Nystagmus has been reported in individuals affected with this disorder, but the origin of the ocular motility findings is unknown. A three-generation family with FHM is described and clinical histories are(More)
A patient received an overdose of intravascular contrast medium and experienced protracted seizures associated with radiographic evidence of prolonged retention of the contrast agent in the cerebral cortex, basal ganglia, and thalami. This is only the second report and the first survivor of a similar neurologic syndrome occurring in a patient after contrast(More)
A 20-year-old man suffered two thalamic infarctions during the course of neuroborreliosis and was successfully treated with intravenous ceftriaxone. Review of 11 additional cases of stroke and cerebral vasculitis in neuroborreliosis suggests that there is a meningovascular form of the infection with predilection for the posterior circulation and an(More)

A patient is described who developed seesaw nystagmus (SSN) associated with progressive severe vision loss due to cone-rod dystrophy. She was otherwise neurologically normal, and findings on magnetic resonance imaging of the brain were normal, including optic chiasm, meso-diencephalic junction, and brainstem. The literature is reviewed on neurologically(More)
Craniofacial implants have been used successfully for the retention of facial prostheses. However, complications occur that can lead to the loss of implant integration. One such complication is infection possibly resulting from crevicular microflora activity. As part of an ongoing study, samples from crevicular sites surrounding 17 craniofacial implants(More)
Erythromycin is not currently recognized as causing clinical aggravation of myasthenia gravis. We report the case of a patient who experienced exacerbations of myasthenia gravis subsequent to each of several doses of intravenous erythromycin. We suggest that erythromycin can cause clinical worsening in patients with disease of the neuromuscular junction.
This report describes two unusual cases of parasellar arachnoid cyst with different neuro-ophthalmologic manifestations and clinical courses: a 33-year-old woman with parasellar arachnoid cyst, manifested by incongruous homonymous hemianopia, and a 64-year-old man with a presumed parasellar arachnoid cyst and bitemporal hemianopia that subsequently(More)
