BACKGROUND Conversion disorder (CD) is no longer a diagnosis of exclusion. The new DSM-V criteria highlight the importance of 'positive signs' on neurological examination. Only few signs have been validated, and little is known about their reliability. OBJECTIVE The aim was to examine the clinical value of bedside positive signs in the diagnosis of CD(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We aimed to assess the interaction between intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) and arterial occlusion on acute cervicocerebral computed tomographic angiography on the outcome of patients with acute ischemic stroke. METHODS Patients from the Acute Stroke Registry and Analysis of Lausanne (ASTRAL) registry with onset-to-door-time ≤4 hours,(More)
INTRODUCTION Increased risks of weight gain and diabetes mellitus have been reported for schizophrenic patients under long-term treatment with several atypical antipsychotic drugs including olanzapine. Among other antipsychotic drugs, treatment with the selective dopamine D2 and D3 receptor antagonist amisulpride has been implicated with a lower risk for(More)
OBJECTIVE To emphasize that complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), a disabling disorder with the implication of aberrant inflammation, vasomotor dysfunction, and maladaptive neuroplasticity, might be treated with a high dose of intravenous immunoglobulin infusions (IVIG). METHODS We describe a patient who presented with CRPS in the acute phase of the(More)
In diabetes mellitus, it is expected to see a common, mainly sensitive, distal symmetrical polyneuropathy (DPN) involving a large proportion of diabetic patients according to known risk factors. Several other diabetic peripheral neuropathies are recognized, such as dysautonomia and multifocal neuropathies including lumbosacral radiculoplexus and oculomotor(More)
Cerebral small vessel disease (cSVD) represents the sum of lesions which define a rather new clinical entity. Indeed, lacunar infarcts which are acute events of cSVD, represent 25% of all ischemic strokes. However, only few studies have dealt with acute and long term management of such stroke. Despite its rather early description around the XIXth century,(More)
We present a case study of a patient with pure autonomic failure who was successfully treated with ambulatory norepinephrine (NE) infusions over a 9-year-period of time before death occurred unexpectedly. Given this patient's response to the NE infusion treatment, we discuss the option of ambulatory NE infusions as a treatment for severe orthostatic(More)
