INTRODUCTION According to the International Headache Society, ophthalmoplegic migraine is recurrent attacks of headache with migrainous characteristics associated with paresis of one or more ocular cranial nerves (commonly the third nerve) in the absence of any demonstrable intracranial lesion. We report a patient with typical clinical features of(More)
Cerebrovascular blood flow in absence seizures and flow patterns during the ictal period have not been thoroughly investigated. We aimed to evaluate cerebral blood flow changes in typical juvenile absence seizures during the ictal and postictal phases. Seizures were recorded in three patients (mean age: 21 +/- 1 years) with multiple daily typical absence(More)
OBJECTIVES Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the human central nervous system. In the present study, we aimed to determine adiponectin, tumor necrosis factor-α, interleukin (IL)-12p70, and IL-13 levels in the sera of patients with MS and to investigate the effects of interferon (IFN), glatiramer acetate (GA), and immunosuppressive(More)
Vitamin D deficiency is suggested to be associated with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Our aim was to investigate the serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 (25OHD) levels of PD patients in Turkish cohort, to investigate any association of vitamin D binding protein (GC) genotypes with PD due to the significant role of GC in vitamin D transport, to determine whether vitamin(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the association between socioeconomic status and deep brain stimulation (DBS) outcomes in Parkinson's disease (PD). MATERIALS AND METHODS We analyzed a cohort of PD patients who underwent DBS from 2007 to 2011, who had Clinical Global Impression Scale-Improvement subscale (CGI-I) scores at approximately one year postsurgery. We(More)
Vasomotor reactivity, which can be defined as the cerebral vasculature response to hypoxia, is not well known in epilepsy patients. We aimed to evaluate cerebrovascular reserve in idiopathic generalized epilepsy patients using transcranial Doppler ultrasonography (TCD). The study included 20 patients and 20 healthy volunteers. Diagnosis of epilepsy was(More)
Vasomotor response can be tested by means of transcranial Doppler sonography. It is assumed that flow changes during hyperventilation or breath-holding are due to altered resistance caused by changes in the diameter of vessels distal to the M1 segment of the middle cerebral artery. Evaluating velocities of the M2 and M1 segments together may help elucidate(More)
