of the potential complications of obesity surgery. It is an acute neuropsychiatric syndrome resulting from thiamine deficiency often associated with repeated vomiting. The classic triad is frequently reported in these patients (optic neuropathy, ataxia and confusion), associated with uncommon features. Cerebral(More)
TO THE EDITOR—Major neurological signs are infrequent in Ebola virus (EV) disease. When present, they consist mainly of meningitis, encephalopathy, and seizures [1, 2]. The physiopathology of brain impairment in EV disease is not well understood. Here, we report the case of an EV disease patient with encephalitis and meningitis from whom cerebrospinal fluid(More)
Eosinophil accumulation in the gastrointestinal tract is a common feature of numerous disorders including mainly parasitic infection, drug-induced allergic reactions, inflammatory bowel disease, and various connective tissue disorders. Digestive tissue eosinophilia requires thorough searching for secondary causes that may be specifically treated with(More)
The effectiveness of anti-vectorial malaria protective measures in travellers and expatriates is hampered by incorrect compliance. The objective of the present study was to identify the determinants of compliance with anti-vectorial protective measures (AVPMs) in this population that is particularly at risk because of their lack of immunity. Compliance with(More)
OBJECTIVE The identification of a predisposition toward malignant hyperthermia (MH) as a risk factor for exertional heat stroke (EHS) remains a matter of debate. Such a predisposition indicates a causal role for MH susceptibility (MHS) after EHS in certain national recommendations and has led to the use of an in vitro contracture test (IVCT) to identify the(More)
BACKGROUND The pathogenesis of Ebola virus disease (EVD) remains unclear. The sporadic nature of Ebola outbreaks and their occurrence in resource-limited settings have precluded the acquisition of extensive clinical and laboratory data. Rhabdomyolysis during EVD has been suggested to occur in previous studies showing increased aspartate(More)
We attempted transplantation of adult neural stem cells (ANSCs) inside an autologous venous graft following surgical transsection of nervis cruralis with 30 mm long gap in adult pig. The transplanted cell suspension was a primary culture of neurospheres from adult pig subventricular zone (SVZ) which had been labeled in vitro with BrdU or lentivirally(More)
