After levodopa, dopaminergic agonists are the most powerful agents in idiopathic Parkinson's disease treatment. Used in monotherapy or rather in early combination with levodopa, they allow a dramatic reduction of long-term motor side effects of the latter: onset and peak-dose dyskinesias, early morning dystonias. Their gastro-intestinal (nauseas) and(More)
The role of sub-cortical structures in language processing, and more specifically of the striatum, remains controversial. In line with psycholinguistic models stating that language processing implies both the recovery of lexical information and the application of combinatorial rules, the striatum has been claimed to be involved either in the former(More)
The syndrome of painful arm and moving fingers associates pain in one arm or hand with involuntary movement of one or several fingers. In the four cases described, an association between a central and a peripheral nervous system lesion is demonstrated or suspected. Treatment of the condition is disappointing.
BACKGROUND Epidemiological data concerning the prevalence of major depression in PD patients in Belgium is very scarce. METHODS A total of 1086 patients with idiopathic Parkinsons disease were included in the analysis. The neurological evaluation of the patients was made by the Hoehn and Yahr Staging of Parkinsons disease, the Unified Parkinson Disease(More)
The authors report a first case of chronic motor axonal neuropathy involving ENT manifestations, in a 64-year-old male presenting with gait difficulties, effort dyspnoea and dysphonia. Eleven months after the first symptoms, he developed severe hypoventilation, limb weakness and bilateral vocal fold palsy and had to be intubated for respiratory failure. The(More)
In patients with acquired immuno-deficiency syndrome, the differential diagnosis between primary brain lymphoma and toxoplasma encephalitis is not radiologically always straightforward, especially in the presence of a solitary cerebral lesion. In this context, involvement of the corpus callosum is almost exclusively associated with primary brain lymphoma.(More)
BACKGROUND There is an urgent need to assess and improve the consent process in clinical trials of innovative therapies for neurodegenerative disorders. METHODS We performed a longitudinal study of the consent of Huntington's disease patients during the Multicenter Fetal Cell Intracerebral Grafting Trial in Huntington's Disease (MIG-HD) in France and(More)
BACKGROUND Continuous delivery to the jejunum of levodopa-carbidopa is a promising therapy in patients with advanced Parkinson's disease, as it reduces motor fluctuation. Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy and jejunal tube (PEG-J) placement is a suitable option for this. However, studies focused in PEG-J management are lacking. OBJECTIVES We report our(More)
