The role of cholesterol in the pathogenesis of stroke, the role of the treatment of hypercholesterolemia in the prevention of stroke have been controversed. The explanation was based on the heterogenous characteristics of stroke, on the relationship between several risk factors, and on the role of the age, in the evaluation of these 2 questions. The(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to re-evaluate the clinical features of stroke in children, their outcome and the place of the different mechanisms, in the light of CT-scan and magnetic resonance imaging. METHODS A 10-year review of the Dijon Childhood Neurology Clinic experience (1985-1995) identified 54 patients with arterial stroke. Diagnosis was(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We aimed to evaluate the association between 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) levels and both clinical severity at admission and outcome at discharge in stroke patients. METHODS From February 2010 to December 2010, consecutive stroke patients admitted to the Department of Neurology of Dijon, France, were identified. Clinical(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Suffering a stroke during the weekend is associated with a poorer prognosis. The impact of implementing a dedicated stroke care network in Dijon, France, in 2003 on 30-day mortality in strokes/transient ischaemic attacks (TIA) occurring during weekends/bank holidays was evaluated. METHODS All cases of stroke and TIA from 1985 to(More)
INTRODUCTION The central nervous system involvement has been reported in 20% of cases of primary Sjogrën's syndrome (SS), a chronic autoimmune disease characterized by a disorder of the exocrine glands secondary to progressive lymphocyte infiltration. Classically described neurological manifestations include sensorimotor deficits, aseptic meningitis or(More)
The clinical presentation, risk factors, causes, vital or functional prognosis, and acute management options for stroke occurring in neonates and children are specific, differing from those observed in young adults. Compared with the adult population, less is known about the epidemiology of stroke in the under-18 population where the disease could become(More)
BACKGROUND There is little reliable population based information about the distribution of risk factors among the various ischaemic stroke subtypes, even though determining risk factor profiles is of major importance to develop targeted preventive strategies. METHODS The distribution of first ever ischaemic stroke subtypes was established in a prospective(More)
INTRODUCTION Although rare, adenocarcinoma is the most frequent neoplasm of the ethmoid sinus and must be regarded as an occupational disease secondary to chronic wood dust exposure. Few cases with neurological metastasis have been reported. CASE REPORT We report the cases of two patients who developed a multiple cranial nerve disorder for the first case(More)
BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation (AF) is strongly associated with age, and epidemiologic studies are needed to evaluate the impact of both aging of the population and the use of anticoagulant therapy in patients with AF on the incidence of cardioembolic stroke with AF (CE/AF stroke). METHODS We evaluated trends in incidence rates, risk factors, prestroke(More)
PURPOSE A better understanding of the significance of diffuse hyperdensity affecting the circle of Willis and the dural sinuses on unenhanced CT. MATERIALS AND METHODS We performed a retrospective study of 19 patients with a neurological manifestation and a CT scan without contrast injection. Among these 19 patients, six had been included because of(More)
