Miller Fisher syndrome (MFS) is characterised by ophthalmoplegia, ataxia and areflexia. Reports on cerebellar ataxia and supranuclear oculomotor derangement in MFS suggested an additional involvement of the central nervous system (CNS), resembling Bickerstaff's brainstem encephalitis (BBE). In the present report, a patient with a monophasic acute illness,(More)
Cisplatin (CDDP) is a potent anticancer drug, and neurotoxicity is one of its most important dose-limiting toxicities. In this study we investigated the role of recombinant human erythropoietin (rhuEPO) for protection against CDDP-induced neurotoxicity. All experiments were conducted on female Wistar-albino rats. Animals were randomly assigned to three(More)
A 22-year-old male patient presented with paroxysmal hyperhidrosis, mydriasis, hypertension, and tachycardia. Cranial and cervical MRI revealed focal atrophy in the high order zone of the central autonomic network and syringomyelia. His physical and neurological examinations were unremarkable. Physiological testing included EEG, SPECT, serum/urine tests and(More)
A case of progressive encephalomyelitis with rigidity (PEWR) associated with hepatitis C virus (HCV) is reported. A 58 year-old woman presented with a clinical picture of progressive quadriparesis, sensory loss, sphincter dysfunction, painful muscle spasms in the upper and lower limbs and continuous muscle unit activity in electromyography. She developed(More)
BACKGROUND This study was performed in order to investigate the effect of antispastic positioning on spasticity by using different assessment methods. METHODS A total of 16 patients (11 males [68.75%] and five females [31.25%]), diagnosed as spastic diplegic and referred to the School of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation, Paediatric Rehabilitation Unit(More)
We assessed multimodal evoked potentials (EPs) in 13 children with newly diagnosed neurologically symptomatic Wilson's disease (WD) and in their first degree symptom-free relatives, consisting of seven presymptomatic and 15 asymptomatic siblings and 22 asymptomatic parents. EP abnormalities of at least one modality and one side stimulation were observed in(More)
Different surgical modifications were studied to improve success in terminolateral neurorrhaphy. The authors evaluated the efficacy of distal epineurial excision of the recipient nerve stump. Forty male Wistar rats were evaluated in four groups. The right hind limbs of the animals were used as experimental limbs and the left hind limbs as control limbs. The(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Segmental stabilization training and electrical stimulation are used as a treatment for patients with low back pain. There is limited information on the efficacy of two interventions in the literature. In this study, the efficacy of the two interventions on the multifidus muscle activation and fatigue, segmental stabilization(More)
Cisplatin (CDDP) is a potent anticancer drug. Neurotoxicity is one of the most important dose-limiting toxicity of CDDP. We investigated the role of amifostine in the protection against CDDP-induced neurotoxicity especially on the motor nerves. All experiments were conducted on female Wistar albino rats. Animals were randomly assigned to two groups, each(More)
