Familial transthyretin (TTR) amyloidosis commonly presents with peripheral neuropathy and involvement of visceral organs. In contrast, signs of central nervous system (CNS) involvement are exceptional. We report that members of a kindred affected by a slowly progressive dementia, seizures, ataxia, hemiparesis, and decreased vision without neuropathy have(More)
Sleep apnea in association with neurologic disease is uncommon, and its documentation with nocturnal polysomnography (PSG) is rare. Two patients with posterior fossa neurologic disease had obstructive and central sleep apnea on PSG. The first was a 40-year-old woman who experienced a respiratory arrest ten days after neurosurgical decompression of a(More)
Members of a German family living in Ohio (United States) have been found to have dominantly inherited amyloidosis causing dementia, seizures, strokes, coma and visual deterioration. Pathological examination of affected individuals has shown severe, diffuse amyloidosis of the leptomeninges and subarachnoid vessels associated with patchy fibrosis and(More)
Using laser beam immunonephelometry, we confirmed the value of Tourtellotte's formula in the diagnosis of MS. Moreover, since immunonephelometry presents several advantages, including simplicity, rapidity, and precision, it is a promising technique for the diagnosis of MS. Complicated measurements are not necessary. Determinations take only minutes. The(More)
To measure myelin basic protein (MBP)-like material in cerebrospinal fluid, we compared two radioimmunoassays, both using the same antiserum to MBP but one using peptide (45-89) as the radioligand and standard (peptide assay), and the other using purified MBP as the radioligand and standard (MBP assay), with respect to their diagnostic sensitivity.(More)
An assay for leukocyte adherence to measles-infected cells (MIC) was evaluated in 56 patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), 37 normal subjects, 29 patients with nonneurological diseases, and 57 patients with other neurological diseases. In the assay, rosettes were formed consisting of three or more leukocytes adherent to one MIC. Two aspects of the(More)
