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)
PURPOSE The purpose of this project was to study the effect of chitosan bead encapsulating calcium sulfate, which provides a sustained release of chitosan and calcium sulfate after implantation, on early bony consolidation in distraction osteogenesis of a dog model. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-five dogs were used for this study. An external distraction(More)
Epilepsia partialis continua (EPC) is clinically defined as a syndrome of continuous focal jerking of a body part, usually a distal limb, occurring over hours, days, or even years.

The purpose of this project was to study the effect of chitosan microsphere-encapsulated human growth hormone, which causes sustained release of chitosan and human growth hormone after implantation on early bony consolidation in distraction osteogenesis of a canine model. Forty-eight dogs were used for this study. An external distraction device was applied(More)
We report a case of a 38-year-old man with a Varicella zoster virus (VZV) reactivation who manifested meningoencephalitis accompanied by rhabdomyolysis without a skin eruption. During the acute phase, VZV DNA was detected in serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). After 16 days, all symptoms and signs resolved, and(More)
