OBJECTIVE To determine the usefulness of perfusion MR imaging in assessing the histologic grade of cerebral gliomas. MATERIALS AND METHODS In order to determine relative cerebral blood volume (rCBV), 22 patients with pathologically proven gliomas (9 glioblastomas, 9 anaplastic gliomas and 4 low-grade gliomas) underwent dynamic contrast-enhanced(More)
METHODS We studied four patients with diabetes mellitus and chronic renal failure who developed sudden choreic movement disorders. The clinical manifestations, laboratory findings, MR imaging findings, and clinical outcome in each patient were evaluated. RESULTS All four patients had long-term diabetes mellitus and severe azotaemia. Brain MR findings(More)
Previously, we reported that R(+)HA-966, a weak partial agonist for the glycine/NMDA receptor, and guanfacine, a noradrenergic alpha2 agonist, have anxiolytic-like actions on the biochemical activation of the mesoprefrontal dopamine neurons and fear-induced behaviors. Here, we examined these two putative anxiolytic agents, both with primary actions(More)
This report investigates the effect of the negative enantiomer of 1-hydroxy-3-aminopyrrolidone-2 (HA-966) on behavioral and biochemical changes elicited by pharmacological or experimental paradigms which activate mesocorticolimbic dopaminergic neurotransmission. Several paradigms were used, including cocaine sensitization and two stressors: restraint for 30(More)
OBJECTIVE To demonstrate a variety of MR imaging findings of orbital inflammatory pseudotumors with extraorbital extension. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the MR features of five patients, who were diagnosed clinically and radiologically as having an orbital inflammatory pseudotumor with extraorbital extension. RESULTS The types of(More)
Foot drop usually results from lesions affecting the peripheral neural pathway related to dorsiflexor muscles, especially the peroneal nerve. Although a central nervous system lesion is suspected when there is a lack of clinical evidence for a lower motor neuron lesion, such cases are extremely rare. We describe a patient with sudden isolated foot drop(More)
The Korean law on medicine was amended in 2003 to introduce new provisions for telemedicine, electronic medical record, and electronic prescription. However, this has not satisfied the realities of the increased demand on medical services and related technology development, resulting in calls for a legislative amendment. In this regard, recent active(More)
Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) disease is a systemic disease consisting of bilateral granulomatous panuveitis combined with cutaneous and neurologic manifestations. However, there have been few reports of brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in VKH disease. A 54-year-old Korean woman presented with severe periorbital pain, blurred vision and meningismus.(More)
BACKGROUND The clinical and pathological heterogeneity of progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) is well established. Even with a well-defined clinical phenotype and a thorough laboratory workup, PSP can be misdiagnosed, especially in its early stages. CASE REPORT A 52-year-old woman, who we initially diagnosed with a behavioral variant of frontotemporal(More)
